About Us

Welcome to


Situated beside the Niagara Escarpment on the shores of Georgian Bay in the heart of apple country with dynamic tourism, Georgian Bay Community School offers an excellent composite educational facility. We combine a rural family-like atmosphere with opportunities usually provided in a much larger school as evidenced by our wide variety of academic, vocational and co-curricular activities. Students attending our school benefit from the philosophy that "it takes a village to raise a child."

GBCS is a JK-12 school with French Immersion.  There are approximately 800 Elementary students and 400 Secondary students who attend the school. 

In Secondary currently, we have four Specialist High Skills Majors in the following sectors: Transportation, Construction, the Environment and Health and Wellness. Additionally, we have an outstanding music program centred on our orchestra, which participates annually in major competitions. We also have vibrant programs in drama and visual arts.

Pursuits, is our integrated four-credit program in outdoor leadership, health and recreational science for College/University destination students. As well, ECO Project, is another integrated four-credit program emphasizing outdoor adventure and environmental studies for College/Work Place destination students.

Our athletic program involves approximately half the student body participating in a wide range of sports and also involves many staff members as coaches. We run teams in almost all sports and regularly send teams to District and CWOSSA.

At Georgian Bay Community School, eight credits can be scheduled in any one year. Our school is a semestered school, with four courses offered from September to January and four courses from February to June. Final examinations are scheduled in January and June for most courses. We have an exceptional number of awards for students of all grades and levels.

There is an active community night school program that utilizes the school extensively.
