Thanks to all who came out for the one last time on Saturday, May 27th, 2017. Over 1400 alumni came to bid adieu to the stately school which shaped our future and prepared us for where we are today.

Alumni walked the halls and reminisced. It was a bittersweet day for all of us who loved Vaughan.

Thanks to all the volunteers, performers and committee members, current staff and students who made the day so memorable. And a special thank-you to the cafeteria team who put on a nice spread and the custodial staff who made the school spiffy clean.

 
As of  June 30, 2017, the doors of Vaughan Road Academy, once known as Vaughan Road Collegiate Institute, will close for good. That's ninety-one years of memories, nine decades of dedication to excellence in academics, fine arts and athletics. Many graduates have gone on to excel in their chosen field, whether in business, the arts, community service, sports, public life or academia.
