Principal's Message

Message from the Principal

Welcome and thank you for visiting our website.

Somerset Academy which is located in Markham was established in 1974. It is an independent, non-denominational and co-educational private school that provides education to students in Junior Kindergarten up to and including Grade Eight.

Somerset Academy is a school that establishes a comforting, nurturing and positive environment for your child. By providing an enriched curriculum and a variety of extracurricular activities, we enhance your child’s self-esteem, physical abilities, and we encourage team-building skills. Every child is unique in his or her own way and Somerset is good at finding different ways to reach every child to bring out his/her individuality and potential. When people ask what makes Somerset special, I always say that we are members of a “family” that help guide each other to be the best that we can be no matter how old you are, what academic level you may be at, or how good you are in sports or extracurricular activities.

A Somerset education sets the foundation for a successful future. Our students strive for excellence and our educators do a remarkable job in preparing them. I hope you enjoy your visit to Somerset Academy’s website and I invite you to come in and visit us for your personal tour.
