Faculty and Staff

With a staff to student ratio of 6:1 and an average class size of 15, our staff is always ready to help. Our teachers like it so much that most have been here for a dozen years or more!

Our History

Founded in 1993, Westboro Academy has grown to become the region’s premiere school for excellence in bilingual education. Westboro Academy was founded by a small group of parents looking for excellence in bilingual education. By 1998, the school had undergone 2 moves to allow for rapid expansion and finally landed on Brewer Way, near Carleton University, where it stayed until 2019. The current school at 1000 Brookfield Road East was formerly École Gabrielle Roy and we are very pleased to know that we will be here until at least 2039!

Governance

Westboro Academy is a non-profit, registered charity, governed by an elected Board of Directors. Every parent who is a member of the Society may run in the elections to take a leadership role by serving a two-year term on the Board of Directors. Parents are encouraged to be involved in school governance and to share opinions and expertise.
