In 1788 Kings Edgehill school in Windsor Nova scotia was born.  It is the oldest private school in the both the common wealth and Canada.  It sits on 75 acres of land right in the heart of Windsor.  It has superior sports programs, academic program and most recently continues to add to the fine arts program through dance.  It has a comprehensive English as a second language program and every single student participates in daily sports and cadet duties.  Kings Edgehill Cadet Corp 254 is the second largest Cadet Corp in Canada.   Being private, one must pay out of pocket for tuition which averages 18,000 a year for non-boarders and 38,000 for boarders.  35% of students have access to some form of scholarship and if a strong potential student is able to show need, there is a pretty good chance they will qualify for scholarships.  Some may feel this is a lot of money, but studies have shown, high school years are the more formative years than College or University.  This is where educational habits and ideals are developed, making it a solid investment in one’s child’s future.   This school alone is a good reason to move to the area of Windsor Nova Scotia, and many do.  Housing is still very affordable, the commute to Halifax is only 45 minutes and one will be able to take off another five minutes once full highway twinning is complete.  Windsor is an up and coming desirable bedroom community to Halifax, if not to move one’s family in, to at least invest.
