Average Class Size

Small class size means fewer distractions in class, and teachers are able to meet the needs of every child using differentiated lesson plans


Total Enrollment



Our small school community feels like a family, where children respect and help each other and get the nurturing and guidance they deserve


Experiential Learning

We believe in hands-on learning through projects, experiments, and experiences to foster critical thinking. Every year we put on two major dramatic/musical productions, and have numerous field trips and in-school activities.


Environmental Focus

WHA is located on 600 nature-filled acres of the Ignatius Jesuit Center. Outdoor education, nature walks, and time outdoors is part of our curriculum!

Wellington Hall Academy - Guelph, Ontario

Wellington Hall is a vibrant, independent PreK to Grade 8 school. We opened our doors in 1995 with the idea that a small school can create big opportunities for children. Small class size and a devotion to individual attention to student needs result in a warm, enjoyable learning experience for students. Our Classroom – Classwork covers a broad academic curriculum, as well as music, drama, the arts, French as a second language, and physical education. Our academic program pushes our students to achieve levels that they never thought were possible. We also teach more than just academics at WHA; we teach new ways of thinking and approaching problems. Our small school provides much opportunity for learning to work with others and to develop leadership skills. Our diverse school community provides our students a broad perspective on living and learning with others. Our Playground – An important aspect of our educational philosophy is engagement – both mental and physical. Our students are encouraged to play, self-discover, and explore their interests; they develop a strong desire to challenge themselves. This foundation combines to foster a love of learning and a contagious pursuit that has our students excited to come to school. And we know that movement and time in the outdoors is essential to good physical and mental health. Students spend ample times outdoors on the beautiful grounds of Ignatius Jesuit Centre, including two recesses per day, outdoor physical education, and nature walks.
