Residential Life Philosophy

Boarding is an integral part of Appleby's curriculum. The Residential Life Program's mission is to promote and provide for boarders' academic, social, cultural and personal growth within a safe and inclusive residential community, with particular emphasis on the school's six Pillars of Strength. Central to this mission is the development of mutual understanding, respect and responsibility in a supportive living and learning community. As a boarding community which seeks to fully integrate students from all over the world, the Residential Life Curriculum especially seeks to promote understanding across different cultural, linguistic, and national backgrounds.

  • Students come from across Canada and more than 35 countries around the world.
  • Boarders live together, fostering an environment of intercultural leaning, mutual respect, moral growth and academic networking.
  • Boarding teaches respect, self-discipline and confidence.
  • Within a supportive and structured environment, students learn more about themselves as they grow together while contributing to residential life on campus and the Oakville community at large.
  • Boarding nurtures lifelong friendships and commitment to Appleby College.
  • By living away from home, students develop a sense of independence, responsibility and skills that lead to success at university and beyond.
