Principal's Message

Welcome to E.L. Crossley Secondary School!  We are school with a proud tradition of excelling in Academics, the Arts, Athletics and Technology. We offer our students a complete range of courses at the Academic and Applied levels in Grades 9 and 10, and at the University and College levels for Grade 11 and 12 students.  E.L. Crossley is also home to three “Specialist High Skills Major” (SHSM) programs in Business, Energy, and Health and Wellness.  (For further information about any of these programs, check out the Specialist High Skills Major box on our home page.)

Situated in the heart of Fonthill, E.L. Crossley is proud to be a community school; we are a school filled with incredible spirit and a true sense of family and community citizenship. Daily life at Crossley is characterized by energy, enthusiasm and involvement by the staff and student body because each one of us understands that a true educational experience is enhanced through participation in the culture of a school. To this end, we support our students through the offering of an abundance of clubs, teams and activities; just check out the tabs for the Arts, Athletics and Clubs on our web-page!

The staff at E.L. Crossley are very enthusiastic and dedicated in their commitment to help support the learning needs of their students, and in ensuring their future success. Our teachers continually strive to make E.L. Crossley the ideal learning environment for our students. Inside the classrooms, our instructional environments are filled with technology such as interactive whiteboards, mobile computer labs, tablets, SMARTBoards, iPads and computers to engage our students and prepare them for their post-secondary destinations, whether continuing their education or entering the workplace.  

I invite you to browse our website and get a glimpse of the wonderful activities and learning that occur in our school on a daily basis. As an active and vibrant school, we are proud of the accomplishments of our students in the classroom, on the sports field and in our community. As parents and community members, I invite you to walk through the doors of our school at any time. The staff and students in our building have truly made E.L. Crossley their home and they are proud to show it off.  It gives me great pride to say that I am the Principal of this wonderful school and I am very excited to be a part of E.L. Crossley's caring community.
