Ridley: A Secret Garden

This short documentary invites us inside Ridley College, a private boarding school founded in 1889 and located in St. Catharines, Ontario. This film goes beyond the walls and groomed lawns of this institution to show how it molds its students into the leaders of the future. Although the private school system has its critics, Ridley continues to uphold a strong British tradition with its emphasis on moral training, strict supervision, a strong academic education, conformity, sports and relative isolation from the community.
