Our History

In 1911, Herbert Benson Beal recognized the need for a program of technical education that would reflect the emerging needs of society. The London Industrial School opened its doors in 1912 and began offering both day and night programs. Demand was growing rapidly and in 1918, students began moving to a new school building near Dundas and William Streets. After many additions and increased program demands, it was decided to completely renovate Beal so that it could continue to be a leader in the field of education.

After much re-building, the official opening of "The New Beal" took place in June 1999. Beal now offers approximately 225 courses and 18 Cooperative Education courses.
