Head of School's Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to Merrick Preparatory School! We provide a world-class education for grade 9, 10, 11, and 12 students wishing to gain entry into the finest universities in North America and abroad. We have a 100% university acceptance rate, and over 30% of our graduates receive scholarships exceeding $5,000.
Our school is nestled on the shores of the Rideau Waterway – a UNESCO World Heritage Site - in Merrickville, Ontario, a safe, quiet, and clean village where students can focus uninterrupted on their studies. Home to nationally and internationally renowned artists and named “The Most Beautiful Village in Canada”, the warmth of this historic place provides an idyllic family environment for learning. Just 45 minutes from Ottawa, the nation’s capital, our students have access to Parliament Hill – the seat of our federal government, our national museums, national art gallery, national performing arts centre, Rideau Canal – the world's longest winter skate-way, two universities, two colleges, and the spectacular National Capital Commission’s Gatineau Park. 
Our boarding students enjoy luxurious rooms with en suite bathrooms, fine dining, and some of the best teachers this country has to offer. Our day students share classes with students from around the world, providing a dynamic and truly international education. With an average class size of 10 students and over 140 hours of in-class instruction per credit course, our students excel and reach beyond their grasp. Individualized and focused attention, academic differentiation combined with personal and social growth, result in students who become courageous, resilient, and compassionate global citizens.
Come join the Merrick Preparatory School family. Your success starts here!

Kevin Farrell, Head of School
