Welcome to Galt Collegiate Institute (G.C.I.) –  Home of the Ghosts! As the proud principal of  Galt Collegiate, it is my pleasure to extend a warm and enthusiastic greeting to each and every one of you.

To our current students and families, your commitment to academic excellence, community engagement, and personal growth is truly commendable. We are thrilled to continue this journey with you and build upon the successes of previous years. 

To new students and families, we extend a special welcome to you. We are excited to have you join our school community, and we look forward to getting to know you, supporting your educational goals, and fostering an environment where you can thrive.

At Galt Collegiate, we are committed to providing a safe, inclusive, and dynamic learning environment that nurtures the intellectual, emotional, and social development of every student. Our dedicated team of educators and staff is passionate about creating a positive and enriching experience for all.

Throughout the school year, we will encourage intellectual curiousity, critical thinking and empathy for self and others. We encourage students to explore their interests, challenge themselves, and embrace new opportunities for growth. Our goal is to inspire a love of learning that extends beyond the classroom and prepares students for success in an ever-changing world.

Communication and collaboration are key elements of a successful school community. We encourage open lines of communication between students, parents, teachers, staff and our community. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions, concerns, or ideas to share. Together, we can create a supportive and engaging learning environment that empowers every student to reach their full potential.

In addition to our commitment to learning and growth, Galt Collegiate takes great pride in being an active and integral part of the wider community. We are one of the oldest continuously operating secondary schools in Canada and a cherished historical site in Cambridge, Ontario. We value our partnerships with families and community members and look forward to working together to create positive and meaningful experiences for our students and community.

It is my hope that we will embrace the opportunities for growth, learning, and collaboration that lie ahead. I am confident that, together, we will make this academic year a memorable and meaningful one.

Thank you for entrusting us with the education and well-being of your children. Here’s to an exciting school year filled with achievement, joy, and positive connections.
