Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

As specialists in boys’ education, we spend a lot of time thinking about the unique ways in which boys learn and grow. We like to say we offer "big school" opportunities with a "small school" feel. Graduates of UCC — an International Baccalaureate World School with one of the broadest programs in the country — are highly regarded by top universities and post-secondary institutions worldwide. Our global network of alumni includes leaders and innovators in politics, finance, arts, athletics, media and beyond. UCC also has one of the most generous financial assistance programs among independent schools in Canada, offering $4.5 million annually.

Teaching approach of the school

As an International Baccalaureate World School, UCC aims to develop well-rounded boys with character who respond to challenges with optimism and an open mind, and who are prepared to apply what they learn in real-world, complex, unpredictable situations.
