Agate Private School is a private full-time day and distance learning school established in 1983 by the Ontario Ministry of Education, Canada. Because we believe that the family is the most fundamental social institution and the preferred means of caring for, preparing, and training children to be productive members of society, Agate Private School promotes and supports a family-centered education through our independent study program.
Don't just take our word for it
"Agate School has worked ideally for our family for the last few years. Gayle helped us to navigate through the transition from public school to Agate when some things arose. She was excellent. Agate offers families the opportunity to design their style of learning while also being there to give ample recommendations if that is desired. The school can be hands off or hands on, dependent on what you want. When you ask, they're there to answer questions or offer resources. I recommend Agate School often to those who are new to alternative learning methods and are wanting to give it a go."
