Global Understanding

Creating a Global Understanding

The boarding experience is enriched by students from over 65 countries around the world.

Students live, study, socialize, and excel together while being exposed to different cultural references and international perspectives. This unique environment allows students to develop the global literacy and competency they need to create and cultivate their roles as leaders in an increasingly global community.

The Houses of Ridley are also the focal point for social activities and inter-house rivalries. The houses provide all students with opportunities to participate in structured activities on- and off-campus, examples including:
  • Bowling night
  • Deans Dance nights
  • Skating
  • Ping-pong tournaments
  • Harry Potter night
  • Ridley Haunted House
  • On-campus sports nights
  • Off-campus visits to local movie theatres, Canada’s Wonderland, Niagara Paintball Park, and Fallsview Indoor Water Park
  • Weekend ski trips to Mont Tremblant
