Sending your son or daughter to a private school in Oakville, Ontario gives him or her numerous unique benefits. Some of these advantages include:

  • Private schools offer educational programs that meet children's unique needs and aptitudes. Instead of just teaching a standardized curriculum, instructors focus on the strengths and weaknesses of each student and tailor their classes accordingly. Small class sizes allow staff to give specific attention to everyone in their classes.
  • When needed, Oakville's private schools will provide your child with extra help outside of class.
  • Private schools teach from a perspective that matches your family's beliefs or ideals (i.e. Christian, Montessori, and alternative schools).
  • Private schools in Oakville give you an opportunity to talk to your child's instructors, so both of you can identify strong points and areas that need improvement.

Types of Private Schools

Our Kids lists numerous types of private schools in Oakville, such as:

Traditional

These schools offer small class sizes, plenty of extracurricular activities, and many of the other commonly cited benefits of private school. Their approach to education does not differ greatly from the mainstream.

Schools for Students with Special Needs

If your child has special needs, such as Asperger's Syndrome or ADHD, you will find private education an ideal option. Instructors are specially trained to deal with these learning disorders and disabilities. Small class sizes ensure that your son or daughter receives sufficient attention. The province of Ontario may help you pay for a special needs education.

Montessori

Such schools are all about independence and leadership development at a young age. A Montessori education trains students to become citizens of the world, as they develop all aspects of a student's psyche.

Faith-based

Many parents appreciate these schools because they allow you and your child to be part of a community of like-minded individuals. In Ontario, paying the tuition of a faith-based institution counts as a charitable donation for which you will receive a tax break.

Alternative

Schools which have philosophies that diverge from traditional mindsets are called alternative.
