International schools in Canada

Search for the best international schools in Canada; you can find a list of selected schools at the bottom of this page. Use the search filters to select only girls' or boys' schools, prep schools, senior schools or sixth forms; or you can search for schools that offer a particular curriculum, such as the International Baccalaureate, the UK national curriculum, a US-style model or the International Primary Curriculum.

Vast and sparsely inhabited, Canada has the world’s most highly educated population and one of its highest immigration rates. Not surprisingly, it is also a magnet for international students. Between 2008 and 2015, international enrolments soared by 92 per cent to 353,000, with nearly one in 10 students admitted to an elementary or high school.

Education in Canada is rich and diverse. There are private and public, religious and secular, day and boarding, coeducational and single-sex schools, as well as English-medium, French-medium and bilingual ones. All types of school admit international students, with one-year pre-university programmes a particular growth area. Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal are major centres.  

There are 382 IB World Schools, of which 150 teach in French, 219 in English and seven are bilingual in English and French, Canada’s two official languages. A total of 175 schools offer the IB Diploma, while 15 offer all three IB programmes, including Meadowridge School, The York School, Mulgrave and TFS – Canada’s International School. 

The Canadian Accredited Independent Schools group has 94 member schools, of which 28 are boarding schools, including historic institutions such as Branksome Hall, Toronto, and Ashbury College, Ottawa. Many provinces provide financial support to private schools, so fees can be lower than in some destination countries.

Public day schools also charge fees to international students and some school boards provide them with a centralised admissions system. Toronto District offers places at 28 secondary schools across the city and students can indicate their top three preferences.

Education is compulsory for 12 years from about age five to 16, with some variation between provinces, which oversee both state and private schools. Year groups and curriculums also vary but standards are tightly regulated by provincial authorities. Parents can check whether schools are accredited with bodies such as the Canadian Educational Standards Institute. 

If you are looking specifically for International Baccalaureate World Schools in the United States, you can find selected schools on our sister website: www.ibyb.org.
