Private Christian schools in Quebec can be a great option. They have many potential benefits. For starters, they have a challenging dual-track curriculum, one which gives students a strong grounding in both secular and religious studies. They also have many of the same benefits as other types of private schools, including smaller classes and skilled and attentive teachers.

Quebec is the largest province in Canada by area. It's also Canada's second most populous province.

Quebec is a beautiful province, which is home to the Laurentian Mountains and the Saint Lawrence River. Its most populous city is Montreal, an amazing cosmopolitan city that's an economic and cultural hub. Most Quebec residents speak French, and many are bilingual—speaking French and English.
