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 both male and female students from Grades 7 to 12. A 'home away from home' to students from across the world, Albert College provides its students with the unique opportunity to understand and learn about other cultures.

Male boarding students call Baker House (Junior boys) and Graham Hall (Senior boys) home, while Victoria Manor is home to all boarding female students. The Junior and Senior girls are divided into two different wings. All residences have common rooms with TV, gaming equipment, lounge furniture, laundry facilities and areas for making light snacks. All residential rooms have internet access.

The boarding lifestyle offers many opportunities for boarding students to become leaders among their peers.

The flat senior program is specifically designed to develop leadership skills in young students. Flat seniors assist residential staff in numerous activities, from social events to study hall sign-ins. Day and residential prefects, members of a team of graduate students elected by the school, provide leadership and support to the student body.

The boarding teams are also available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week to provide support, friendship and guidance. In addition, our Health Centre staff are available to facilitate all health concerns. At Albert College, students will learn about other cultures and make lifelong friends while also learning a great deal about themselves as individuals. We treat our community of boarders as an extended family that studies, learns, works, plays and grows together.  We look forward to welcoming you to our home!

Two, Three and Five-Day Boarding Program

Two, three and five-day boarding options are available beginning in Grade 7 and provide the best of both worlds. Weekends with the family and weekdays to concentrate on academics, participate in athletics and fully explore the arts.

Structured independence in a safe, nurturing environment is what makes Albert’s five-day 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. Ask us about all of our boarding options.

The students and staff at Albert will soon become your extended family. But don’t take our word for it – ask our students!

Student Testimonials

When I first entered Baker House all the boys greeted me with a big hug and a huge smile. I instantly knew I wasn't alone. I was really impressed how everyone looked out for each other. So maybe we came in thinking that we were alone but we leave not only with friends, but brothers. EDUARDO MONTES, PAST STUDENT FROM MEXICO
