School Profile

Albert College is a welcoming and inclusive day and boarding school in Belleville, Ontario. Not only does Albert College have a stellar reputation for preparing young people for university and for life, but it is also recognized for developing global citizens within a close family environment.

As a small school, Albert provides opportunities for its students which would be impossible in a larger school. With a focus on the 5 'A's - Academics, Arts, Athletics, Active Citizenship and Adventure - our students have an incredibly wide array of curricular and co-curricular opportunities. Our objective is to help students polish talents and discover new ones, all within a caring and nurturing environment that values individuality, compassion, integrity, diversity and inclusion, and optimism.

Albert College’s boarding experience fosters accountability, initiative and organizational skills. Self-confidence, a growing sense of independence and lasting friendships are the results of living in our supportive environment. Our boarding students will learn about other cultures and make lifelong friends while also learning a great deal about themselves as individuals. The students and staff at Albert will soon become an extended family, studying, learning, working, playing and growing together. On the weekends, boarding students enjoy organized activities supervised by boarding staff. Students are encouraged to get involved, step outside their comfort zone and try something new.

School Differentiators

Albert College has been called home by many generations of students, both boarding and day.

The students and staff at Albert will soon become your extended family. Albert College offers boarding to students from Grades 7 to 12. A 'home away from home' to students from around the world, Albert College provides its students with the unique opportunity to live with and learn about other cultures.

We strive to develop an academic program suited to each student, one that will challenge and enable students to achieve ambitious post-secondary goals. Our graduates consistently receive offers from the university or college of their choice, attending top universities in Canada and abroad.

Structured independence in a safe, nurturing environment is what makes Albert's boarding program unique. Students who have had the opportunity to live away from home for the first time during high school often have a smoother transition to post-secondary studies. Boarding in a familiar, nurturing environment provides students with the opportunity to safely explore their independence. Boarding options include full-time for international students, and multi-day boarding (one to five days) for students based in Canada wishing to stay in boarding during the week so they can fully participate in school life.

Our students learn to embrace and respect the culture and the diversity of their peers. In addition to the 5 'A's of Albert College (Academics, Arts, Athletics, Adventure and Active Citizenship), our experienced boarding staff assist our students to become leaders of their generations. Our boarding students create special bonds that will last a lifetime.

Duke of Edinburgh's International Award

A program focusing on individual development, personal achievement and self-challenge, the Duke of Edinburgh program is available to anyone between the ages of 14 and 25. As students work towards the levels in the program, they have the opportunity to organize and participate in a variety of expeditions including canoe trips, outdoor camping, dogsledding, snowshoeing and hiking.

Orientation Camp

Orientation Camp is an Albert tradition dating back to 1973 and is a highlight for students each September. Before classes begin, students and faculty spend a few days enjoying the Canadian outdoors together. During the day, students choose from a variety of activities including kayaking, canoeing, sailing, sports, games, rock climbing and hiking. In the evenings, everyone gathers around the campfire for skits and songs. Orientation Camp provides a relaxed environment that encourages interaction and cooperation and supports a strong sense of community. Camp is an excellent opportunity to meet other students and spend time with teachers outside the classroom.

March Break Trip

During March break, students have the opportunity to go on an adventure or community service trip. These trips may contribute to the silver and gold level Duke of Edinburgh award, and will connect to Albert's 5 'A's.
