Our History

Westboro Academy was founded in 1993 by a small group of parents looking for excellence in bilingual education at the elementary level. The school began with one Grade 1 class of seven students in a small building in the neighbourhood of Westboro. By 1998, the school had undergone 2 moves to allow for rapid expansion and had landed permanently in our current location on Brewer Way, near Carleton University. Westboro Academy had grown to a full JK to Grade 6 School with an enriched bilingual curriculum and a reputation for academic excellence. The final expansion was in 2005 when an intermediate program was introduced to meet the needs of Westboro families looking for a Grade 7 and Grade 8 program, maintaining the founding core values of Excellence, Integrity and Respect.
