Boarding Schools Ontario

Boarding school offers distinct advantages over traditional day schooling. The full immersion in academic and social life, away from parents and typical distractions leads boarding graduates to become more independent and self-assured and better prepared for university and careers. Boarding schools have fewer distractions and students push each other to succeed. stay on task. The combination of social and academic spheres means that your child is always in a scholarly environment, so maintaining your focus is easier than it would be elsewhere. Ontario’s boarding schools are renowned for fostering sustained success.

Campus Life

Boarding school gives young people an early introduction to campus life and the independence that comes with it. Students live with one another, helping each other with homework, and rising to challenges together. Boarding school students build lasting friendships. The campus lifestyle develops students' social skills and independence and makes school an enjoyable environment.

Because your son or daughter will live right on campus, he or she will not have to worry about distance-based limitations. As such, your child can get involved in a wide variety of extracurricular activities and programs.

Making the Right Choice

Before choosing a boarding school in Ontario, find out about its reputation. The Ministry of Education could point you in the right direction here. In addition, the Fraser Institute’s annual school rankings (while not perfect) can give you broad insight into a school’s reputation. If you want to send your daughter to a boarding high school in Ontario, be sure that it has the Ministry accreditation which allows it to grant diploma-eligible credits.

You should also consider the variety of Ontario boarding schools, to find the school that meets your child’s unique needs and your personal standards. Questions to consider could include:

  • What is the school’s educational philosophy?
  • Does the school have a specialty (i.e. sports, visual arts)?
  • What is the average class size? How many students are enrolled there? Would your son or daughter do better in a relatively large or small environment?
  • What kind of extracurricular activities are available?
