The Our Kids guide to private Christian schools in Canada

  Looking for a Christian private school? Consider Northmount School, an independent Catholic elementary school for boys in Toronto.



On this page, we cover private Christian schools in Canada.

For a discussion of faith-based education in general, including a detailed discussion of types of schools and curricula, check out our guide to religious-affiliated schools.



Quick summary:

  • Some Christian schools are associated with a specific Christian denomination, such as Catholicism or Protestantism. Others are non-denominational. Most schools, though, don’t require their students to be practicing Christians.

  • Christian schools have a dual-track curriculum: they teach both secular and religious subjects. While these schools tend to be very strong in secular academics, they also offer intensive religious studies courses, which teach different Christian values.

  • Christian schools have numerous benefits. For instance, they provide students with a strong religious education, dedicated teachers who provide specialized instruction, a community of like-minded peers, and an opportunity to forge their religious identity.

  • Schools have different approaches, policies, cultures, and developmental aims. You should explore any prospective school closely, to determine whether it’s the right fit for your child and family.

  • We list private Christian schools on this site. Moreover, our parent discussion forum allows you to discuss options and get answers to your questions.






There are lots of private Christian schools in Canada. For instance, there are Christian schools in Toronto, Ontario, Edmonton, and Calgary. These schools vary in terms of their religious curriculum, extracurriculars, and approach to Christian study and Bible study. The schools below reflect this diversity. You can filter them for a wide range of features.
