"Our son started at WHA in January 2020 as a grade 1 student. He has blossomed, gaining confidence in himself both socially and academically. He is excited about school! Our daughter loves kindergarten at WHA. The small class sizes, caring teachers, and inclusive environment create a "family" at school where the kids feel safe to express themselves and try new things. We are very happy to be part of the WHA family!"
"Wellington Hall Academy has been life-changing for my son. The program is high academics balanced with outdoor learning and an inclusive community. The support and care my son receives ripples into our family life. He laughs more than ever before and NEVER wants to miss a day of school. We feel blessed to have found such a gift for his journey through school and learning."
"WHA offers everything that any parent wishes to have: quick and efficient communication with the very dedicated school staff, a very supportive and inclusive environment for all students, and, most importantly, luxuriously low class sizes to ensure adequate focus and attention on all students to inspire and support learning. Time and time again my daughter reminds me how much she enjoys WHA and it shows. She feels absolutely supported by her teacher and knows that when she needs to reach out for extra help her teacher is always there for her. She went from being overwhelmed and struggling in the public system to absolutely thriving at WHA in the first 3 weeks of school! WHA definitely sets the benchmark for what every school in Ontario should offer."
"Wellington Hall has been like a strong warm hug. Catherine Huntley has been available and so receptive and willing to help our daughter in the way she needs help. Small classes are great for learning and reducing social anxiety. The teachers have time to get to know the kids. They are kind and empathetic - and creative. We couldn’t be happier."
"Wellington Hall is such a wonderful school. Children are taught the way they learn best instead of having to fit into the “square” of the standard school system! Catherine is an amazing leader and teacher to help our children meet their greatest potential! Wish we had found Wellington Hall years ago! ❤️"
"[Wellington Hall] has been an all-around positive experience for [my son]. Catherine Huntley and her staff create a safe, inclusive environment that makes the children feel at ease. The children are taught at their ability level instead of their age level, which has been empowering for my son. This school has been an extremely positive experience for my son and our family. I highly recommend this school."

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.
