St. Andrew’s College (SAC) is an independent, all-boys preparatory school for grades 5-12. Located 40 minutes north of Toronto in the town of Aurora, our 110-acre campus is home to a mix of 626 residential and day students. SAC offers a rigorous academic curriculum with multiple Advanced Placement (AP) opportunities, and a rich, activity-based educational environment. A wireless tablet program adds to the learning experience, incorporating the latest technology into the classroom. We welcome boys from around the world with strong academic backgrounds who also want to become active members of our community. As set out in our mission statement, SAC’s academic program is complemented by a wide range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities designed to develop 'the complete man, the well-rounded citizen.' All boys participate in our extensive athletic program (62 teams across 23 sports) and the 108-year-old Cadet Corps. Many of our students also choose to participate in SAC’s internationally acclaimed arts, drama and music programs, and are active in photography, SAC TV, community outreach and more. A St. Andrew’s education is like no other. Graduates gain entry to top universities in Canada, the U.S. and abroad, and are renowned for their strong values, dedication to community, lasting achievements and lifelong friendships.

Summer Programs

The summer session provides an opportunity for motivated students to earn academic credit and have additional flexibility in selecting courses in their graduating year. These factors can contribute to the ultimate goal of meeting rising university entrance standards. All courses qualify for Ontario academic credit and are open to well motivated students who wish to reach ahead in specific areas. Small classes assure plenty of individual attention and support. This, combined with teaching from a group of highly skilled and enthusiastic teachers, makes for a positive and rewarding learning experience. Single room accommodation for boarding students provides ample opportunity for quiet, effective study.
