    Gayle of Agate Private School is passionate about supporting home schooling families. She offers membership benefits for families not only in Ontario but also for families around the world. Gayle also does a lot of speaking on the subject of education so you can find some of those videos under her personal YouTube channel under the name Gayle Hanlon.

    Agate School has worked ideally for our family for the last few years. Gayle helped us to navigate through the transition from public school to Agate when some things arose. She was excellent. Agate offers families the opportunity to design their style of learning while also being there to give ample recommendations if that is desired. The school can be hands off or hands on, dependent on what you want. When you ask, they're there to answer questions or offer resources. I recommend Agate School often to those who are new to alternative learning methods and are wanting to give it a go.

    I was a student at Agate private school and I loved the one on one learning and the self pace option.

    Agate Private School is the school we needed for our son when we needed it decades ago. We're glad it existed. Gayle appreciated our son's artistic temperment, which was not the case for public school.

    This is an old location, the new address is 43 Chaplin Ave, St Catharines. Phone number is the same. I've notified them that they need to update this listing and move it to the new address.
