Private schools in this region regularly achieve high ranking on the Fraser Institute's annual report cards. While these ratings are far from perfect, they demonstrate the strong reputations of private schools in both Hamilton and Burlington.

Tuition for these institutions can range from as low as $4,000 per year. There are also strategies to help you cover private education tuition. Some of these include:

Private schools in Burlington and Hamilton usually have smaller class sizes than do other types of schools. As such, your son's or daughter's teachers will be able to closely monitor his or her performance and areas that require improvement. Instructors can tailor classes to meet the unique needs of your child.

Private institutions also have the capacity to offer excellent facilities, diverse extracurricular programs, extra-help sessions outside of class, and many other important services. Their resources give them the best chance to attract the top teachers in Canada.

Private School Oversight in Ontario

The foremost body that governs private schools in the province is the Ontario Ministry of Education. Although the Ministry does not regulate all schools, it has the power to step in when there are problems. It has the most authority over high schools, as in order to give credits that count toward a high school diploma, a high school must have proper accreditation from the Ministry.
