Canadian Private Schools Are More Expensive
Actually Canadian schools offer a great education at a great price. The Canadian dollar usually trades a few points below the U.S. dollar and that fact makes Canadian private schools even more attractive financially.
Canadian Private Schools Are Too Far Away
Most Canadian private schools are concentrated in Canada's major population centers along the U.S.-Canadian border. Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal are easy to get to, as well as being exciting cities to visit and live in. Typically you are looking at a flight of 2-3 hours from most of the United States.
Canadian Private School Graduates Can't Get Into U.S. Colleges
Canadian private school graduates have always been able to attend American colleges and universities. In fact they often have a competitive advantage because they come from a foreign country.
You Only Send Your Child to Canada for Hockey
Certainly since hockey is Canada's national sport, it is a major focus in Canadian private school athletic programs. But most schools offer plenty of other sports and extracurricular activities. You can always learn how to curl, for example, as curling is almost as popular as hockey. Seriously, winter sports of every kind are huge in Canada. So if your child loves skiing or skiboarding, Canadian private schools have much to offer.
Canadian Schools Teach Canadian Curricula
Canadian schools do prepare their graduates for high school matriculation according to their various provincial standards. But many schools also offer thorough preparation in the International Baccalaureate programs and/or Advanced Placement examinations.
