Boarding schools in Quebec

French immersion at a whole new level

Boarding schools in the province of Quebec present a wide variety of experiences, ranging from schools in Montreal to schools in the countryside to boarding schools deep in the heartland of the province.

Some of the most popular Quebec boarding schools are located in the rolling eastern highlands of the province, where students can immerse themselves in studies away from the diversions of big city living. Students can also enjoy expansive boarding school grounds that participate in and help preserve Quebec's natural beauty.

Quebec boarding schools immerse you in school life like you could never be at a regular day school. You'll end up learning things in boarding school you would never learn in any other environment. "Life skills" are one of those intangibles that are difficult to measure but boarding school grads themselves attest to the value of boarding school in furthering them in much more than just academics.

"We stand up for each other and it's always great to know that you have someone you can depend on."

—Jen, Bishop's College School, Sherbrooke, Quebec.

One Quebec boarding school alumnus offers an example of a lesson possible only in boarding schools. "I learned lessons at the communal dinner table, to switch personalities, to remember manners and courtesy. It was a small thing that took a bit of work but it will never leave me."

Because of the family-like environment within a boarding school there are unique lessons in community creation as well as independence. These can include a unique closeness with guidance counselors, a strong emphasis on public speaking and presentation, as well as the unique lessons in time management that are only possible within a boarding school environment. Boarding school students have a unique advantage in the first year of university, of course, already well versed in how to deal with life away from home and how to handle independence and responsibility.

As one Quebec boarding school headmaster says, "You learn to handle yourself."
