Our Mission

Ashbury College engages students in a dynamic learning environment and inspires them to become intellectually curious, 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 welcomes day students from Grades 4 to 8 and day and boarding students from Grades 9 to 12. Ashbury currently has 100 students boarding on campus. Twenty percent of Ashbury's student population is international and represents 48 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.

We invite you to visit the campus, where you can experience the character, commitment and achievement of our students.

Core Values

Academic Excellence

Our enriched academic programs promote critical thinking, creativity and the pursuit of knowledge in preparing students for success in university and in life.  Our teachers thrive within a culture of innovation and creativity in teaching and learning excellence and are committed to continuous improvement.


The spirit of Ashbury is characterized by enthusiasm and cooperation and based on strong and productive relationships among students, staff, alumni and parents. Our caring coeducational community offers a safe, structured environment in which students and staff members are encouraged to reach their potential.

Character Development

We foster ethical and spiritual growth in a community founded on mutual respect.  Our students and staff act with integrity and compassion.  Ashbury provides an environment that supports constructive debate, allows time for reflection, and encourages community involvement and personal responsibility.

Personal Growth

Athletics, the arts, outdoor education, spirituality and service to others drive our students to take risks and to strive for excellence.  They learn about the importance of commitment and collaboration.  Participation leads to the development of healthy, self-confident, resilient individuals with strong leadership skills and balanced lives. 

International Engagement

As an IB World School located in the heart of Canada’s bilingual capital city and profiting from a culturally diverse community, we foster students who are open-minded to the perspectives, values and traditions of all cultures and who act with international understanding and global responsibility.  We share a spirit of outreach locally, nationally and globally and seek partnerships to enhance our learning.
