To retain linkages and build new relationships with fellow Alumni in Toronto and abroad and to materially enhance the educational experience of students attending our Alma Mater.


The Tutorial High Alumni Association (Toronto Chapter) came into being in 1990 in response to the need for Tutorialites in and around Toronto to get together primarily for the purpose of hosting the 1993 High School Reunion in our city.

Our founding members were Llewie Armstrong, Linda Abrahams, Lollette Caesar, Cedric Licorish, Muti Mabayeke, Joan McLean, George McLean, Aubrey Neil, Al Rodwell-Simon and the late Edward Rogers. Our goal as an organization is to help, as far as possible, to keep alive the name and tradition of our Alma Mater.

Tutorial High School was founded in 1939 by the non-commercial minded Austin Cosmo Castello (Tookie), a seasoned educator and visionary who was acutely aware of the need for a more accessible means of providing secondary education to the children of poorer families.

True to the conviction of its founder Tutorial High catered to the need of the working class by keeping school fees as low as possible and offered academic and athletic scholarships to qualified students, while at the same time maintaining high academic standards.

The energy generated by the 1993 Reunion was the catalyst which resulted in the formation of our Chapter which was incorporated in March of 1993. Our aims and objectives are as follows:

  • To provide a resource in Toronto for former students and teachers of Tutorial High School.

  • To provide a forum for discussion and action regarding ways and means of promoting the best interest of Tutorial High School.

  • To promote educational and recreational activities for the benefit and enjoyment of all members of the association, their spouses, family and friends.

  • To interface with support and promote other Tutorial High Alumni Chapters.

Our Alumni recognize our responsibility to play a part in re-energizing this once proud, productive and noble institution. We stand committed to working with all other Chapters to achieve this end
