Our History Runs Deep

In 1915 a young Englishwoman named Margaret Gascoigne established a small school for six students in the study of her home - the modest but aspiring beginning of what would become known as The Study.

In 1960 The Study moved to its present location in Westmount, one of Montreal's prime residential neighbourhoods.  In addition to its founder, seven dynamic women have led The Study.
