Our boarding school guide has advice specific to finding boarding schools in Canada. For insights that are more general (on how to evaluate school options) we recommend you review our hub on choosing a school. You can also read our guides to questions to ask private schools and questions students get asked at school interviews.

Private school expos

Private school expos are ideal launching pads for your school-finding journey. All expos are held in the fall at a number of centres across Canada. There are three expos hosted in Ontario, one in Toronto, one in Halton-Peel, and one in Ottawa. Expos are also held each fall in Vancouver, Montreal, and Calgary. All are opportunities to speak with administrators from leading boarding schools within the regions in which the expos are held.

Parent discussion forum

Word-of-mouth is another powerful tool in your school-finding arsenal. The Our Kids private school discussion forum allows you to discuss your options and debate topics around gifted education. You can use our community of parents, educational experts, alumni, and schools to help answer your questions and stimulate your thinking.

Upcoming open house events

Attending open houses is obviously a great way to learn more about a school and get a feel for the environment. For some advice on open house visits, go here. For questions to ask that are specific to boarding programs, refer to our main boarding school hub.





Broadly speaking, the cost of boarding reflects the cost private school tuition in general, though with premiums added to cover housing and meals.

Many schools offer financial aid, including scholarships and bursaries. Financial aid is needs-based, and financial aid programs are created as a means of broadening the student base and attracting students, independent of means, who will contribute most to the culture of the school. Generally speaking, the larger and more expensive schools provide the most aid.

You can read more about financial aid and scholarships in our dedicated guide.

  • Boarding schools in Canada's maritime region are part of a rich academic tradition that predates Canadian confederation. The oldest boarding school in Canada, King's Collegiate School (now King's-Edgehill School) was founded by United Empire Loyalists in 1788. King's and the other schools in the region rightly cherish the historical tradition that they represent.

    That said, behind the ivy walls are classrooms that are at the cutting edge of education in Canada. Rothesay-Netherwood, for example, offers a full suite of academic programs, including IB and Round Square, on par with the best schools in the world.

    Graduation Requirements in New Brunswick

    High school graduation requirements are set by the New Brunswick Department of Education, not the federal government. To earn a New Brunswick High School Graduation Diploma students are required to complete 20 credits, with a minimum of 5 of those credits earned at the grade 12 level. Each credit represents the successful completion of a course of study. There are compulsory course requirements in English, history, math, science, fine arts, and life role development.
