Day Students

“It gave me the confidence to take bigger risks ... You could dream bigger dreams.”

– Peter Hume ‘84, television writer and producer

Day students make up half of our student population. They arrive each day from the surrounding towns of Huntsville, Bracebridge, Parry Sound, Gravenhurst, and Port Carling.

Rosseau Lake College offers Grade 7 through 12 to approximately 140 students each year. About half are a diverse group of boarding students from around the world, while the rest are day students who arrive each day from the surrounding towns of Huntsville, Bracebridge, Parry Sound, Gravenhurst, and Port Carling. Many of our day students are summer cottagers who joined RLC so they could enjoy a Muskoka lifestyle year round.
