Join our 50th anniversary celebration

New School is celebrating 50 years at Dawson College!

Our unique and passionate community of learners and educators continues to offer an alternative approach to education where students have a say in what and how they learn.

Our anniversary celebration is taking place on Saturday, April 13 from 4 to 7 PM in room 5B.16. at Dawson College.

Please join us!

From 4 to 5PM, meet up with familiar faces, join us for food and drink, along with a host of reunion activities: opportunities to photoshoot in the New School lounge with your friends and past facilitators, to interview for our anniversary video, and to check out our exhibit of New School archives, and more.

At 5pm, our anniversary program begins with a short video about New School over the years, a memorial to Pat, and a variety of special guests including alumni students, facilitators, a short theatre presentation with Laura, and an address from our founder Greta!


We can’t wait to hear from you.
We can’t wait to see you.
We can’t wait for your stories.

As Greta always asks, “And then what happened…?”

Share what New School means to you

To help inspire and guide the next 50 years, New School is launching #BecauseofNewSchool, a campaign to collect testimonials from our incredible students, faculty, and facilitators.
