“I refer my clients to OurKids.net all the time. It's a practical resource for parents to examine and analyze their choices.”
—Judy Winberg, M.Ed., Canadian educational consultant


Ontario is home to some of the oldest and most storied boarding schools in Canada, as well as some of the newest. Prince Andrew boarded here, as did Filipe VI, the current King of Spain. They join a long list of prominent Canadians whose contributions in public and private life began with a boarding school education.

While there are many excellent schools located within the provinces’ major cities, there are equally excellent boarding schools found throughout the province. Those within urban centres have the benefit of a proximity to a greater range of cultural and educational institutions; those located elsewhere offer other opportunities, including a strong sense of community, a more personal approach, and robust programs of outdoor education.

On this page we cover boarding schools in the province of Ontario. For a complete guide to boarding in Canada, including information about admissions, please see our introductory guide.

      Our boarding school guide has advice specific to finding boarding schools in Canada. For insights that are more general (on how to evaluate school options) we recommend you review our hub on choosing a school.

      Private school expos

      Private school expos are ideal launching pads for your school-finding journey. All expos are held in the fall at a number of centres across Canada. There are three expos hosted in Ontario, one in Toronto, one in Halton-Peel, and one in Ottawa. Expos are also held each fall in Vancouver, Montreal, and Calgary. All are opportunities to speak with administrators from leading boarding schools within the regions in which the expos are held.

      Parent discussion forum

      Word-of-mouth is another powerful tool in your school-finding arsenal. The Our Kids private school discussion forum allows you to discuss your options and debate topics around gifted education. You can use our community of parents, educational experts, alumni, and schools to help answer your questions and stimulate your thinking.

      Upcoming open house events

      Attending open houses is obviously a great way to learn more about a school and get a feel for the environment. For some advice on open house visits, go here. For questions to ask that are specific to boarding programs, refer to our main boarding school hub.





      Broadly speaking, the cost of boarding reflects the cost private school tuition in general, though with premiums added to cover housing and meals.

      Many schools offer financial aid, including scholarships and bursaries. Financial aid is needs-based, and financial aid programs are created as a means of broadening the student base and attracting students, independent of means, who will contribute most to the culture of the school. Generally speaking, the larger and more expensive schools provide the most aid.

      You can read more about financial aid and scholarships in our dedicated guide.

      The Ontario Ministry of Education legally requires all private schools in the province to register and provide annual statistical reports, and they must register yearly with the province in order to be accredited. While private schools in Ontario are considered businesses or non-profit organizations, the ministry inspects all private secondary schools in order to authorize them to award credits toward completion of the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

      High school graduation requirements are set by the Ontario Ministry of Education, not the federal government. To earn a high school graduation diploma in Ontario students are required to complete at least 30 credits in grades 9 through 12. A credit represents the completion of an entire course, not a portion of it.

      The provincial ministry requires that all students complete 18 mandatory credits which represent the core of the high school curriculum: English, math, science, history, geography, arts, health and physical education, French, career studies, and civics.

      The remaining 12 credits are subject to students’ discretion and chosen from a list of recognized courses. These include technology and computer studies, graphic and performing arts, world studies, international languages, social studies, and cooperative education. These discretionary credits allow students to design a course of study that reflects their interests and to prepare for their post-secondary career.

      In addition to course work, students are required to complete 40 hours of volunteer community service activities over the course of their four-year high school career.

      Many boarding schools impose their own graduation requirements in addition to those outlined by the province. At Columbia International College, for example, students must complete 36 credits in order to graduate. At Appleby College, students are required to study at least one international language, that is, a language other than French and English, the two official languages of Canada. Many private schools also choose to exceed the provincial service requirement, over and above the hours of volunteer service than mandated by the provincial board.
