Upper Canada College experienced another successful year, as its boys excelled in the classroom, community initiatives and other extra- and co-curricular activities. The inspiring accomplishments of students, led by top-notch teachers and supported by the school’s hard-working staff, enabled UCC to continue to attract large numbers of potential students and maintain its leadership role as one of the most respected independent boys’ schools in North America.

But it’s more than the people who spend each weekday at UCC who contribute to its achievements. Numerous parents and Old Boys freely give of their time in volunteer roles, while also impacting the bottom line with generous gifts to maintain and improve the school’s operations and facilities, as well as: needs-based scholarships; boarding; and academic, arts, athletic and community service programs.

Generosity knew no bounds, as UCC donors committed $11.6 million in the 2010–11 fiscal year, an increase of $1.6 million over the same period 12 months earlier. These generous contributions raised the UCC endowment by almost $9 million to $55.6 million and will help ensure that the College stays at the head of the pack and continues to offer the best educational opportunities possible for its boys.
