General Information

Description: “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. Beyond the academic program is a diverse extracurricular activity programme in the arts, athletics, leadership and, most importantly, service. In its 124th year, Ridley College still 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, fencing, powerboat licensing, skeet shooting, 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 30 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. 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 new $15 million rink. If theater is what you love, talk with our drama students who traveled to the UK last year. While there they staged a production in five different venues and met Ridleians from all over Europe. Try your hand at the controls of our robot in the new Robotics Lab. Go to Biology class and check out our work on the International Barcode of Life Database. Attend a House meeting and meet potential friends from across the globe. Talk to our university placement experts. Take a tour. Picture yourself here. For now, join us on Facebook facebook.com/ridleycollege, follow us on Twitter @Ridley_College and get some insight to get you started, visit us at www.ridleycollege.com or email us at admissions@ridleycollege.com. We look forward to hearing from you and introducing you to this legacy that could be yours.
