Flags Half Mast

Crescent School has lowered its flags to half-mast today in memory of the victims of yesterday’s tragic events on Yonge Street. We extend our deepest sympathies to all those affected by this terrible incident.


Crescent’s Character-In-Action programs provide our boys with authentic opportunities to develop character outside of the classroom.


Crescent’s Business Program provides unique opportunities for our students to hone their business skills while engaging in real-life “character in action” situations where students lead, communicate, employ analytical and critical thinking skills and compete in high-pressure situations.

List of 3 items.

  • Overview

    Our vision is to inspire a passion and excitement for business in our students through the Business Program and graduate amazing students who will have success in university and their careers.

    We will accomplish this through excellence in the classroom and by providing outstanding co-curricular experiences that will differentiate our graduates and provide a foundation for future business success.

    Our Business Program is delivered through two intertwined components: the Business Curriculum and the Crescent School Business Team.
  • Business Curriculum

    Crescent’s Business curriculum aims to inspire a passion for business. We devote a significant amount of time to current events, seeking to further develop student engagement with the world around them and bring textbook theory to life. We offer Economics (Grade 11, 12 and Advanced Placement), Accounting (Grade 11 and 12) and Business Entrepreneurship (Grade 11).
  • Crescent School Business Team

    Our Business Team, encompassing all of the business co-curricular activities, is an extension of our Business courses. It’s the opportunity for students to use their classroom knowledge in real life and competition settings. Our Business Team activities include:

      • The Crescent School Investment Team is a demanding, year-long activity for students in Grades 10 to 12. It is a student-run, real-money investment portfolio. Launched in 2012/2013, the Investment Team now manages approximately $30,000. Team members learn first-hand about stock markets, in particular the TSX 60. Members are responsible for developing the overall portfolio strategy, performing research and valuation analysis, assessing and recommending investments, and presenting to both the Investment Team and our Investment Committee.
      • Business Case Competitions offer serious business students an opportunity to compete with university-level cases in a co-ed environment. Crescent has hosted the Crescent School Invitational Business Case Competition since 2010, with eight independent girls’ and boys’ schools participating.
      • DECA is where many of our students first develop a passion for business, particularly those who get involved in Grade 9 or 10. Over 200,000 high school students worldwide compete in the DECA business competitions. Crescent competes at the regional, provincial and international levels of DECA.
      • Business Team Leadership Program: The Business Team Executive is an excellent training ground in leadership. It offers significant and real leadership opportunities where students are expected to lead, teach, motivate and run all Business Team activities.
      • The Junior Business Club gives Grade 9 and 10 students an introduction to Business Team activities, including investing and stock markets, and DECA.
