RELIGIOUS-AFFILIATED EDUCATION IN CANADA

The Our Kids guide to private religious-affiliated schools in Canada



Is a private, religious-affiliated school right for your child?

Our guide is meant to help you with this important decision. We cover the different kinds of private, religious-affiliated schools in Canada and discuss the many issues parents face when considering one of these schools. We then provide a comprehensive list of religious-affiliated schools and tools for comparing those schools by their program offerings.



Quick summary:

  • Religious-affiliated schools, also known as faith-based schools, are associated with a specific religion.

  • The most common religious-affiliated schools are Christian and Catholic, but there are also Islamic, Jewish, Sikh, and Buddhist schools, among others. In Canada, other than some Catholic schools (which receive full funding from the government), these schools are private.

  • Religious-affiliated schools have a dual-track curriculum: they teach both secular and religious subjects. Most schools require students to take at least two religion courses a year, but in some schools, religion courses make up more than a third of the curriculum.

  • In many religious-affiliated schools, students engage in religious practices, such as prayers and rituals. Most schools, though, don’t require students to engage in them. In fact, many of these schools don’t require their students to belong to or practice the religion at all.

  • Religious-affiliated schools have lots of benefits. For instance, they can allow kids to develop their religious and cultural identity, and form bonds with peers with similar backgrounds, interests, and values.

  • We list religious-affiliated private schools on this site, and provide tools for comparing those schools. Moreover, our parent discussion forum allows you to discuss options and get answers to your questions.






 
Faith-based schools can allow students to develop their religious and cultural identity and feel part of a community.
