    Institution Description
    Founded in 1829, Upper Canada College (UCC) was one of the first institutions for secondary education in the province of Ontario. The intention was that UCC would serve as a feeder school for the newly founded King’s College (later the University of Toronto). UCC was modeled after the great public schools of Britain, most notably Eton College. To this day, UCC maintains a link to the Royal Family through Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh. He acts as a Special Visitor and is also a member of our Board of Governors.
    During its first year of operation, 1830–31, UCC admitted 140 pupils and employed a principal and eight masters (teachers). Today, the College has about 1,100 students, more than 110 teachers and 125 staff.
