The list of private school graduates reads like a Canadian Who's Who. Ridley College, founded in 1889 and located in St. Catharines, Ontario, contributes its share. This film goes beyond the walls and groomed lawns of this institution to show how it molds its students into the leaders of the future. Although the private school system has its critics, Ridley continues to uphold a strong British tradition with its emphasis on moral training, strict supervision, a strong academic education, conformity, sports and relative isolation from the community. An objective film contributing to the ongoing debate about alternatives in education.
