While it’s misleading to rank private schools overall, it can be helpful to rank them in terms of specific criteria. Here, we rank them in terms of cost: we provide a list of the top 20 most expensive private schools in Canada.
A school’s pricetag is important. While schools with higher tuition rates are less affordable, they also tend to have some great perks. They often have impressive facilities, lots of extracurricular activities, and ample technological resources, specialized programs, and student support services. Some pricier schools have also built up a strong reputation, in Canada and abroad.
Cost, though, shouldn’t be confused with excellence. Just because a school is expensive doesn’t mean it’s a great school, or more to the point, the right fit for you child. In choosing a school, you should look at far more than price. You’ll also want to consider its academics, programs, community, culture, and much more.
