Description

A ticket to the world in your hand, the keys to knowledge in your pocket, true friends by your side, and the resources of a legacy at your back.

 

Founded in 1889, Ridley College is a coeducational boarding and day school located on a beautiful 90-acre campus in St. Catharines, Ontario. An hour drive from Toronto and ten minutes from breathtaking Niagara Falls, the Ridley campus is easily accessible from both Toronto Pearson International Airport and Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Students range from JK through grade 12 and come from 53 countries worldwide. With over 360 boarders, Ridley has the largest boarding programme in Ontario and is one of Canada’s oldest and most prestigious boarding schools.

 

 

“World Prep” is what you find here: a forward-looking and rigorous programme that prepares students for a university education and a promising future. Ridley is one of only three International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum boarding schools in North America, offering 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 our ESL credit course. Ridley graduates go on to study at some of the top colleges and universities in Canada, the United States, and internationally, and are equipped with the knowledge and skills for success.

 

 

Beyond academics is a diverse extracurricular programme in the arts, athletics, leadership and, most importantly, community service. For over 125 years, Ridley College has held true to its motto, Terar Dum Prosim, or “May I be consumed in service.” Opportunities abound for participation in Creativity, Action, and Service activities year-round and for students to explore new interests, cultivate their passions, and be challenged to reach their potential.

 

 

One of the defining features of Ridley is the traditional house system, which integrates both boarding and day students into 10 boarding houses on campus, each with its own unique identity and sense of community. By incorporating our local day students into the boarding programme, Ridley provides students with a perfect balance of global cultures and a uniquely Canadian experience.
