MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Welcome to Southern Ontario Collegiate
We a private international high school that unlocks opportunities and opens doors for young people from around the world.
At SOC, students record outstanding academic results thanks to modern teaching methods and highly trained staff who work collaboratively to ensure that each student fulfills his or her potential.
Our students gain admission to elite universities in Canada, USA and beyond. We educate the whole child, instilling in them high standards of integrity, personal excellence and respect for others.
The current intake of SOC students come from Nigeria, Vietnam, China, Iran, Ireland, Lebanon and Cameroun. We recognize that we play an important role in promoting Canadian identity and values and an understanding of this country.
I joined Southern Ontario Collegiate as Principal in May 2018 after a long and distinguished career as a teacher, Principal and Consultant for the Ontario Ministry of Education.
Having taught, led and assessed several schools throughout the Province, I find the passion the teachers at SOC have for their subjects and for the children to be outstanding. This is a unique school; a real gem in terms of both academics and holistic care.
It is my honour to be a part of the staff and students of SOC.
Patricia Nanayakarra (Mrs.)
