Limestone District School Board (LDSB)

Kingston is a small city of 125,000 people located on the shores of Lake Ontario near the Thousand Islands tourist region. We are less than a three-hour drive from Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa. As the first capital city of Canada prior to confederation, the city is rich in Canadian history. Home to Queen’s University, St. Lawrence College, and the Royal Military College of Canada, Kingston has been recognized as one of the world’s top student towns by BBC, and as one of the world’s 21 ‘smart communities’ by the Intelligent Community Forum.

Limestone District School Board is your gateway to this amazing environment for living and learning. Our secondary school program welcomes students in Grades 9-12 for single- or multi-semester study. We offer a pathway program to St. Lawrence College, and maintain a close association with the admissions office at Queen’s University. Our homestay program is operated internally through the International Education Department.
