Welcome to The Armbrae Academy Online Application

Welcome to Armbrae Academy and thank you for your interest in our school. We encourage you to take the time to explore our website and to discover for yourself, why Armbrae Academy is known as the best small school in Canada.

Founded in 1887, Armbrae Academy is a co-educational Pre K to grade 12 day school with 265 students. Armbrae offers an exceptional educational experience and builds a connected, inclusive, inspiring environment for our students, parents, alumni, faculty, and staff. It is a vibrant and caring community that fosters a deep sense of community wellbeing.

Armbrae is located in the heart of historic Halifax, Nova Scotia - a vibrant and growing Canadian city that is well known as the Capital of the Province, business and government centre and world class tourism destination. 

A growing school, Armbrae has a great deal of experience in welcoming new students and parents to our community. Aided by our dedicated Armbrae Parents Association (APA),  we are happy to assist new families as they settle into new surroundings.  Culture and Community are the hallmarks of Armbrae, and we strive to ensure that our students, parents, staff, and visitors feel like they are members of a family. Fostering this sense of belonging and culture of kindness comes from hiring, training and retaining the right mix of people who are extremely talented at what they do and are committed to developing a positive school climate.

Armbrae Academy is a member in good standing of the Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS), and is accredited by The Ministry of Education and Early Childhood Development for Nova Scotia to grant the Nova Scotia high school leaving certificate.
