By | Boarding, CA-Schools, Central Canada

At St. Andrew’s College for boys, boarding students enjoy a unique camaraderie outside the classroom through participation in a wide variety of structured activities, events, leadership, and outreach programs — boys can choose to be as busy and engaged as they want to be. With a non-stop pace that challenges and engages boys in every way, St. Andrew’s College offers a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.

While academic success is the number one priority at SAC, learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom. Everything a boy does at St. Andrew’s is a part of the “Complete Man” mission of the School. Whether it’s achieving good grades, making a new friend, scoring a touchdown, getting the lead in a school play, or exercising leadership skills, we approach every moment of a boy’s life as an opportunity to grow to become the “well-rounded citizen.” Student life is created through the multitude of engagements offered, but it is also about the brotherhood that is formed among housemates, classmates, and teammates. It is about the mentoring that goes on between faculty and student, coach, and player, Housemaster, and resident. It is about the cherished traditions that have been created since the School’s inception in 1899.
