Harbord Collegiate Institute


Our mission is to provide students with an environment that offers a variety of learning experiences in an academically engaging setting… Harbord students will develop awareness of social justice, equity and environmental issues and the skills to effect positive change as leading citizens in their communities. – Harbord’s Mission

Because of their close proximity to the U of T Faculty of Law, school size, and student demographics, Central Technical School and Harbord Collegiate Institute were chosen as LAWS’ first partner high schools.  LAWS first academic year began in September 2006. A Pan-Grade 10 model pilot was launched at Harbord Collegiate. Comprehensive research conducted by the TDSB from that first September enabled the program to evaluate the strengths of the Pan-Grade 10 model compared to the LAWS Core Program launched in Central Tech. Based on strong evidence that the three year cohort model provided significantly more benefits to students, Harbord moved to that model in 2008.  LAWS’ first Harbord graduation ceremony took place at the U of T Faculty of Law in 2011.
