Meet the Team

Head of School Welcome

Dear Parent,
I am excited to welcome you to the Canadian School of Florence. Our Tuscan backdrop contributes to rich and diverse academic experiences with lessons spilling into the breathtaking Florentine Hills and the historic city of Florence.  
Since its foundation in 2017, our Senior School has evolved into a prestigious academic institution that focuses on preparing students for postsecondary education anywhere in the world. Our Junior School, which opened in September 2021, has been accredited by the Italian Ministry of Education with Paritaria status. Additionally, in September 2022, we "closed the gap" to offer our high quality education to a complete range of students from the ages of 3 to 18 years, by opening our Middle School, which too boasts the title of Paritaria status. Our talented, specialised, and highly qualified faculty provide the internationally recognised curriculum from The Ministry of Education of Ontario, Canada. 
It is an important time in the world of education. At all of our campuses, 21st century skills and innovation serve as the foundation of all lessons. We integrate STEM project-based learning which encourages our students to become skillful problem solvers while developing their creative and critical thinking in order to help them become global citizens.

We invite you to join our community and watch your child develop their full potential to shape the world thanks to our student-centered pedagogical approach. We encourage you and your child to visit the school and discover all that CSF has to offer. Make an appointment with our Admissions Office today.
