Branksome’s goal for each graduate is that she succeeds and thrives in university. University Counsellors work closely with all students during their journey through the Senior School.

The IB Diploma Programme is an enriched liberal arts program that is viewed as the gold standard by universities worldwide.

All students, from Junior Kindergarten through Grade 12, follow the IB curriculum

All Branksome Hall students take IB courses in Grades 11 and 12 and students are eligible to complete both the IB Diploma and the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) which makes our graduates uniquely prepared for the rigor of a university education.

We wish to acknowledge this land on which Branksome operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.

Setting the new standard for girls' education everywhere takes collective action. From all of us.
