Located in the beautiful Niagara Region in southern Ontario, Ridley is decidedly shaped by great Canadian values, and our students reflect the multiculturalism and diversity of modern-day Canada.

Our home in St. Catharines is close enough to large city amenities yet tucked away in the beauty of the Niagara escarpment and green Ontario forests. Students and staff benefit from being located near the Canada-U.S. border, Toronto, Buffalo and several international airports.

Niagara At A Glance

Canada is a beautiful nation, and the Niagara Region is one of its many gems.

Part of Ontario’s Greenbelt, the Niagara Region is a large landmass of protected farmland, communities, forests, wetlands and watersheds. One of the most acclaimed grape-growing and winemaking regions, Niagara offers countless internationally recognized vineyards and wineries with great food.

Lush, diverse landscapes, natural wonders of the world and a fantastic arts and culture scene have become places of learning at Ridley.
