The tradition of boys' schooling in Quebec has a long, impressive history. In keeping with that is a culture that the schools, and those of neighbouring provinces, participate within, including athletic rivalries at times dating back a century or more. 

The benefits of an all-boys environment

Just as some girls’ may require more encouragement to enter STEM studies, given the traditional gender expectations that are still reflected in academic and professional life, some boys benefit from a greater attention to the development of character and social identity. Through specific attention to aspects of their students’ emotional lives, as well as positive mentorship, boys’ schools seek to help students move beyond the stereotypical expectations that may be made of them in other environments. In contrast to what was common in the early part of the last century, boys schools have adopted many of the goals that arose within the girls’ schools. Paraphrasing Deryn Lavell in her description of Bishop Strachan School, they seek to provide an opportunity for each boy to understand who he is, his place in the world, to gain independence, to have a chance to learn leadership skills, [and] "to find a voice in a multiplicity of voices."    

An environment of possibility

Absent from girls, boys perceive new areas of opportunity, such as in the arts, or other areas of student engagement that, in coed schools, can unwittingly encourage gender segregation and performance expectations. In all-boys schools, students are more likely to engage in the arts and the social sciences, and feel less pressure to adopt/display stereotypically male behaviors. Most importantly, boys’ schools can allow specific kinds of discussion that, in other settings, boys may not be readily exposed to or, when they are, may feel an acute pressure to avoid.
