Earl of March Secondary School is a high school in the suburb of Kanata, in the city of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The school was opened in 1970 and is located in Kanata's Beaverbrook neighbourhood. The school took its name from Charles Lennox, 4th Duke of Richmond and Earl of March, who served as Governor General of Upper Canada in the early 19th century.

Earl of March was the first secondary school built in the area that would eight years later become the City of Kanata (later to be amalgamated within the City of Ottawa). When it opened, Earl of March's catchment area was quite large, encompassing all of what would become Kanata, as well as large portions of West Carleton and Goulbourn townships. As such, Earl of March served for many years as the sole high school for Ottawa's then-nascent western suburbs outside the Greenbelt. The school was also one of the first in the Ottawa area to offer French immersion instruction at the secondary level.

Today, Earl of March serves the north portion of Kanata, and has approximately 1200 students. The school motto is "Tuum Est" or "It is Yours". The Earl of March colours are green, white, gold and black, and Earl of March sports teams go by the nickname of the Lions.

Earl of March currently offers one of the most extensive Advanced Placement Program (AP) courses in Ontario.Fact|date=December 2007 AP is a program that offers high school students the opportunity to receive university credit for their work during high school.
