Founded in 1829 by then-Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, Major-General Sir John Colborne (later Lord Seaton), in the hopes that it would serve as a "feeder school" to the newly established King's College (later the University of Toronto), UCC was modelled on the great public schools of Britain, most notably Eton. Upper Canada College (UCC located in Toronto, Ontario, has a storied history beginning with its founding in 1829. The Lieutenant Governor of Ontario is the vice-regal representative of the Queen of Canada in the province of Ontario. The Province of Upper Canada (French Province du Haut-Canada) was a British colony located in what is now the southern portion of the Province of Ontario Field Marshal John Colborne 1st Baron Seaton, GCB, GCMG, GCH, ( February 16, 1778 &ndash April 17, 1863 This article is about the University of Toronto's St George Campus Eton College, or just Eton, is a world-famous British Independent school for boys founded in 1440 by King Henry VI.  The school began teaching in the original Royal Grammar School, however, within a year was established on its own campus at the corner of King and Simcoe Streets, to which Colborne brought Cambridge and Oxford educated men from the United Kingdom, attracting them with high salaries. The University of Cambridge (often Cambridge University) located in Cambridge, England, is the second-oldest university in the The University of Oxford (informally "Oxford University" or simply "Oxford" located in the city of Oxford, Oxfordshire, England is the  Still, despite ever increasing enrolment, popularity with leading families of the day, both from the local Family Compact and from abroad, and praise from many, including Charles Dickens, UCC was faced with closure on a number of occasions, threatened either by opponents to elitism, withdrawal of funding by the provincial government that once administered it, or by having no building in which to operate. This article is about a group in nineteenth century Canadian history 
The school survived its denigrators, but after the government of Ontario stopped funding it in 1891, thus making UCC a completely independent school, the College was forced to move to its present location in Deer Park, which was then a rural area. For the film of this title see Private School (film. Private schools, or Independent schools are Schools not administered Deer Park is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, centred on the intersection of Yonge Street and St Rural areas can be large and isolated (also referred to as "the country" and/or "the countryside over the course of time The College thrived at this new location, both physically and culturally, as the buildings were expanded and bright instructors attracted. Central to this development was principal William Grant, who appointed a group of teachers described as "eccentric, crotchety, quaint, though widely travelled and highly intelligent," and who saw the student enrollment and teacher salaries double, bursaries grow, and a pension plan established.  UCC expanded to take in lower year students with the construction of a separate primary school building, the Prep, in 1902, allowing for boys to be enrolled from grade three through to graduation. In the United States third grade (called grade 3 in some regions is a year of Primary education.
UCC maintained a Cadet Corps from around 1837, becoming the only student corps called to duty in Canadian military history when it assisted in staving off the Fenian Raids in 1866. The Fenian raids were attacks by members of the Fenian Brotherhood based in the United States, on British army forts customs posts and other targets in  Through the two World Wars, a number of UCC graduates gave their lives and provided leadership. Historian Jack Granatstein, in his book The Generals, demonstrated that UCC graduates also accounted for more than 30% of Canadian generals during the Second World War; in total, 26 Old Boys achieved brigadier rank or higher in World War II.

UCC faced a major crisis when, in 1958, it was discovered that the main building was in serious disrepair, due to poor construction during previous renovations, and was in danger of collapse. Year 1958 ( MCMLVIII) was a Common year starting on Wednesday (link will display full calendar of the Gregorian calendar. A massive fundraising campaign was started within the year, and, with the assistance of Prince Philip, all the necessary $3,200,000 was raised from Old Boys and friends of the College; Ted Rogers, Sr.'s contribution paid for the clock tower. For other uses see Edward Rogers (disambiguation. Edward Samuel "Ted" Rogers ( June 21, 1900 &ndash May 6 Construction of the present building began in early 1959, and it was opened by Governor General Vincent Massey near the end of 1960. The Governor General of Canada ( French: Gouverneure générale du Canada, or: Gouverneur général du Canada) is the vice-regal representative Charles Vincent Massey PC CC CH CD FRSC ( February 20, 1887 – December 30, The crisis forced the school government to rethink their stance on foresight and planning, leading to a years-long program of new construction, salary improvements, and funding sources; as of 1958, despite benefactors, UCC had no endowment. 
In teamwork with principal Rev. Sowby, whom he had helped select, Massey had further influence on the College, bringing about somewhat of a renaissance for the school. The Renaissance (from French Renaissance, meaning "rebirth" Italian: Rinascimento, from re- "again" and nascere A number of distinguished visitors made themselves present, and leading minds were brought on as masters.  At this time the curriculum began to shift from a classical education into a liberal arts one; options besides Latin were first offered after 1950. The term liberal arts refers to a particular type of educational Curriculum broadly defined as a Classical education. Latin ( lingua Latīna, laˈtiːna is an Italic language, historically spoken in Latium and Ancient Rome. 
Into the 1960s a decade of rapid change began; UCC, as an establishment institution, was in "cultural shock" over the societal changes that were taking place across the Western world; individual freedoms trumped institutional discipline and moral authority had lost its clout. The 1960s decade refers to the years from the beginning of 1960 to the end of 1969 The term Western world, the West or the Occident ( Latin: occidens -sunset -west as distinct from the Orient) can have multiple meanings  The cadet corps, seen as outdated and unnecessary, was disbanded in 1976, and the uniform requirements were relaxed, with long hair becoming the norm for boys. However, under principals educated at Oxford (Johnson) and Cambridge (Sadlier), the College pointedly refused to adopt the new provincial educational standards issued in 1967, which it considered lower than the old standards. The University of Oxford (informally "Oxford University" or simply "Oxford" located in the city of Oxford, Oxfordshire, England is the The University of Cambridge (often Cambridge University) located in Cambridge, England, is the second-oldest university in the  UCC also moved forward with new educational and athletic facilities across the campus, while opening the campus to the community at the same time.  By the 1990s summer camps were set up on the campus for any child who wished to enroll. Summer camp is a supervised Program for Children and/or Teenagers conducted (usually during the Summer Months in some countries

Early into the new millennium, UCC also followed the trends in environmentalism when the Board of Governors unanimously voted to establish the Green School initiative in 2002, wherein environmental education would become "one of the four hallmarks of a UCC education. Environmentalism is a broad philosophy and Social movement centered on a concern for the conservation and improvement of the environment. " Plans to carry this out saw not only upgrades of the school's physical plant to meet environmentally sustainable standards, but also an integration of these new initiatives into the curriculum. Physical plant or mechanical plant (and where context is given often just plant) refers to the necessary Infrastructure used in support and maintenance Sustainability, in a general sense is the capacity to maintain a certain process or state indefinitely 
Though Upper Canada College has accepted ethnic minorities since the first black student enrolled in 1831, these students' representation was fewer than expected from the population.

Peter Charles Newman, CC, CD, MComm, LLD (born May 10 1929) is a Canadian Journalist. PLEASE TAKE NOTE************ " According to school historian Richard Howard, UCC transformed its culture during the 1970s, as it began to offer assistance to the less affluent, and made attempts to attract boys from visible minorities, becoming what he called "a small United Nations" that echoed Toronto's emerging ethnic variety (today, students from over 16 different countries attend UCC), though, as recently as 1990, there was references in College Times editorials to anti-semitism and sexism. Antisemitism (alternatively spelled anti-semitism or anti-Semitism; also rarely known as judeophobia) is the Prejudice against or hostility  These aspects of College life came to light through James T. Fitzgerald's book Old Boys, in 1994, which published old boys' recollections of the school. The school took the criticisms seriously, hiring one of its critics to help open UCC to the broader community. 
The first was Clark Winton Noble, who admitted, while under trial for an assault against a student at Appleby College in 1998, to an earlier advance on a UCC student in 1971. Upper Canada College (UCC located in Toronto, Ontario, has a storied history beginning with its founding in 1829.

Five years later, eighteen students sued UCC in a very public case, claiming sexual abuse by Doug Brown, who taught at the Prep from 1975 to 1993. Sexual abuse, also referred to as molestation, is the forcing of undesired sexual acts by one person upon another He was eventually found guilty in 2004 of nine counts of indecent assault, and was sentenced to three years in jail. Indecent assault is a form of Sex crime in many Jurisdictions Indecent assault is defined by UK Law as any unwanted sexual behaviour or touching That same year, Ashley Chivers, a teaching assistant at UCC from 1996 to 2003, was charged with possession of child pornography, none of which featured UCC students. Child pornography refers to material depicting Children being in a state of undress engaged in erotic poses or sexual activity  He was convicted of one count and was given an 18-month conditional sentence. In Grammar, conditional sentences are sentences discussing factual implications or hypothetical situations and their consequences 
After himself being charged with sexual abuse of a minor, former student Douglas Mackenzie launched various suits against the school in 2004. Upon learning he was one of those accused, former teacher Herbert Sommerfeld surrendered to Toronto police in December, 2005.  He was eventually acquitted due to what the judge called "vague and inconsistent" testimony by the plaintiff. In Criminal law, an acquittal is a verdict of not guilty, or some similar end of the proceeding that terminates it with prejudice without a verdict  Lorne Cook, a teacher at UCC between 1978 and 1994, was also named by Douglas and four others in a class action suit. He was found guilty of one count of indecent assault and one of sexual interference. In November, 2006, he was sentenced to house arrest. 
In response to the allegations put forward, in 2001 UCC formed a review team to assess school policies, and create new ones, under the direction of Sydney Robins, QC, a former Justice of the Ontario Court of Appeal, and author of Protecting Our Students: A Review to Identify and Prevent Sexual Misconduct in Ontario Schools. Queen's Counsel ( postnominal QC) &ndash known as King's Counsel ( KC) during the reign of a male sovereign  &ndash are The Court of Appeal for Ontario (frequently referred to as Ontario Court of Appeal or OCA) is headquartered in Downtown Toronto, in historic  Robins tabled his report in May of 2003, with an emphasis on identifying and preventing misconduct before it occurs.  In early 2007, the school, in a letter to the entire UCC community, apologized for the sexual and physical abuse that occurred, calling the affairs the most difficult issue the school has faced in its 177-year history.

Norval is a community in the town of Halton Hills, Ontario, Canada.

The acre is a unit of Area in a number of different systems including the imperial and U Explanation The hectare is commonly used in most countries around the world especially in domains concerned with land planning and management such as Agriculture, The Credit River is a River in southern Ontario which flows from headwaters above the Niagara Escarpment to empty into 
By the early 20th century, the city of Toronto was already growing quickly around the College's Deer Park campus, causing the trustees to begin an exploration into the possibility of once again moving the school. The twentieth century of the Common Era began on The present Norval property, north of the city, was purchased in 1913, and plans for a new college building were even drawn up by a Toronto architectural firm. Year 1913 ( MCMXIII) was a Common year starting on Wednesday (link will display the full calendar of the Gregorian calendar (or a Common However, due to the First World War and the depression, plans to move the school were abandoned in the 1930s.

Still, the property remained in the hands of the school, and it was developed into an outdoor education centre for UCC students and community. Beginning in 1913, an annual picnic was held at Norval, this first being catered by the King Edward Hotel. The King Edward Hotel in Toronto, Canada is part of the Le Méridien chain of hotels As it was originally land cleared for agricultural uses, much of the site was open field. However, since the 1940s over 700,000 seedlings were planted by staff and students.

Norval's main focus of management is toward improved diversity of forest cover and the related protection of wildlife and the Credit River watershed, aiding the school's primary function of providing outdoor learning programs to students; other Ontario schools use the property and its facilities during the weeks when UCC students are not in residence. Throughout the school year, entire classes, houses, or portions of certain grades will have a several day stay at Norval, where they will learn about a range of topics including environmental systems, sustainability, archeology, plant types, river study, and survival, in addition to participating in trust building exercises, meditation, and athletic games.

Into the 2000s, the school came under criticism for keeping the entirety of the increasingly taxed Norval property, while so little of it was actually used; this argument is gained increased credence in light of the consistent yearly tuition hikes, and mounting legal costs. Despite the fact that the school repeatedly stated that it had no intention of selling the property, citing not only rapidly increasing land value, but also an intention to hold it in order to prevent industrial development of the property, which contains a variety of wildlife, including spotted deer and hares, UCC sold a small portion of the land in 2007 to help cover legal costs.
