The Essential Parent Guide to Private Education

Probably the greatest site in the world on private schooling



Having surveyed the Canadian private school landscape for almost two decades, we've accumulated a treasure trove of insights. This is your guide to independent schools – from preschool to grade 12.


1   Private School Basics

Is private schooling right for my family?

Sending your child to a private school can be a big step. If you're just starting to entertain the private school option, begin your research here.


2   Types of Schools

What are my private school options?

From special needs to Montessori, single-sex to coed, boarding and more, the range of private schools is remarkably diverse.


3   Trends in Education

What educational trends and debates should I be aware of when picking a school?

New Math or Old Math? Student-centred or teacher-centred classrooms? Debates around educational methods and philosophies can be fierce. This guide cuts through the buzzwords and arms you with key knowledge for your school search.


4   Choosing a School

How do I pick a school when there are so many competing priorities?

Parents always ask us, "What's the best school"? And our answer is always the same: put your energy into finding the best "fit" for your child. This is hard - much harder than picking a school from the top of a list. But your child will be better for it.


5   Applying to Schools

What do schools look for in applicants?

Read how to ensure a successful (and stress-free) application. We recommend you start planning a year in advance.


6   Paying School Tuition

Are private schools within my financial reach?

Over the years we've worked with many financial advisors and private school insiders to crack the code: how to keep private school costs low and within reach.
