Boarding schools are a home away from home for many children whose parents are looking to give their children the tools they need to do and be more. Enrolling your child in a boarding school means giving them the freedom to form lifelong friendships and experience an educational experience unlike any other. Parents send their children to KES because they know they are providing them with the best opportunities to be more.
King’s-Edgehill School is proud to be a CAIS Boarding School. Our family consists of 350 university-bound students from Canada, North America and around the globe. We not only offer outstanding academic programming, including the International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme, but we also strive to provide the best in athletics, arts, and extra-curricular activities for all KES students.
Our students are not only ahead academically; they are also taught resilience, leadership skills and independence. These skills stay with our students long after they graduate.
Our boarding students start their day with breakfast between 7 and 7:45 a.m., followed by a room inspection. Then at 8:10 students congregate in either the Chapel, for assembly or for their advisor meeting. Then it’s off to class until lunchtime around noon. After lunch, there are more classes until 2:30 when students then participate in sports and clubs until supper at 5:30 p.m. Supper is followed by free time and/or clubs, followed by prep and then more free time and of course, a delicious evening snack! Lights out start at 9:45 for our Junior school, with everyone’s lights out by 10:30 p.m.
Students are provided with healthy and tasty food options thanks to Chartwell, our food service provider. As any of our students will tell you, they are amazing! Chartwell offers cooking nights for students and prides themselves in producing sustainable, creative and delicious food to our students.
