St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada
“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 college and universities around the globe. Ridley College offers the IB Diploma Programme as well as the Ontario Secondary School Diploma.
Beyond the academic program is a diverse extracurricular activity 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 14 interscholastic sports and over 75 student clubs and organizations. The many student clubs available include newspaper, chapel servers, film club, fencing, core strength & conditioning, international cooking club, art curators 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 300 boarders from over 40 countries, Ridley is Ontario’s largest boarding programme and the second largest in Canada. The campus is 108 acres with the newest facilities, including a new athletic complex opened in 2010, ten residential houses for boarding students, playing fields, labs, two theatres and modern classrooms with the latest technology.
