Question and Answers for Academics and Curriculum


Hi, my name is Edwin.

I was wondering if you can tell me what the process is for seeking employment as a teacher in a private school in Ontario.


Principals and teachers in private schools are not required to be certified by the Ontario College of Teachers. However, a school may require other specific qualifications such as Montessori schools or schools that specialize in students with special needs. Christian schools however, may disregard certifications if the teacher practices their religion and is a right fit for the school.

(p>You can check the Our Kids Private School Job Board or Private School Job Listings on DialogueOnline.ca for current openings.
