Sending your son or daughter to a private school in Thornhill, in the York-region of Ontario between Vaughan and Markham, comes with a multitude of benefits. 

One mother describes sending her child to a private school here as one of the best decision she ever made:

"My daughter was floundering at her previous school. The teachers at her new school were and continue to be available for help outside of class at anytime. Most of all, she really benefits from the small class sizes, where she gets the care and support she needs. Our whole family is a lot happier now than we were before."

There are so many benefits to choosing a Thornhill private school when making the final decision about your children's education. Consider the following reasons parents cite when explaining why they chose private school or preschool:

  • Private schools allow parental participation in their children's education. Parents are often closely involved in the school community.
  • Many private schools focus on the issue of class size, remaining vigilant about maintaining class order and attending as closely as needed to the individual needs of students. Discipline and homework are a top priority and an aspect that directly affects your child and his or her environment.
  • Private schools often encourage creativity in unique ways that are simply unavailable without a specialized focus - such as you will find at some private schools in Thornhill, for example.
  • Private schools offer a wealth of alternatives, so parents can find the school espousing the particular religious or educational perspective they wish for their children. For instance, there are faith-based schools, such as Christian and Catholic schools. There are also alternative schools, such as Montessori (in Richmond Hill and nearby Vaughan, Ontario), Waldorf, and Reggio Emilia schools.

Prior to selecting a private school for your son or daughter, think about some or all of the following questions:

  • How affordable is tuition? Are there any extra costs (i.e. fieldtrips, textbooks, transportation)?
  • Does the school offer scholarships or financial aid? Would you be eligible for either of these grants?
  • Is its location accessible to you?
  • What is the school's general approach to education? Do you agree with this outlook?
  • Does the school have extracurricular activities that fit with the interests of your child?
