NTCI ALUMNI MAKE THE NEWS

Emily D’Angelo (‘12), has been nominated for a Juno Award in the Best Classical Album Award (Solo) category for her album “enargeia.” Although Emily played cello at NT, she pursued vocal music at university (also applying for the life sciences programs). Emily was featured in our 2016 Maytime Melodies concert as one of the soloists in Mozart’s Requiem.


There are a number of people who graced the halls of North Toronto, but never graduated from them. Farley Mowat and Keanu Reeves come to mind. And now, Michael Hoecht, who attended NT in the 2013-14 academic year.

Girls Field Hockey Has Near Perfect Record As NTCI Slowly Returns To Normal Life

After 18 months of the pandemic, which offered very little in the way of normal life for high school students, North Toronto is finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. With a return to some extra-curricular activities, clubs and sports, the school is certainly buzzing, albeit more quietly than usual, and NT students are getting back to the things they love.

In athletics, the girls field hockey team was back in action, with practices almost daily and a near perfect record in their games. Intramurals featured prominently as well, allowing students to play competitively amongst classmates in soccer and ultimate frisbee. The winter intramural season is starting up, with volleyball and badminton beginning in early December.

NTCI Foundation Board Re-Elects Directors For Two-Year Period

The North Toronto Collegiate Institute Foundation has been operating in one form or another since 1972. 

It started as a Project Fund and was revised in 1987 to become the NTCI Foundation following the seventy-fifth anniversary celebrations for the school.

The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Advisory Board made up of alumni, the school’s Principal, and two student representatives in their graduating year. The student reps are appointed by the Principal and provide valuable input on what is going on in the school and what matters to students. Three former student reps have been elected as full directors following their graduation. Two of those grads were key promoters of the first, successful Speakers Series event that was held in September.
