Boarding Life & our Residential Life Curriculum
Built in the 1960s, Sifton House was the last Upper School boarding residence to be added to St. Andrew's College, and initially served as the infirmary and cafeteria for the School. As the demand for boarding grew, the building was converted into Fourth House in 1962 as the last of the original Upper School houses (the first three being Flavelle, Memorial, and Ramsey, the original house for day boys).
In 1984, the Housemaster's (now Head of House) residence was added (previously, he and his family lived in a set of residence rooms), and Fourth House was renamed Sifton House to honour the Sifton family's many contributions to the School.
Today, Sifton House is home to 60 Upper School students (Grades 9-12), a Head of House with their family, and two Assistant Heads of House. Sifton has more than 30 rooms, an air-conditioned common room with a ping pong table, a pool table, and a full kitchen. Sifton is home to students from across Canada and around the world.
