I know that as a private school you hire the best teachers and that is evident. But [my daughter’s teacher] is better than best. I wish I could put into words how much he has helped my daughter this year. He is always there to pick her up and make her feel just as bright and capable as all of his other students, [he has] brought out the best in her. He is that teacher that she will remember her entire life.

YOUR CHARACTER WILL BE VALUED AND INSPIRED What will your character say about you?

At Rundle, we enjoy celebrating uniqueness and the contributions made to our diverse and dynamic school community. Strong character is really important to us at Rundle, where social and emotional learning is just as important as academic learning. We want our students inspired to model moral and ethical behaviours to shape their character. If you’re looking for a place to be your best self, then Rundle might be just the right place for you.

The nine years I spent at Rundle College forever sit among the most enjoyable and formative years of my life. I’m of the opinion education is far less about the content you absorb and more about learning how to learn, finding what you are passionate about, interacting with other people, and discovering how to face challenges in life; these are the lessons that will define you and will govern what you give and take from the world. In all of these areas I feel I gained a great deal from Rundle. For me, Rundle was the place to explore a variety of interests. It pushed me in ways that have recurrently helped me in my life.

YOU WILL BE OFFERED COUNTLESS LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES Under those burgundy blazers are superhero capes!

Leadership comes in all forms, actions, and people. It can be loud and energizing or quiet and thoughtful. At Rundle, we integrate leadership opportunities into the curriculum giving our students opportunities to build confidence and to develop their own leadership style.


If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.


John Quincy Adams

SIN C E 1989

Rundle taught me to take chances, work hard, and forge my own path. The teachers, staff, and my peers, all helped me to learn this. Throughout university and navigating career aspirations, my Rundle relationships continued to support me in finding my own way. I love coaching with the Jr. Cobras program as I get to see the next group of Rundle students develop their skills and create personal bonds that will carry them through their whole lives. I am a proud Rundle alumni and am always excited to see the accomplishments of my Rundle family.
