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 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.
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.
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.

Track and Field
The prairie provinces are the heart of Canada, rich in cultural, historic, and natural history. The landscape of lakes and rivers, forests and prairies stretches from the Arctic in the north to the seemingly endless farmland in the south, situated along the boarder between Canada and United States. There are cultural treasures, including the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, as well as natural environments are protected by a robust network of provincial and national parks.
High school graduation requirements are set by the provincial ministry of education, not the federal government. In order to graduate, students need to have at least 24 credits at the grade 10-12 level, with at least five earned at the grade 12 level. A credit represents a completed course. Fifteen courses are compulsory, and the remaining nine are discretionary. There are compulsory course requirements in English, science, mathematics, social science, health, and arts.
