Our high school programme is based upon clearly defined goals within a structured environment. Emphasis is placed on the compulsory core credits at the applied level, in preparation for admission to post secondary college programmes. We stress the personal and academic growth of students in an environment that offers personal attention and small class sizes. All courses are offered in a full-year, non-semestered format to allow for continual learning throughout the entire academic session.

Guidance Services are available to TSS students to assist them in developing appropriate educational plans and career alternatives. Students are consulted on a regular basis by counselors and are encouraged to use the service as they feel necessary.
Students at TSS are encouraged to participate in the extracurricular programme. Students are offered a variety of activities which may not necessarily be covered in the regular academic curriculum.

Participation in athletics is a valuable component of high school life. Through the Mentor College athletic programme TSS students participate in both the local (ROPSSAA) and provincial (OFSAA) sports associations.
More information about athletics at TSS/Mentor College High School is available here.
Drama is one of the courses taught at TSS and TSS/Mentor College puts on three major productions during the school year. In the first term, there is a high school musical, and in the second term, the school participates in the Sears Drama Festival, which features student-run productions. In the spring, the school puts on a major drama production.
Students with musical aptitude or interest are welcome to join vocal groups, ensembles, concert band, and jazz band - all of which perform in the May Music Festival at the Mentor College Main Campus. In addition, opportunities also exist for students to get involved with the school musical as members of the pit band. Please note that music is not one of the course credits currently offered at TSS.
