We call them houses, but we’re sure they’ll become your home.

The lifelong friendships built at BCS are at the core of every student’s experience and our welcoming residences make it all possible. BCS has 10 houses, each with their own unique culture and traditions. Throughout the year, our residence teams bring the house together by organizing birthday celebrations, brunches, barbecues, creative workshops, video game tournaments, pick-up street hockey and basketball games, movie nights, cook-offs, and so much more! Special events are also organized throughout the year to inspire house pride as students don their house colours in friendly competition including Carnival and our Inter-House Track and Field event.

What's a Day House?

Day students are part of Ross Boys and Ross Girls. They are not "Houses" in the typical sense, but they do come together every day to attend our morning assembly, known as Chapel. Ross students participate in all inter-house competitions and go out for dinners throughout the year. They have their own locker area in the Student Centre, which also serves as a convenient place to wait for parents at the end of the day.
