Overview
“World Prep” is what you find here: an education, programme, and faculty that are born of the new world yet built on our classical roots to offer students a forward-looking and rigorous university preparatory education relevant to the most selective colleges and universities around the globe. Ridley College offers the IB Diploma Programme as well as the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. Beyond the academic programme is a diverse co-curricular programme in the arts, athletics, leadership and, most importantly, service. Ridley College holds close to its motto, Terar Dum Prosim, or “May I be consumed in service.” Opportunities for students include over 75 student clubs, activities, and organizations. The many student clubs available include cadets, film club, blockchain technology, debate club, robotics, ski club, model UN and many more. Finally, a number of leadership opportunities exist for students to pursue, both within the clubs but also leadership in the Houses and School Prefects. Ridley’s historic campus is located 45 minutes from the Toronto Airport and sits near Lake Ontario, a few minutes from Niagara Falls. With over 375+ boarders from 59 countries, Ridley is Ontario’s largest boarding programme and the second largest in Canada. The campus is 90 acres with the newest facilities, including a new athletic complex, ten boarding houses for boarding students, playing fields, labs, two theatres and modern classrooms with the latest technology. We welcome the opportunity to host you on campus and assist you in discovering the legacy of a Ridley education. Lace-up your skates and enjoy our NHL-size rink. If theatre is what you love, talk with our drama students. Try your hand at the controls of our robots in the Robotics Lab. Go to Biology class and extract DNA from a strawberry. Attend a House meeting and meet potential friends from across the globe. Talk to our university placement experts. Take a tour. Picture yourself here.
