Choosing the right high school is a big decision, and we would first of all like to thank you for considering Yitzhak Rabin High School. Our goal is to make your admissions experience easy, informative, and friendly. We invite you to get to know our school, meet our dynamic faculty, interact with our diverse and talented student body, and tour our beautiful school campus.

Yitzhak Rabin High School offers many of the same academic and extracurricular opportunities found at the finest Ottawa public and independent schools, combined with a uniquely innovative Judaic studies curriculum. Our approach to all learning is guided by an open-minded spirit of intellectual inquiry that encourages students to challenge, ask questions, and work at the highest academic and intellectual levels.

We are deeply committed to accommodating and challenging both students who have attended Jewish day schools and those from public or independent secular schools who may not yet know any Hebrew. The friendly and accepting nature of our student body and faculty makes all of our students feel comfortable whatever their religious background or learning style. We believe that students should be proactive in creating their own academic education.

Tuition for the 2010-2011 school year will be $10,250 CDN ($9,750 plus a $500 laptop maintenance fee). Yitzhak Rabin High School will provide financial assistance to eligible families who meet application and financial aid deadlines, based on individual need and the availability of funds. We will do our best to ensure that no qualified student is prevented from attending the school for monetary reasons.

If you are interested in applying to Yitzhak Rabin High School for the 2010-2011 school year, or would like to apply for financial assistance, please contact Cynthia Bates, Principal, to arrange a school visit.
