Welcome

Fern Hill School is a private school in Ottawa, Ontario, with a long tradition of nurturing young minds to prepare tomorrow’s leaders. Founded in 1981, we offer a unique learning environment for Preschool, Kindergarten and Elementary students, combining enriched educational programs with a wide range of extracurricular activities.

In 2017, Fern Hill School expanded to include the Intermediate Grades and offers programs from the Preschool level (age 3) to Grade 8. Our small classes and low student-teacher ratios enable our dedicated staff to provide a warm, caring environment in which students can safely develop and grow.

Fern Hill School’s academic programs exceed the requirements prescribed by the Ontario Ministry of Education and the Child Care and Early Years Act, 2014 and the City of Ottawa.

Fern Hill School is a proud member of the Ontario Federation of Independent Schools.
