SHS is an independent day school for boys from JK to Grade 8. Our mission is to inspire and empower each boy through his formative years.

Meet the Advancement Team

The Advancement Office leads fundraising, community relations, communications and marketing for the school. Our team members work closely with parents, Old Boys, alumni families, faculty, staff and other stakeholders on a variety of initiatives. We offer a variety of community-building events for current families as well as programs to keep Old Boys and their families connected to SHS. Every SHS student becomes an Old Boy when he leaves the school. We encourage Old Boys and their families to visit the school and keep connected to SHS.
