Private schools in Aurora, like those from across the country, foster many of the best minds in local business, industry, politics, and other sectors.

All Ontario schools, including Aurora private schools, fall under the jurisdiction of the Ontario Ministry of Education. All private schools must file a yearly Notice of Intention to Operate a Private School with the ministry, which also inspects private secondary schools that wish to offer credits towards the OSSD.
