The school levels in Quebec are divided differently than those of other Canadian Provinces and the United States. Nevertheless, when the systems are compared, we discover the total number of years are equivalent.

What is a Cegep?

The acronym CEGEP is French, translated “College of General and Professional Teaching”
Students in Quebec attend High School from Grade 7 to Grade 11. Following their graduation from Grade 11, they continue their studies at a Cegep for two years, then at a University for three years - if they remain in Quebec. There are English and French Cegeps throughout Quebec.

What about College Prep?

Students from College Prep International – should they wish to continue their studies in Quebec – apply to one of several Cegeps by March 1st of their Grade 11 Senior year. Most apply to Dawson, Vanier, Marianopolis or John Abbott, depending upon personal interests, programs and locations.
We do everything possible to guide and advise our students so that they may do everything necessary to be accepted into the Cegep of their choice. Nevertheless, they must put in the effort and work as Before accepting a student, the Cegep will examine the students Ministry of Education Transcript of final marks received in Grade 10 (Secondary 4) and Grade 11 (Secondary 5). Depending upon the program of studies desired, the Cegep may pay more attention to Mathematics and/or Science marks.
There are also private Cegeps such as TAV, Centennial, O’Sullivan, and LaSalle to which students may apply.
