As the fifth collegiate in Kitchener-Waterloo, Grand River Collegiate (GRCI) was built on Indian Road near the Grand River in Kitchener's eastern area. "Grand River" was chosen in favour of other names like 'Parkwood' or 'Sand Hills', as the name for the new school. GRCI officially opened on September 6, 1966, with about 850 students and 55 teachers.

Grand River Collegiate Institute has had seven principals:

  • Ross L. Shaver (1966 to 1984)
  • Gary A. Boug (1984 to 1995)

  • Agnes Dufournaud (Feb 2008 to Aug 2009)
  • Scott Lomax (Aug 2009 to Jan 2011)
  • Deborah Tyrrell (Feb 2011 to June 2017)
  • Jim Woolley (July 2017 to Oct. 2018)
  • Josh Windsor (Oct. 2018 - Present)


Grand River has athletic groups which include: alpine skiing, archery, badminton, basketball, cross-country, curling, dance, field hockey, football, ice hockey, Nordic skiing, power lifting, rugby, soccer, swimming, tennis, track & field and volleyball. Grand River's sports teams are known as the Renegades (commonly shortened to the "Rens").
