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


Through Crescent School’s Outreach Program, our boys have many opportunities to participate in outreach activities at the local, national and international level. They gain a broader understanding of the world, a greater awareness of the impact of their choices, and deeper empathy.

  • Local Outreach

    In every grade, Crescent boys are actively involved in Outreach programs that are close to home. Integrated into our class schedules, these programs are designed to reflect Crescent’s core values: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Compassion.
    Here are some of our local Outreach programs:
    • Willow Park Art Program - helping Willow Park students build their confidence and self-esteem, through creative arts projects
    • Highview Public School Science Program – helping Grade 4 & 5 students with their understanding and appreciation for science.
    • Teddington Senior’s Residence Art Workshops – building relationships and a bridge between the generations
    • Right to Play – learning social and leadership skills through play-based games
    • Other initiatives include building relationships with children with disabilities at Bloorview School Authority, collaborating with children with physical, social and cognitive disabilities to design accessible toys and art equipment at Sunny View Public School
  • National Outreach

    Crescent School has embarked on a new initiative which allows students to meet, interact and learn from a group of students in Superior North, a First Nations community in northern Ontario. Activities include fundraising to enhance the educational support for the classroom, interaction through video conferencing and other forms of technology, and a national outreach trip to visit Superior North.
  • International Outreach

    Crescent’s International Outreach program provides our students with hands-on service learning opportunities combined with life altering cultural immersion experiences. Service learning is a form of experiential education where learning occurs through a cycle of action and reflection, as students seek to achieve real objectives which the host community has identified, gain a deeper understanding and set of skills for themselves, and leave that community better than they found it.
    Our International Outreach program helps boys develop a strong understanding of the connections between local actions and global consequences. We encourage our boys to learn about, care for, and contribute to society - to be "global citizens" with a social conscience.

    International destinations in 2017/2018 include India, South Africa, Tanzania and Ecuador. For more details on these trips, download the Outreach Trip Brochure found under 'Resources'.
