Dear Prospective Students and Families:
Welcome and thank you for your interest in MacLachlan College. We understand that choosing a school is an incredibly important decision. It not only must be the best fit for your child, but for your family as well. MacLachlan is so much more than a place where your child goes to school to get an education, we are a special and exceptional community that is one of the many influencing parts of your child’s development. We are a place where friendships are made, interests are cultivated, learning is nurtured and goals are achieved.
MacLachlan’s learning environment is truly unique. Located in a restored mansion in the heart of beautiful and picturesque downtown Oakville, our campus is steeped in proud tradition and history, and delivers programs that are challenging, innovative and inspiring. Our passion is to enrich the lives of each of our students within a learning culture that honours and respects their individuality.
We are true to our motto “Where tradition meets vision”, but our methodology and approach to the demands of an ever changing world is progressive. MacLachlan is known for providing an academically challenging, yet nurturing environment where our students are inspired to learn and are provided the encouragement and opportunities to discover and develop individual interests and talents. We are proud to offer the world renowned International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme as well as MacLachlan signature programs offered in our Upper School and Advanced Placement courses for our Grade 11 and 12 students.
The goal of the Admissions department is to select students and families who are dedicated to an enriching educational experience, who will benefit from, contribute to, and embody our school values. That is the cornerstone of MacLachlan families and what makes our school community so strong and vibrant. You can learn a lot from exploring our website, but nothing compares to visiting our school, seeing students in action and deciding whether MacLachlan is the right fit for your child.
