St. Bonaventure’s College is an independent Jesuit, Catholic school. As part of the global network of more than 2,000 Jesuit schools and universities, we offer students of all faiths a well-rounded education based on academic excellence and the growth of the whole person. We believe that providing a safe, caring community is critical to our students’ success.

As a K-12 school we offer a unique environment where older and younger students can interact and grow together, one where lifelong friendships are made and flourish. Educating students through their whole educational experience also allows for academic continuity and enrichment and extra-curricular activities such as music, athletics, service learning, leadership training and travel opportunities.

Our goal is to form the next generation of global citizens: young men and women with the knowledge, compassion, critical thinking and leadership skills needed to make a difference in the world.

Student For A Day

We welcome any family who is interested in St. Bon’s to email admissions@stbons.ca to set up a Student for A Day Experience for their child. The day will allow them to get to know their future classmates, meet teachers and staff, and get an inside look at what it means to be a St. Bon’s student. We believe you and your child will quickly discover why St. Bon’s is A Great Place To Be. Please note: the day experience can take place before submitting an application.
