Albert College lies on 25 acres in beautiful Belleville, Ontario, Canada. There are two main buildings located on campus, the Junior School and the Middle/Senior School. The Senior School building also includes the junior and senior boys’ residences, Baker House and Graham Hall. The Senior School is a historic gothic style building that was built in 1923. There are plenty of large trees and outdoor areas to relax, read, study or play games. For those who like to walk, jog, or bike, a large waterfront park and marina is located just minutes from the College on the beautiful Bay of Quinte.

Albert College's Memorial Chapel is located at the centre of the school. Faculty, residential staff and students begin their day here with an assembly. On certain days, this 15-minute gathering will include announcements relating to school events and features prefect thematic presentations.
Each Wednesday morning, there is a more formal Chapel Service of approximately 30 minutes when students are expected to wear their dress one uniform. More formal services are also conducted in November (Remembrance Day), at Christmas, Easter and at Convocation.
Although the heritage of our chapel worship is Christian in nature, great care is taken to honour all religious traditions. Guest speakers and faculty share knowledge of these traditions with the entire school community in the chapel setting. These Wednesday services also include presentations that raise awareness about important issues in the community and globally.
There is no better time for a family to come together than meal times. The meal times at Albert College are always an opportunity to sit, enjoy food, friends and family.
