Our Alumnae


Everyone benefits from being active in the community. It’s what allows us to learn about each other, gain a sense of connection and put our talents and skills to work helping one another. HNMCS is always looking for ways to take part and introduce our students to new experiences beyond the school.

Over the last few years, HNMCS has adopted an innovative project-based interdisciplinary learning approach to better prepare students for the 21st century landscape. It’s working. Our entire 2020 graduating class were Ontario Scholars, all earned university acceptance across Canada and the U.S., and collectively, they received almost $1.2mil in scholarship offers. At a time when few girls choose to enter the in-demand fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, 70% of these graduates are entering STEM post-secondary programmes.
