Quebec has the highest proportion of children attending private schools in North America. As a result, the province is home to a range and depth of school options found nowhere else in the continent. The Quebec context provides more options and opportunities for authentic bilingualism, as well as more reasons to pursue them. In Montreal, for example, both English and French are spoken authentically, and students brush up against them every day in the course of their lives in school and beyond. The benefits of that experience can be profound. That said, language is just the tip of the iceberg. In this guide we offer a primer on studying in Quebec, including detailed, comprehensive information on how to navigate the unique system of education that is found there.
