Exciting news for September 2020

From the Headmaster

"We have just announced that King’s-Edgehill School will be opening in September with “real” classes. Boarding and Day students will be warmly welcomed to campus on opening day. Because we believe that the best teaching and learning environment is personal and not virtual, our provincial health authority has helped us create daily screening protocols and operational guidelines to keep everyone healthy. These will be refined over the next four months, but our guidelines include providing a safe and comfortable two-week off-campus isolation period for international boarders upon their arrival in Nova Scotia. They also include everything from shields for our kitchen staff to daily temperature and health checks for our students. And the highest quality hand sanitizer everywhere!

I am well aware that different universities across Canada have declared they will only be offering online instruction in September. For sure, our announcement is counter-current and will likely draw some attention. However, we have always held ourselves to the highest standard of education and given that we have a beautiful and contained 75 acre campus (with facilities that rival some small universities), we can continue to offer the very best in personal, caring, education. Goodness knows we already have the smallest class sizes in the province and are one of the smallest high schools in Nova Scotia."  From Mr. Joe Seagram, Headmaster

Opening Plan September 2020

While our campus is very quiet at the moment, we are still very much OPEN to sharing our School with you.

King’s-Edgehill School is the oldest independent school in the British Commonwealth.  We truly value tradition, but we are also known for our adaptability and our modern approach to education.  Just as we have changed the way in which we teach, lead and engage with our students we have adapted the ways in which you can experience our School as a prospective family. 

Discover our School with a PhotoJournal.  These downloadable PhotoJournals walk you through A Day in the Life of a Day Student or A Day in the Life of a Boarding Student.

One of the highlights of the admissions process is personally showing families around our beautiful campus.  While we can’t do a traditional tour, thanks to technology like: FaceTime, Whatsapp, and Zoom, we have been bringing the campus to living rooms, offices and kitchens around the province and throughout the country. 

While our campus is not the same without our 350 vibrant students—a virtual tour still gives you the opportunity to experience the campus, see the aspects of our School that might not be captured in our videos or photojournals and to ask your individual questions.
