With over 150 years of experience and excellence in education, Albert College provides an enriched and engaging curriculum from pre-kindergarten to grade 12 to post graduate. With an average class size of approximately 15 students, Albert College is a small school where students get the attention they need and deserve.
A “home away from home” to students from Canada and over 20 nations, Albert College provides residency to both male and female students beginning in grade 7.
We believe in a well-rounded education and at Albert our students embrace Albert’s five A’s – academics, arts, athletics, active citizenship and adventure. Albert’s five A’s, combined with a close-knit family environment and diverse student body, make living and learning at Albert College a truly unique experience.
Albert College offers a diverse academic programme. The curriculum meets or exceeds the standards set by the Ontario Ministry of Education and Training and is delivered by passionate, qualified teachers many of whom hold specialist qualifications and Master's degrees.
Students and teachers work together in their quest for excellence with post-secondary placement as the ultimate goal.
The arts are essential to the development of well-rounded students. All students are involved in artistic classes three times a week as part of our co-curricular programme. Faculty members with specialist degrees teach the musical, theatrical and visual arts components of the arts programme. By incorporating the arts into the academic day, students have time to participate in other after-school co-curricular activities.
Dedicated staff members who are highly certified in their respective sports and seemingly tireless in their enthusiasm support our athletics programme. There are essentially no tryouts — every student who wants to play on a team is invited to participate.
Each term there is a wide range of athletic opportunities from which to choose. Some are competitive, some developmental and some simply recreational.
Albert College promotes active citizenship by embracing the core values of participation and a caring community. A number of leadership and community service opportunities exist for students to become actively involved in the civic life of the school, the local community and internationally.
Students are recognized and encouraged with many students achieving more than twice the required 40 hours of community service before graduation.
The Adventure Programme gives students the opportunity to learn outside the classroom, to challenge themselves in areas of uncertainty, to develop personal leadership and teamwork skills, and to create fond memories and wonderful friendships.
Orientation camp is one of many adventure opportunities available at Albert each year. Dating back to 1973, Orientation camp is a highlight for students each September.
Before classes begin, students and faculty spend several days together in the Canadian great outdoors enjoying kayaking, canoeing, sailing, rock climbing, skits and singing around the campfire.
Camp brings students and staff together in an environment that encourages interaction and cooperation and supports a strong sense of community.
