About King’s-Edgehill School

King's-Edgehill School on SchoolAdvice

Founded in 1788, King’s-Edgehill is Canada’s first independent School.

An International Baccalaureate School since 1979, we equip our students for university life around the globe, not only by developing academic rigour, but also by inspiring athletic and artistic excellence, strength of character and community leadership in a manner by which students know they are participating in “personal” and not just “private” education.Founded in 1788, Kings College School was the first independent school in both Canada and the British Commonwealth outside of Great Britain. Today, we honour the remarkable traditions of excellence, achievement and leadership that have long defined our School.

In 1886 horses pulled milk wagons up the long College Road, boys ran from the wooden schoolhouse up to the new chapel for service, and the Cadet corps had just begun. By the time a hand had scratched 1988 in the library’s stone; cars parked beside new classrooms, several generations of students had fought in two World Wars, and the School was getting ready to celebrate its bicentennial.

Now over 230 years later at King’s-Edgehill School, our history and traditions are as alive and integral to our culture as the thud of rugby boots across the lower field, or the musky snap of clean, September air.The KES experience has always been about creating an environment where promising students become responsible, well-rounded leaders. More than two centuries later, this commitment to our students and their families remains unwavering.
