Description About Runnymede Collegiate Institute

Welcome to Runnymede Collegiate Institute

Runnymede Collegiate Institute (known as Runnymede CI, RCI, or Runnymede) first opened in 1927 and is operated by the Toronto District School Board. Prior to 1998, the school was part of the Board of Education for the City of York. 

History:

The school was built on land, which had belonged to John Scarlett. His is estate was called “Runnymede” after the field of Runnymede, where King John of England signed the Magna Carta. The school's colours, red and white, derive partly from Scarlett's name, and also from the fact that the school opened in the year of Canada's Diamond Jubilee. Runnymede Collegiate Institute celebrated its 90th anniversary on Saturday, May 6, 2017.

Principal: Paul Edwards

Mission:

Academic excellence and enthusiastic student involvement have been traditional at Runnymede for over 90 years. With a student population of around 600, Runnymede is an ideal size for each student to be recognized on individual merits and as an active participant in Runnymede Collegiate Institute community. This feeling of “belonging” is strengthened by involvement in the full range of school activities available to interested students.
