Appleby College is an international private school (grades 7-12) located in Oakville, Ontario, Canada, founded in 1911 by John Guest, a former Headmaster of the Preparatory School at Upper Canada College. Guest dreamed of establishing a small boarding school in the country, and did so with the support and financial assistance of Sir Byron Edmund Walker, a prominent Canadian businessman and patron of the arts. Today, Appleby is a co-educational day and boarding university-preparatory school, with a curriculum based around the liberal arts. It is situated on Lake Ontario in Oakville, Ontario, roughly 50 kilometres west of Toronto. Students are drawn primarily from Oakville, Burlington and Mississauga, but boarding students come from other parts of Canada and throughout all continents of the world. Annual tuition for boarding students can be as high as $45,000 CAD, making Appleby College one of the most expensive boarding schools in the world.[1] This is in comparison with the most expensive school in the United States, Middlesex School, which has an annual tuition of $31,075 USD [2]. Appleby is a member of the International Round Square Organisation and the Canadian Independent Schools Athletic Association. Appleby is accredited by the Canadian Educational Standards Institute and is recognized as one of Canada's leading independent schools.

Pillars of Strength and Academics

Appleby has identified five Pillars of Strength upon which to concentrate: Community Spirited, Technologically Innovative, Academically Vital, Globally Inquisitive, and Actively Engaged. Appleby students and faculty use technology in virtually every aspect of student life (currently IBM X41 Tablets and SMART Boards). Appleby was the 2nd school in North America to fully utilize laptops and other technology in every angle of the school, after Cincinnati Country Day School. Each boarding room and classroom is equipped with internet ports and power outlets. A large portion of the assignments are done on the computer and subsequently emailed to the teacher. Cincinnati Country Day School (abbreviated CCDS) is a private school located in Indian Hill, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio. ...


Boarding

As well as being a day school, boarding is offered from Grades 9 though 12 and there are numerous international students from over 20 countries attending Appleby. When the school first opened in 1911, boarding was mandatory. Over time as the Greater Toronto Area grew, Appleby became less of a "school in the country" as originally envisioned by John Guest, and more of a mixed day and boarding school in the suburbs. Fewer than half of students now board. However, in keeping with a tradition that has been maintained since 1911, all students in their "Senior Two" (Grade 12) year are required to go into residence. Approximately 240 students are currently in residence, the majority of whom are in Senior Two.

There are four houses in which Appleby's boarding students reside, and with which the day students are affiliated: Baillie House; Walker House; Colley House; and Powell's House. Baillie House is a girls' residence and named after a prominent family that has attended and supported Appleby for several generations. Walker House was one of three boys' residences before co-education and is now a girls' residence, and is named for the school's original benefactor, Sir Byron Edmund Walker. Colley and Powell's are boys' residences and are named for former Appleby Masters. T.B. Colley taught at Appleby for 35 years and was housemaster of School House, which was re-named in his honour in 1949. Vernon Powell received the Military Cross and was killed in action during World War I. Sir Byron Edmund Walker, C.V.O., LL.D., D.C.L.. (1848-1924) was a Canadian banker. ... “The Great War ” redirects here. ...

Residences

There are four residences at Appleby: Walker, Baillie, Colley, and Powell's, each with its own distinct structure and style. Both Colley and Powell's house are boys' residences and are on the west side of campus while Walker and Baillie are girls' residences and are closer to the east side of the campus. Throughout the year each house is responsible for hosting charitable events as well as open houses, for other boarders to attend, and chapel weeks, for the entire school to attend. Each house has three designated faculty members who reside within it (Housemaster, Asst. Housemaster, and the Residential Don) as well as a house prefect and house executive committee composed of students that are responsible for keeping dialogue between faculty and students within the house open.


Students are assigned affiliation with a boarding house in the third term of Middle Two (grade 8) or prior to entry into Upper One (grade 9). Membership of the houses can be distinguished by house ties, which depict the house colours and are worn by students as an optional substitute for the school tie. Each house is represented by an animal that is displayed prominently by a large mural in each of the houses. Baillie House is represented by a tiger, Colley House by a bulldog, Powell's House by a lion, and Walker House is represented by a grizzly bear.

Academic Facilities

Due to the growth of the College, the Memorial Classroom Building is no longer the only area offering classroom space. There are four science labs located by the Appleby Arena and several more located on the science wing. Each of the houses, Walker beingthe exception, are also home to classrooms that are located on the basement level of the houses. All classrooms at Appleby are equipped with internet and power supply ports for students as well as a SMART Board. The Raymond Massey Library (currently in its final year as its contents will be transferred to the new student commons to be completed in winter 2007) is home to over 1200 print resources as well as providing student access to more than twelve internet subscrition resource databases. The SMART Board interactive whiteboard is a large, touch-sensitive display that is placed on a wall or floor stand in classrooms, meeting rooms, boardrooms and other places where people gather to meet, teach, train and present. ...


Chapel

The John A.M. Bell Chapel has been an important aspect of the Appleby community since it's erection, and every day students attend either following their first period class (9:00-9:15) or after their second period class (10:00-10:15). Canon Robert Lennox is the current Chaplain and though an Anglican chapel, many other faiths' religious texts and teachings are incorporated in the spirit of inclusiveness and religious education. The Chapel serves as a gathering place for the Appleby College community, especially in times of great joy or great sorrow.


Northern Campus

The Machlachlan Northern Campus, located at Rabbitnose Island in Temagami, Ontario, hosts two sets of trips annually. In the winter months, January and February, Upper Two students take part in five-day winter survival trips that are based off the island. These trips are lead by both Senior One and Two instructors and are over seen by faculty members. In the Summer months, May and June, Upper One students take part in seven-day canoe trips that are also based off the island. An optional trip utilizing the campus's facilities is also offered the week following Closing Day. Temagami is a town in northeastern Ontario, Canada, in the District of Nipissing on Lake Temagami. ...


Athletics

In addition to co-curricular activities and the Northward Bound program, each Appleby student is required to participate in the school's athletic program. Grade nines and tens (Upper Ones and Twos) must have three full terms of sport, and grade elevens and twelves (Senior Ones and Twos) must have two (the other term must be spent doing community service or engaging in a full-time arts activity).


Interscholastic competition is offered in soccer, field hockey, swimming, basketball, hockey, tennis and rugby, among others. Ironically, two of the longest standing and formerly most prominent Appleby team sports are no longer offered. Cricket was played since the school opened, and was discontinued in 1992. There was a movement within the student body to re-instate cricket as an instructional sport in the 2004–2005 year. Football was also played since early in the school's history, and was discontinued in 2005. This article is about the sport. ... Diagram of a Canadian football field. ...


Football

Appleby's greatest period of success in football was during the 1960s when the first team achieved a string of almost unbroken winning seasons. The best seasons were 1966 and 1967 when the team went undefeated in inter-scholastic play. The success of the 1967 team, in particular, who defeated not only Appleby's Old Boys in an exhibition game, but each of the first teams of the "Little Big Four" schools, Upper Canada College, St. Andrew's College, Ridley College and Trinity College School, led to Appleby joining the CISAA, where all of Appleby's different sports teams have competed since.

Appleby's first football team achieved its next and last undefeated season in 1985, under the coaching of alumnus Dave Singer. This was the school's only CISAA championship for first team football. The school had also fielded strong teams in the early 1980s, when former CFL star Jeff Fairholm played. Jeff Fairholm (b. ...


Beginning the mid 1990s, the program’s senior team, then coached by Jim Mackay, began contending for the Grey Cup against Hillfield Strathallan College. Appleby and Hillfield would play on each school’s homecoming weekend, with the overall winner being decided by total points for and against. The rivalry ended in 2002 when Hillfield discontinued their program. During the same period the program’s junior team experienced great success, which peaked in 2000 when Appleby finished in second place with a 5 wins and 1 loss record. The team made and hosted the championship game; however, the juniors unfortunately lost to Ridley College 7 to 6.


With the switch to a four-year high school program in 1987, Appleby struggled to field competitive football teams, eventually withdrawing from CISAA competition. In 2003, the senior team re-entered the CISAA conference, when all Ontario high schools switched to the four-year high school program. Sadly, after the 2004 season the school elected to end the program. The program's Alumni hope it will eventually be brought back.


Soccer

Soccer remains a popular sport for boys and girls, played in the fall for boys and spring for girls. The boys first soccer team has also enjoyed considerable success in CISAA competition, winning consecutive CISAA championships in 1982 and 1983 under coach Colin Revill. Under the coaching of Tosh MacFarlane, Appleby again won the CISAA championship in 1986 and then three straight championships between 1990 and 1992. Soccer redirects here. ...


Swimming

Appleby enjoyed tremendous success in swimming in the 1970s winning 4 out of a possible 5 CISAA first team championships between 1976 and 1980 under coach and long time Appleby geography teacher John Berriman. The swim team was also extremely successful more recently winning the CISAA co-ed championships each year between 1997 and 2000, as well as 2004–2007, under coach Sheila Kuyper and Brooke Millman.

Rugby

Rugby has been a prominent spring sport since the early 1970s, and continues to be popular for both boys and girls. The school's period of greatest success for rugby was under the coaching of former physics teacher Jim Washington, who coached the first rugby team from 1970 to 1989, achieving a winning record every season during that period. The years between 1973 and 1985 were particularly dominant, with the first team going undefeated almost every year and winning 11 out of 13 CISAA championships. More recently, the first boy's team won the 2005 Canadian Association of Independent Schools tournament held at Bishop's College School in Lennoxville Quebec.

Rivalries

Though officially no rivalries exist between Appleby College and other schools, Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ontario is often viewed as a potent rival of the Blue Dogs. The Ridley Tigers are viewed as among the top teams in CISAA Athletics, and thus matches against this rival are met with heightened intensity.

Boys athletic teams at Appleby tend to have stronger rivalries with schools stemming from Appleby's history as an all-boys school. Upper Canada College in Toronto and St. Andrew's College in Aurora are deemed as important rivals of the Blue Dogs in boy's competition. Upper Canada College (UCC) is a private elementary and secondary school for boys in downtown Toronto, Canada. ... St. ...


Arts

In addition to both Athletic and Northern Campus commitments, Appleby College students are expected to pursue interests in the arts. Several options are available to students in this regard, as many students have artistic interests that go beyond the conventional arts of visual, vocal, and dance. Arts co-curriculars are varying and many hold a deep rooting in Appleby's storied history.


One such co-curricular is the Appleby College Model United Nations club (ACMUN), having participated for many years in various local and international competitions, in recent years the school has gained international recognition for the success of their programme. In 2007 a small delegation from Appleby attended the Lake Erie International Model United Nations Conference (LEIMUN) and were awarded the top prize for small delegations in attendance with six of the seven student delegates receiving awards of distinction in their councils. Appleby College students have also found much success on the university Model United Nations circuit with several students winning awards of distinction at the 2007 York University Model United Nations Conference (YMUN). Appleby students also annually attend both the North American International Model United Nations (NAIMUN) in Washington, D.C. and the Students' League of Nations (SLN) in Geneva, Switzerland; many Appleby students have been recognized for distinction at these conferences.
