Academics for Equestrians 

SOAR in a Supportive Academic Community

At Queen Margaret’s School, your child will develop confidence in the stables, the saddle and the classroom. Our faculty and staff recognize the commitment of highly ambitious athletes and performers. We work with our students to balance their demanding external athletic or performance schedules and their academic life.

In our small classes, specialist teachers support and encourage each student through personalized instruction. Strategies centre on the ways young minds grasp and build upon new concepts.

Regular field trips and outdoor education opportunities offer experiential learning outside of the classroom and stables. Development of time-management, decision-making and other leadership skills encourage independence.

To meet the demand of a diverse equestrian focused community, our Senior School academic program offers an exciting range of courses each year. Courses may include:

•Equine Sciences 10
•Planning 10 with an Equine Career Focus
•Equestrian Athlete 10-12
•Equestrian Management 11 & 12
•Introduction to Horse Training 11 & 12
•Introduction to Instructing 11 & 12

QMS taught me to speak my mind no matter the consequences, I found this skill invaluable. QMS also taught me the importance of friendship and loyalty and these values still hold true for me today.
