Woodbridge College

Located on Bruce Street in Woodbridge, this school was originally named Woodbridge High School when established in 1958.  It was renamed Woodbridge College in 1991 when it transformed into an alternative school for students from seventh grade and up.  Approximately 500 students are enrolled in the school.  In 2015, a French immersion program was added alongside its English-speaking curriculum.  Nearby Vaughan Secondary School had already  been offering this program, thus its boundary was altered to allow for the two schools to provide the program without conflict.  Woodbridge College has a wyvern for its mascot.  The FIRST Robotics Competition team which represents the school is thus named Wyvern Robotics.

Toronto District Christian High School

This secondary school is situated on Woodbridge Avenue in the Woodbridge area of Vaughan, Ontario.  The school was founded in 1960, based on the strength of support for the Christian school movement at the elementary level, now ready to develop at the secondary school level.  The first classes began in 1963, taught inside the Second Christian Reformed Church of Toronto.  In 1964, a campaign raised $30,000 to purchased fifteen acres of land in Woodbridge, Ontario, on which the new school building would be constructed.  A separate fundraising campaign collected $115,000 towards the construction cost of $150,000 required for the building.  In 1965 the new school building opened, including a gymnasium and eight classrooms.  Four additional classrooms were added in 1970.  In 1974 a library, art room, staff room and commons area were built, as were more classrooms and washrooms.  In 1986, further construction prepared the school to be able to offer computer classes, home economics, music and industrial shop classes.  Offices for guidance counselling were also included in this expansion.  In the year 2000, a major renovation took place, with heating and lighting systems, insulation, windows and roof being replaced.  In 2001, additional classroom space was added, as were a performance centre and information technology department.  In order to accommodate these new facilities, much of the original building was demolished.  In 2002 the gym received a new floor.  In 2003, the performance centre and gym were expanded while a fitness centre and new computer workstations were also added to the facility.  In 2004 the parking lot expansion began onto an adjacent piece of property.  In 2005 the mortgage as paid off and mortgage papers ceremoniously burned.
