Private School Regulations in Ontario

If a school seeks to give diploma-worthy credits, then it must allow Ontario Ministry of Education inspections. Moreover, any school in Ontario must meet provincial standardized criteria. Private schools in Ancaster most often go far above provincial guidelines, applying their own educational philosophies and distinct strategies to provide students with the best possible education.

When you are searching for a private school, especially a high school, be sure to verify that it is registered with the Ontario Ministry of Education. You might also investigate its reputation using Fraser Institute's annual rankings. While these should never be your only gauge of the quality of a school, they can certainly offer guidance.
