Kingston is known for its academically rigorous private schools. Students from private schools in Kingston regularly perform at a very high level in post-secondary education.



Kingston private schools typically score very well on the Fraser Institute's school rankings. While these rankings have flaws, they offer a good glimpse into the general quality of education in a given region.

Advantages of Going Independent

If you send your child to a private school, you will have a stronger voice in his or her education, as a high level of communication between teachers and parents is common. The advantage of this relationship goes both ways. Instructors spend a lot of time with your child, so they might see patterns in him or her that you may not see at home. These observations could help you better help your child with his or her homework or any difficulties that he or she may encounter.

On the other hand, your discussions with your child's teachers will improve the quality of education your son or daughter receives. While teachers may recognize a student's strengths or weaknesses, you can explain reasons and get to the root of any problems. Smaller class sizes in private school ensure that your child will receive optimal attention.

Make sure that the Ontario Ministry of Education has licensed it to give credits that count towards your child's diploma. You might also wish to contact a representative from the Ministry to learn about a school's reputation.

Proximity to Queen's University

Many parents and students claim that one of the most significant advantages of going to a private school in Kingston is that they are close to Queen's University. Many of Queen's clubs and faculty (such as the Queen's Debating Union) offer programs that enrich the high school experience. In addition, living around a university will allow your child to quickly learn about the atmosphere at a post-secondary institution (i.e. What is a university campus like?)

Paying for Private School

Today's private schools are more affordable than ever. Some Kingston private schools offer tuition rates as low as $5,000 or less. In addition, there is other aid available. Scholarships and bursaries are available to worthy students. You can search our list of financial aid for private schools to find Kingston schools offering various kinds of help. Ontario gives tax breaks for parents who send children to preschoolsfaith-based schoolsspecial needs schools. (To learn more, read our guide to preschool costs and special needs school costs.)
