Oakville's private schools continue to become more affordable than they have been in the past. Tuition ranges from as low as $5,900, and some schools will help you pay for your child's private school through scholarships and financial aid. In addition, if you send multiple children to a private school in Oakville, you could receive a sibling discount.

Types of Private Schools

Our Kids lists numerous types of private schools in Oakville, such as boarding, gifted, Montessorialternative schools, Christian, academic, troubled teens, and preschool.   

Traditional

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.

Montessori

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.

Faith-based

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.

Alternative

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

*        *        *

Meet with Oakville's top ranked private schools and the best boarding schools across Canada at the Halton-Peel Private School Expo and Toronto Private School Expo in October. These one day events are a must for any parent or student considering an alternative education.
