Introduction

Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada is one of best boarding schools in America. A traditional private co-educational boarding school for boys and girls. 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 residential life program includes the advisory program and residential life evenings where topics of interest are discussed and explored by the students under the guidance of their Housemasters. This is supported by the Chapel program, the nutrition program in the dining hall, and healthy living support provided by the health centre (ie. Tigers Don't Smoke). Who is involved? Every Upper School student is involved in this program. In each house, the students are divided into mixed or single grade groups depending on the topic being addressed. For example, mixed grade groups will work through an ethical dilemma case study under the guidance of senior students. Weekend programme. The Sport for Life group involves intramural athletics, and also meets for scheduled fitness activities on Saturdays. Most of the fun supervised weekend activities happen in the afternoon or evening and are offered on a purely volunteer basis. On long weekend breaks, Duke of Edinburgh trips are offered for those students working towards their Bronze, Silver or Gold certification. International students that require supervision and wish to further experience Canadian culture can partake of adult supervised trips organized by the Admissions Department in conjunction with other independent schools. During the November mid-term break, a trip to Ottawa and Montreal is offered to tour historical Canadian landmarks and to enhance the grade 10 Canadian history curriculum. In February, a ski trip to Mont Tremblant, Quebec allows students to experience a true Canadian winter wonderland and to ski at a top ranked ski resort. On the May long weekend, a trip to New York City is a positive and highly regarded excursion. Traditionally, Ridley College was an Anglican prep school. But just as the Anglican tradition has changed significantly for the better over the past 550 years, so have we. We are proud to be a part of that process and experience as we adapt that ongoing tradition in creative ways that address the spiritual, social justice, and ecumenical needs of our school and world.
