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.

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.
