All Boys' Schools

Schools for boys

Find a list of schools  

Boys' schools in Canada offer young men a learning environment that maximizes their academic and personal potential. Teaching methods at these schools are tailored specifically toward the way boys learn. Although there are significant differences within each gender, psychologists find that boys and girls develop differently and each gender has an ingrained learning style. Developmental differences between boys and girls are a fundamental reason for the existence of all boys schools and all girls schools.

How boys are different

According to the National Association for Single Sex Public Education, boys become interested in math and science by exploring the "properties of numbers," whereas girls want their instructors to tie class material to the real world. Girls may view being unsuccessful as disappointing to the adults around them, while boys see lack of success as related to the specific subject area. In elementary school, girls tend to learn quicker than boys do (for example, girls usually read first).

At an all boys private school, your son will have the chance to develop at a similar pace to his classmates. The International Boys’ School Coalition notes some other unique traits of boys that a boys-only education is best equipped to deal with:

  • Physically, socially and emotionally, boys mature later than girls.
  • Boys are full of energy and "engage physically with the world."
  • Boys are quite often disorganized.
  • Boys like to take risks.
  • Boys seek responsibility and want to be leaders.

Room to be yourself

All-boys schools will allow your son to explore passions he may not have felt comfortable with at another school. Subjects that may be labeled as "feminine" elsewhere will no longer have such a gender stereotype at a boys-only school. A broad range of extra-curricular activities (such as music, art, and drama) might also be opened up for your child to enjoy. Boys have a greater opportunity to find their true identity.

Boys will also be free from the pressure to do things to impress girls. Away from the presence of girls, boys feel less pressure to grow up too quickly. A boys-only school will help your son settle into a less competitive atmosphere where he and his classmates do not feel the weight of trying to uphold a certain reputation.

Paying for an all-boys private school

There are numerous ways to pay for a private school. If your son has been really successful or involved in a particular area (like academics, visual art, music, community service, and more), then his school may award him a scholarship. All-boys private schools might also provide you with a bursary if you demonstrate clear financial need. However, you may have to pay to apply for some of these grants, so make sure that you are likely eligible.

Also consider other helpful financing options. These could include: tax breaks for sending your child to a religious school, donations from charitable organizations, and government subsidies. Learn more from the all boys private schools listed below.
