Welcome Message

Head of SchoolWelcome to Holy Name of Mary College School. I am excited to showcase a school distinguished by excellence that invigorates the student experience and celebrates the uniqueness of each individual while inspiring confidence, creative thinking and spiritual growth.

Our curriculum is tailored for girls, who are given every opportunity to develop and stand out. It is through an enriched learning landscape that we foster a culture of exploration and intellectual risk-taking that empowers, challenges and supports leadership to further personal growth. We place emphasis on cultivating young women leaders and role models who will excel in university and ultimately go on to assume leadership positions in their future careers.

I invite you to take a closer look at the distinctiveness of our learning community where girls take centre stage and are inspired to reach for the stars.

Marilena Tesoro, Head of School

It has been a pleasure to watch our daughter grow as an independent learner at HNMCS. She has accepted challenges that have been presented to her through her dedicated teachers and has shown great personal development from them.

One of the best things I see about HNMCS is that the girls "work hard" - but they also "play hard". For as much work as they are putting into all the assignments, tests, projects, etc...they are having a great deal of fun and I think it's a great balance!

HNMCS provides a uniquely nurturing and challenging environment. In these times of tough academic competition we believe our daughter will not only follow the path she chooses but be ready to excel in a post secondary program. Her HNMCS years have been truly formative. HNMCS is a one of a kind school.

Engaging, fun, compassionate and interesting teachers, along with administrators and office staff who ensure the school's values are at the core of all that goes on, sets HNMCS apart from the rest. Both our daughters feel privileged to be part of this wonderful environment.

This is a Catholic school with the right focus on values. The reason this school is so special has a lot to do with that. It's warm, welcoming and doesn't compromise its beliefs.
