Our school

About Traf

Perched just above Montreal’s vibrant downtown core, Trafalgar sits on the border of Westmount, one of the city’s safest and coziest boroughs. Our privileged location allows us to draw the best from both worlds: a closeness to the heart of one of North America’s most culturally revered cities, and the warm, familiar embrace of a residential neighbourhood.

Located a hop, skip, and jump away from multiple bus lines and a short walk from the city centre, Trafalgar’s surroundings provide the perfect stepping stone to independence, inspiration, and empowerment.

Partnerships

It takes a village to raise a child, so we made sure to collect lots of friends along the way!

Trafalgar has maintained long-standing partnerships of all kinds with organizations near and far. The strength and longevity of these bonds have helped us grow, enrich, and reinforce our excellence as a lifestyle-savvy academic institution.

Here at home, we collaborate closely with the Faculty of Education at McGill University as well as the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation, an organization focused on empowering young leaders. With their support, we host guest lecturers and speakers, conduct professional development workshops, and more!

Each summer, Explorations day camp and Debate Camp Canada choose Trafalgar as their home base: two education-centric summer programs that keep our campus alight with learning year-round.

As part of the World School International Forum, we maintain partnerships with “sister” schools in Germany, Italy, and England, giving our girls the chance to develop a taste for adventure while expanding their worldview. We also warmly welcome students from around the world to join our student family every year as part of our International Program.
