Private School Survey

Dear Parents,

I invite you to participate in an online survey on private/independent school choice for a chance to win 1 of 3 $200 prizes.

This survey is part of an ongoing doctoral project in the Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto. 

All information is strictly confidential and anonymous, and the research has been approved by the Research Ethics Board at the University of Toronto.

The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete and will ask you about the schools you are considering or considered, how you rank different factors when evaluating schools, your values, the qualities you hope a school will foster in your children and a few sociodemographic questions.

All participants will receive a report summarizing the findings of the research.

All participants will also be entered into a random draw to win 1 of 3 $200 prizes – either as a gift card or as a charitable donation in your name to the charity of your choice.

For more information and to take the survey, please visit:

Thank you in advance for your consideration and best regards,

Jean-François Nault
