Ridley College is focused on educating the whole child and provides students with tools that will help them lead flourishing lives. Our coeducational boarding programme was established in 1889, making Ridley one of Canada's oldest and most prestigious schools.
"World Prep" is what you will find here: a forward-looking, rigorous programme that prepares students for university and a promising future. Ridley is one of only three International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum boarding schools in North America which offer the Primary Years Programme, Middle Years Programme, and Diploma Programme.
In addition to the IB Programme, Ridley offers the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and a wide range of summer programmes, including an EAL credit course. Together with its impressive academics, students experience a diverse co-curricular programme comprised of arts, athletics, leadership development, and community service.
Ridley graduates matriculate to some of the most prestigious universities in the world, including:
For more than 133 years, Ridley College has held to its motto, Terar Dum Prosim, which translates to "May I be consumed in service." Students have plenty of opportunities year-round to give back to their communities, explore new interests, cultivate passions, and reach their potential in a challenging and supportive environment.
One of the school's defining features is its traditional House system, which integrates boarding and day students into ten boarding houses on campus, each with its own distinctive identity and sense of community. By incorporating local day students into its boarding programme, Ridley provides each member with the opportunity to learn more about global cultures while enjoying a uniquely Canadian experience.
