Private schools in Aurora usually score well on the Fraser Institute's annual Ontario school rankings. While these ratings are subjective and don't account for your son or daughter's specific learning styles, they also show you that private schools here are well respected.

Private schools in Aurora, like those from across the country, foster many of the best minds in local business, industry, politics, and other sectors. Enrolling your child in a private school will provide him or her with the educational programs or perspectives that suit his or her aptitudes. Many private schools offer smaller class sizes than do other types of schools, as well as extra attention outside of class. Your child need not fall behind.

Private School Regulation in Ontario

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. Teachers at Ontario's private schools don't need to be certified by the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT), although many private school teachers have OCT certification.
