Merrick Prep School awarded Fortune list World's Leading Boarding School 2023

Merrick Preparatory School has been awarded on the first-ever published Fortune list of the World’s Leading Boarding Schools 2023. This prestigious award is presented by Fortune and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking providers. The ranking list was announced on February 28th, 2023, and can be viewed on the Fortune website.

Fortune and Statista selected the World’s Leading Boarding Schools in 2023 through an independent survey applied to a vast sample of more than 700 participants and 2000 evaluations. The evaluation was based on recommendations collected from heads of boarding schools and heads of admissions of boarding schools, as well as boarding school advisors (agents/educational consultants), alumni, and parents of boarding school students. The leading boarding schools were presented with ratings of 4 and 5 stars.

17 Canadian Boarding Schools made the World’s Leading Boarding Schools in 2023 list and Merrick Preparatory School is the only non-CAIS school listed which is an even greater achievement for us.

Based on the results of the study, Merrick Preparatory School is ecstatic to be recognized on Fortune Education’s list of the World’s Leading Boarding Schools in 2023 and the World’s Leading Boarding Schools in Canada.

Working in the boarding school industry for over 25 years, I am proud to be part of this boutique jewel of the industry,” stated Johanna Ziegler, Director of Admissions. “Merrick Preparatory School is such an amazing caring place for students of different cultural, personal, and religious backgrounds and everyone finds a place in our MPS family and personal success. I believe this is well deserved, seeing how Merrick Prep staff from the cleaner to the headmaster knows, cares, and helps each student to achieve success on their own personal educational pathway. All of our students are accepted to university and prepared for life beyond. Truly proud to be part of this unique and beautiful community.

The ranking consists of 250 top-rated boarding schools around the world, 17 of them being Canadian. In partnership with the market research company Statista, this inaugural list is based on recommendations made by the heads of schools and heads of admissions via a peer-to-peer survey, boarding school consultants and agents, and parents and alumni. These online surveys were conducted between June 30, 2022, and November 15, 2022, generating thousands of recommendations for boarding schools from this group of stakeholders. The evaluation did not count or consider recommendations of one’s own boarding school.

It means the world to me that Merrick Preparatory School is amongst the 250 top-rated boarding schools around the world. I love working for a small school and seeing the difference each staff member makes in each student’s life. Being recognized by Fortune Education, an independent company that publishes independent rankings to help guide the sometimes overwhelming world of education is incredible for a small boarding school like us,” explained Johanna Ziegler.

The Head of Schools and Head of Admissions nominated and evaluated other boarding schools. Parents and Alumni evaluated their own schools. Boarding School Agents and Consultants were able to nominate and evaluate boarding schools. The schools that scored 4 to 5 stars are now featured on this World’s Best Boarding School List which is presented in alphabetical order.

I want to congratulate each one of our staff members, from our cleaners to our kitchen staff, to our team of residential life supervisors, to our teachers, to our admission and administrative staff, to our headmaster and school owners who make sure that our boarding school is a safe and caring place for teenagers to grow and receive an outstanding education on so many levels that sets them up for success in the future. Truly proud to be part of this community,” announced Johanna Ziegler.
