Why Neill-Wycik?

The name Neill-Wycik, as the hyphen indicates, is inspired by two different sources: Alexander Sutherland Neill, who was the founder of Sumerhill, one of the world’s most successful free schools, and Mr. and Mrs. Wycik, who served Ryerson students at Oakham House for more than 25 years.

What do we value?

Neill-Wycik is reliant on membership participation. The co-operative model developed by the founders is as important to the success of the building as the members are to continuing its legacy.
