Where Tradition and Vision Meet

Housed in a historic mansion in Olde Oakville, MacLachlan was founded in 1978 with the commitment to challenge and explore the limitations of traditional education by developing a bold and creative vision that promotes an entrepreneurial, success-driven and future-oriented mindset that is integrated into every aspect of school life.

Academic Excellence

Always raising the bar on excellence, MacLachlan is accredited as an IB World School, offering the IB Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) in our Lower School from Kindergarten to Grade 6, and offering Advanced Placement (AP) in our high school grades, preparing students for future success at leading universities in Canada and abroad. 

International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement are some of the most rigorous and highly esteemed education programs and are evaluated to ensure adherence to standards of excellence.

Dynamic and Inclusive Community

MacLachlan College is more than a school. It is a dynamic, small and inclusive community where students where teachers guide and facilitate learning by creating real world connections. Our graduates are well prepared for future success and attend top universities in Canada and abroad.

Welcome to MacLachlan College!

Your child will grow into a capable, confident, and compassionate future leader at MacLachlan College.

Our school is small by design, giving our teachers the opportunity to get to know every student and support and inspire them through their learning journey. Students will develop a deeper awareness of themselves and the world around them through their educational and extracurricular experiences.

The best way to experience our wonderful school and all of our programs is to see it firsthand. I invite you to visit our historic campus and learn more about the advantages and possibilities of a MacLachlan education.
