Private Schools

Ontario’s private schools are not required by law to hire certified teachers, although many prefer that teachers be certified.

A list of all of Ontario’s private elementary and secondary schools is available on the Ministry of Education’s website here. Visit the school website for more information about available positions and required qualifications.
