Students choose boarding at BCS because they want to be challenged academically, athletically, creatively, and personally in our unique bilingual and multicultural environment.
If you ask anyone on Moulton Hill to condense the BCS experience into a single word, you will invariably hear one resounding answer: family. Parents take comfort in the complete care provided to their children by a faculty that participates fully in school life. Teachers and Houseparents provide personal and academic support, daily structure, and ensure a vibrant experience where our students’ life skills blossom within a safe, positive, and nurturing community.

As a student at BCS, you will live, learn, work, and play alongside internationally-minded peers from nearby Canadian towns and faraway continents. Students from 37 different countries add tremendous richness to the boarding experience, and each house is a well-balanced reflection of our diverse school community. The resulting friendships often lead to students hosting each other at their respective homes and to lifelong friendships. 
International students make up nearly 40 percent of our student body, and this cultural diversity is one of our greatest strengths.

Your Room

Each two-student room provides desks, beds and storage. Residences are equipped with common room spaces, Wi-Fi/Skype accessibility, telephones, TVs, DVD players, couches, areas for socializing and kitchen areas where students can prepare food at night or on weekends. Most houses also run their own snack shops. 

How neat do I have to keep my room?

Each morning BCS students are required to make their beds, pick up and tidy their rooms, place dirty clothes in a laundry bag and clear the floor and desk of any mess. Our BCS housekeeping staff provides daily cleaning service. But don’t just close the door and try to hide the mess... we check the rooms regularly! 


On your first day on campus you will be paired up with another student who will be your roommate for the year. BCS takes great care in matching students with one another based on multiple factors such as age, nationality, interests and personality. BCS graduates consistently tell us that their relationship with their roommate was one of the most important relationships of their lives.

What is Prep?

At BCS, homework time is called “prep.” BCS students do their “prep” in their rooms each evening from Monday to Thursday and on Sunday.  Students also have the option to do their prep in the Library. Our day students do their prep at home or in the Library.

Meals and Nutrition

During the week, breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the Ross Hall Dining Room.  Each student makes their own selection from 3 or 4 options of healthy meals that are being served. There is always a vegetarian option, a selection of salad vegetables and 2 different soup options. Students can also visit Doolittles canteen for sandwiches and other snacks during the day.

On weekends, Ross Hall is open for brunch and dinner. Breakfast on weekends can be taken in residence as all houses offer items such as cereals, bread, bagels, milk, etc. On weekends, houses at BCS will oftentimes organize a barbeque, a trip to a restaurant or order pizzas for a change and some fun.
