Domestic Boarding Students

"I’m going to be starting a minor in geoscience, and I don’t think I would have done that without going to RLC.”

Caroline Bissonette ‘22, University of Toronto’s Rotman Commerce class of '26

Rosseau Lake College is an ideal location for Canadian and US students who are looking for a highly academic, experiential outdoor education in a rural setting with small class sizes.

RLC helps students find their strengths, build confidence, and nourish their potential through a personalized learning environment that will prepare them for university, other post-secondary opportunities, and real world experiences.

At RLC, boarding students access: 

A 24/7 educational environment: RLC offers a continuous and immersive educational environment. This allows for more extended learning hours, greater access to resources, and increased opportunities for academic support. 

A sense of Independence and growing responsibility: Living away from home fosters independence and teaches students to take responsibility for their daily activities, time management, and personal belongings.

A diverse community: With students from across Canada and around the world, RLC offers a rich and multicultural community, exposing students to different perspectives and fostering global awareness. 

RLC’s amazing location on Lake Rosseau offers so many opportunities for outdoor adventure and exploration, which have always been a big part of my life. I often feel like the outdoors is my natural habitat!

– Michael, Current Student

A close-knit community: Close relationships with peers and faculty throughout the day creates a supportive and tight-knit community, enhancing the school experience. A focus on extracurricular activities: Students have time to explore and develop their talents and passions beyond the classroom. 

Access to a dedicated faculty: Teachers and residence life staff live on campus, allowing greater access to academic support, mentorship, and guidance. This close interaction with educators contributes to a more personalized learning experience. 

Outside of class, boarding students have time to participate in leadership opportunities, character education programs, and community service activities that contribute to their personal growth.
