History:

Havergal was founded in 1894 as a Church of England Ladies' College. Havergal was the sister school of Ridley College for the first several decades of the schools' history.

In 1894, a school for girls at 350 Jarvis Street was about to close its doors. A group of men led by The Honourable H. Blake established an organization for taking over the building and performing it as the home of what became Havergal College. The crowd of men who founded Havergal College had grand faith in Canada's future and desired to provide a sound academic education for their daughters.

Now Havergal features a stimulating and supportive learning environment, alongside a strong community that fosters self-confidence, leadership and teamwork.
