Parents choose Hudson College because Hudson College believes that a dynamic education sparks a lifelong enthusiasm for learning. Co-founder Jeff Bavington is committed to making Hudson “…a place where students with all different interests can feel as if they’re a part of a unified, larger community…where students themselves can help create the school environment in which they wish to be a part of.”
Hudson College was established in early 2003. One of the school's founders, Jack Bavington, serves as the principal of the High School (Upper School). Prior to his current role, Jack worked as a principal at a large collegiate institute in Scarborough. His son, Jeff Bavington, and also one of the school's founders, serves as the principal of the Elementary School (Lower School).
The building is housed in the Earlscourt Junior Public School, with the building leased from the Toronto District School Board, which also partially leases the part of the school to the Toronto Catholic District School Board, in which the building houses its students from Stella Maris Catholic School.
The sporting amenities at Hudson College include a modern gymnasium and outdoor recreational facilities, including a multi-sport turf field and running track. The school’s sports teams are known as the Hudson Huskies.
Hudson College is part of the Small Schools Athletic Federation (SSAF).
