Principal's Message

Lipinski.jpgAt John Taylor Collegiate, our caring and dedicated staff are committed to helping our students reach their goals in a safe and supportive environment, both in and outside of the classroom.  We are proud of our talented, energetic student body and we strive to help each individual find success academically, socially and personally.

To obtain our vision of Raising All Students to Distinction we focus on three pillars of success. Students strive for Academic Excellence through our strong, diverse academic program, which prepares them for entry into university, college or directly into the work force. Our Advanced Placement Program presents a greater academic challenge and allows students to earn university credits while still in high school. Our Compulsory Learning for All philosophy teaches students accountability as an important skill for future success.

All students are given multiple opportunities for Personal Growth and Development through a variety of option courses and extracurricular activities that will help cultivate their interests and develop their leadership skills. We know that the best memories of high school often happen outside the classroom. We also emphasize the development of Social Responsibility. Our students learn that there are people locally and globally who are less fortunate than ourselves, and that their efforts to make a difference truly matter.

Within these pillars, we aspire to teach students to become respectful, responsible, compassionate and critically minded citizens, who are dedicated to being productive, active members of society. We hope to work with all John Taylor families to make high school a positive and rewarding experience for all of our students.

Sharing Piper Pride for over 50 years strong!

Mr. Walt Lipinski
