English schools in the USA and Canada
Ashbury College was founded in 1891 by George Penrose Woollcombe, an ambitious Oxford University graduate and a new Canadian, who served as Ashbury's Headmaster for 42 years.
Today, Ashbury has 160 boys in the Junior School and 490 young men and women, 85 of whom are boarding, in the Senior School.
Situated in the heart of Canada’s Capital, Ashbury College engages students in a dynamic learning environment and inspires them to become intellectually vibrant, compassionate and responsible citizens.
Since 1891, Ashbury has been fostering the academic, artistic and athletic development of our students while nurturing their spiritual growth. Ashbury’s Junior School for boys welcomes day students from Grades 4 to 8. The Senior School, Grades 9 to 12, is co-educational, with approximately 85 students boarding on campus. Twenty percent of Ashbury’s student population is international, and represents 30 countries.
With small classes, a dedicated faculty and well-structured athletic and co-curricular activities, Ashbury College helps each student reach his or her potential in a supportive learning environment.
The five values at the core of the school - academic excellence, community, ethical and spiritual development, personal growth, and international understanding - infuse our curriculum, our relationships and our sense of self. Ashburians are well-rounded, hard-working students who gain the skills, knowledge and passion to succeed in life.
