Students also have the opportunity to be part of the Ridley Cadets programme.

Cadets has been a part of Ridley’s history for more than a century. It is one of the longest standing traditions at the School and is symbolized on the walls of the Memorial Chapel, the Great Hall Arches, the Cannon, and our Archives.

Officially recognized in 1907, the #162 Ridley College Cadet Corps is one of the largest and oldest Cadet Corps in Canada. It has been integral to the development of leaders both nationally and internationally.
