Albert College is a co-educational independent boarding school in Belleville, Ontario. It is the oldest co-ed boarding school in Canada. It was founded in 1857 by the Methodist Episcopal Church as the Belleville Seminary. In 1866 it received its university charter and was renamed Albert University in honour of Prince Albert. In 1884 the school stopped offering university credits and became a high school. It currently has an enrollment of approximately 300 students representing 24 different countries. There have been over 4,000 alumni of the school, representing 43 different countries. The school comprises a Junior School (junior kindergarten to grade 6), Middle School (grades 7 and 8) and a Senior School (grades 9 to 12 and post-graduate) as well as three residences for boarding students.

Boarding students are divided into three houses which are Baker for boys in Grade 7 to 10, Graham for boys in Grade 11 and 12 and Victoria Manor for all boarding girls. There is a Day House for day students, who come mainly from Belleville, as well as the nearby communities of Picton and Kingston. Albert College's facilities include a chapel, dining hall, an "A" (arts) wing and an "S" (science) wing. It is the only independent school in Belleville. Albert College's motto is "Paci Artibusque, Pacis Faveo," or "I favour peace and the arts of peace." Albert College offers a wide range of sports from competitive swimming, to lacrosse, rugby, basketball and others.

The Episcopal Methodists established Albert College at Belleville, Ontario in 1866. [ The Project Gutenberg EBook #6466 of 'The Intellectual Development of the Canadian People, A historical review' by John George Bourinot, House of Commons, Ottawa, February 17th, 1881 ]
