These schools offer small class sizes, plenty of extracurricular activities, and many of the other commonly cited benefits of private school. Their approach to education does not differ greatly from the mainstream.

Schools for Students with Special Needs

If your child has special needs, such as Asperger's Syndrome or ADHD, you will find private education an ideal option. Instructors are specially trained to deal with these learning disorders and disabilities. Small class sizes ensure that your son or daughter receives sufficient attention. The province of Ontario may help you pay for a special needs education.


Such schools are all about independence and leadership development at a young age. A Montessori education trains students to become citizens of the world, as they develop all aspects of a student's psyche.


Many parents appreciate these schools because they allow you and your child to be part of a community of like-minded individuals. In Ontario, paying the tuition of a faith-based institution counts as a charitable donation for which you will receive a tax break.


Schools which have philosophies that diverge from traditional mindsets are called alternative or progressive.
