A school rich in tradition and built on an appreciation for the outdoors
Sedbergh at a glance
Founded in 1939 Situated on 1200 acres 95% boarding school Boarding population 80 Small class sizes Grades 7 – 12 Students are prepared for CEGEP after Grade 11 or university after grade 12 100% university placement
Sedbergh School was founded in 1939 by Thomas J. Wood, Vera Wood and Frank Duxbury. Both T.J. Wood and Frank Duxbury had been teaching at Ontario’s Lakefield College School when they decided to venture out on their own. With the help of Chief Jack Rabbit Johannsen, a legendary outdoorsman, Wood and Duxbury chose the 1,200 acres in Montebello, Quebec as the campus for their new school. With this spectacular setting, the school’s programming utilized the vast acreage of wilderness as a venue for more than just a traditional education. The modern day school continues many of the outdoor traditions of the school’s founders, while challenging each student academically and preparing them for university and their future success. Sedbergh School has always been an inclusive and diverse school. Originally a boy’s school, in 1989 girls joined the school’s community. Further, the school’s diversity is built by students from a wide range of socio-economic and international backgrounds. Currently, the school is comprised of students from a minimum of 10 countries.
