Discover Ridley

Welcoming Applications for 2022-23


Can a school change who you are, who you will become and where you will go in life? Ridley can. Ridley is the key to knowledge in your pocket and true friends by your side. It is a ticket to the world in your hand, and the resources of a legacy at your back.

Part small, local nurturing day school for our younger students, part powerhouse preparation for university, and part global residence as Ontario’s largest boarding programme with students from over 50 countries, Ridley is a timeless and distinguished original — a school that has proudly prepared students for service to the world since 1889.

Welcome to the Ridley website and to the Admissions section. I invite you to check out the links for information you may be seeking and to browse the rest of the site to learn about the legacy that is the Ridley experience and education.

To keep current, please follow us on social media, read our blog or email us to receive periodic updates. To receive more information by mail, please fill out the online inquiry form. And when you are ready, you can begin the application process.

No school search process is complete without a visit. In addition to our open houses and scholarship days, we invite you to visit during the week or on one of our select Saturday mornings. We look forward to meeting you and to arranging your visit to our extraordinary campus.

Yours sincerely,

Julie Cameron
Director of Admissions
