At a Montreal boarding school you'll participate in a tradition that has produced some of the finest leaders in Quebecois, Canadian and international society. On top of that, you'll be living in a great city, a summer paradise and any avid skier's or snow boarder's dream.
There are few places in North America that are more wonderful to live in than the city of Montreal. From lively Rue Ste Catherine to Old Montreal to Parc Mont Royal there is a wealth of things to do. Not to say that boarding school won't present you with a wealth of stimulation! Boarding school offers challenging teachers, competitive athletics and of course, great friendships.
Like the city, Montreal's boarding schools offer the best of several different worlds. You'll mix with students from many of the world's cultures. Montreal boarding schools offer you a chance to play and work with some of the latest technology and in some of the finest sporting facilities. On top of that you are exposed on a daily basis to two of the world's most used languages, French and English; you can't help but become fluent in both.
"They always say you make the best friends in university, but really, being a boarder is basically the same thing."
—Emily, Canadian boarding school student.
