Letter from Head of School

Welcome to MacLachlan College, one of the top elementary and secondary private schools in Oakville. This historic building in the heart of Oakville, Ontario is much more than a place where your child goes to school, it is an active hub for learning and development.

As an independent school that spans from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 12, we witness, and influence, tremendous growth in our students, and we feel privileged to guide them through this journey. Our dedicated teachers construct creative and innovative programs so that every individual child's needs, potential, interests, and talents are nurtured and developed.

It is likely that you have given a great deal of thought to the qualities you are looking for in a private school. As you explore our website, you will get a glimpse into our school and our program offerings; however, the best way to learn about our unique and engaging environment is to experience it. I encourage you to visit us and see first-hand how MacLachlan College is much more than a school. It is a community where children and young adults thrive, and where confidence, curiosity and passion ignite.

MacLachlan's exceptional PK through Grade 12, co-ed learning environment is centered on academic excellence and the latest innovations in education. Learn how our adaptive and dynamic learning spaces promote interaction and communication and enable students and teachers to re-imagine possibilities.
