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 over 40 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.
Our teachers don’t just teach–they inspire. Our students don’t just study– they challenge themselves, expanding their horizons and excelling in ways they never imagined before arriving here. And our entire global community of parents and alumni thrives on the energy that exudes from our beautiful sprawling 250-acre campus.
A lot of people say BCS is like Hogwarts, and while we might not teach magic, there is definitely something magical happening on Moulton Hill. You need to see it to believe it.

Beyond the weekday schedule, our Activities Team works tirelessly to organize special events that bring our student community together. From dances and socials to summer barbecues and winter campfires, there are always memories to be made! Special trips on weekends and breaks offer additional opportunities to travel off campus and explore the Eastern Townships, Quebec, and beyond.
Athletics are an integral part of daily life at BCS, with students participating in either team or individual sports at least five times a week. We call after-school sports ‘crease.’ All students participate in three creases per year: fall, winter, and spring. We have a wide range of options and levels for students who seek the thrill of competition, as well as those who wish to experience a sport for the first time.
With more than 20 different sports to choose from, there is something for everyone at BCS – and we’re always expanding! Both the volleyball and lacrosse creases were brought back by student-led initiatives in the past three years.
Best boarding school in Canada
My four children went to BCS from the US. It was an amazing education and life experience for them. From friends, to sports, to leadership opportunities, everything challenges the students, and my kids are all successful, well rounded adults because of BCS.
BCS has changed my life! I spent 6 years at BCS from grade 7 to grade 12, and wouldn't want it any different. I got the chance to meet people from all over the world, play hockey, meet incredible friends and I got an extremely rewarding scholar experience. I strongly recommend!
BCS is a great school. It gives you a lot of opportunities to become a leader and develop your personal skills. The campus is simply amazing and the staff members care about the students.
I have only been at this school for a little more than a week and I’m loving my experience already. The teachers are very caring, kind, and do everything they possibly can to make sure everyone is on track with their learning and even look out for you like your parents away from home. The students too are very welcoming, they set such positive examples for children and teenagers out there, practicing their passions, and behaving with such kindness and maturity. This is going to be a great first year!
