Hamilton and Burlington Private Schools

Find Hamilton and Burlington schools listed below.

Hamilton and Burlington, Ontario offer numerous academically rigorous private schools. This includes schools in Hamilton, Burlington, Ancaster, Dundas, Crown Point East and West, Gibson, Roseland, and Millcroft.

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:

  • Scholarships: There are numerous ways to receive scholarships. Although academic performance is the most common reason, athletic, artistic, community involvement, and other areas might all make your son or daughter worthy of a scholarship. The majority of these grants come from private schools themselves, but other organizations (i.e. corporations) often give out scholarship funds. Essay writing competitions take place regularly.
  • Financial Aid: If you can show a private school or a charitable organizations that you are in financial need, then they may provide you with a bursary.
  • Flexible Payment Plans: Many private schools make paying tuition more palatable by allowing you to spread out tuition payments over the year.
  • Multiple Child Discounts: Many schools offer sibling discounts that improve the more children you send to a given private school.
  • Tax breaks: Paying the tuition of dual academic and religious curriculum or a school for students with special needs might make you eligible for a tax break in the province of Ontario (read our guide to special needs school costs).

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.
