Nestled into the heart of old Oakville, in a restored mansion, MacLachlan College is one of the country’s leading independent institutions. Since 1978, MacLachlan has been fostering the successes of children and preparing them for the wide-open world that awaits. By combining the best in academics, an eye on the technologies and pedagogies shaping the future, and small and select student body, MacLachlan ensures that each student receives the attention and guidance they require to propel themselves to the next levels of their academic careers.
MacLachlan College understands that, at its core, the decision between private and public schools comes down to choice – the choice of how parents wish to design and cultivate their children’s’ learning experiences and shape their futures. At MacLachlan, your child will have the benefit of smaller class sizes, increased attention and home-school communication to ensure progress.
MacLachlan is “a highly-engaged school community that fosters a climate of achievement and love of learning.” Essential to that credo is the notion of community itself, an integral part of the school’s programming – both locally and globally. MacLachlan students interact and engage with diverse communities and pursue initiatives in order to enrich their life experience. Students may also participate in cultural engagement trips to Kenya, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, and Cuba. And, as a Round Square candidate school, the opportunities for international experiences are even greater.
In order to keep up with an ever-evolving pedagogical and technological landscape, MacLachlan has a dedicated curriculum focused on innovation and technology. Their 40 years of educating the minds of tomorrow make them keenly aware of how quickly the world changes, and pride themselves in updating and enhancing
all facets of their pedagogy and technology.
Beyond prominence and experience, MacLachlan prides itself on a holistic approach to education. Their approach is one that considers the whole student and understands the challenges that await them beyond their MacLachlan years. A commitment to “innovation, global mindedness, health and wellness and real-world connection to student learning” impacts each child’s evolution as both people and students. Theirs is a world-class academic program, one that promises not just an education, but
