Since its opening in 2012, students from 33 countries have called Merrick Preparatory School home. International students come for the focused academic attention and small class sizes in one of Canada’s safest communities. Domestic students come to broaden their international understanding and perspective by immersing themselves in a truly international education with students from around the globe. Both domestic and international students reap the rewards of a MPS education with life-long friendships that span the globe, and by gaining entry into world-ranked universities.
Located in historic Merrickville, Ontario (known as "The Jewel of the Rideau") and acclaimed as Canada's Most Beautiful Village by Communities in Bloom, MPS is perfectly located for focused academic study in a small, safe, and caring community. Our school is located in one of the town’s most notable buildings. Constructed in 1861, it overlooks the picturesque Rideau River and Canal System (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and is located just 45 minutes from Ottawa, the nation’s capital city.
