The Our Kids review of Collège François-Delaplace

our takeEvery school offers something unique to itself, and Collège François-Delaplace is a great example of that. It’s the largest girls’ boarding school in Quebec, though that’s really just the tip of the iceberg. It also offers instruction only in French, creating a truly authentic immersive environment for students intending to learn the language. Within that is an overt attention to culture, and the place that language has within the life of a culture. Students arriving at François-Delaplace will find themselves immersed within a specific linguistic context, though they’ll also find themselves immersed in a specific cultural context, that both of the school itself as well as the community beyond its walls. The attention to language and culture is given from a distinctly unique perspective, one that upends what you find elsewhere in North America. For example, the school runs cultural and language exchanges with other areas of the country—in the past the trips have taken students to BC, Alberta, Ontario, in addition to travel within the Eastern Townships (there are opportunities for service and cultural exchanges overseas as well). While it may be somewhat subtle, the foundational belief is that we all have language, we all have culture, and we all express those things in a variety of ways. Collège François-Delaplace teaches through the values of the Anglican Church, something which is a draw for many families, whether or not they are members of the Anglican faith. Academics are strong, though it’s those other things—the all girls’ environment, the attention to language and culture, the global perspective, the values that underwrite the programs—that families also look to the school for. The ideal student is one looking for a challenge, and seeking a community of shared interest, curiosity, and energy.

    Curriculum Pace Standard-enriched

    • Standard-enriched
    • Accelerated
    • Student-paced

    Broadly-speaking, the main curriculum -- like that of most schools -- paces the provincially-outlined one. This pace is steady and set by the teachers and school. The curriculum might still be enriched in various ways: covering topics more in-depth and with more vigor than the provincial one, or covering a broader selection of topics.

    Flexible pacing:

    Flexible pacing style = offered
    Subject-streaming (tracking)
    Multi-age classrooms as standard
    Ability-grouping (in-class) as common
    Frequent use of cyber-learning (at-their-own-pace)
    Regular guided independent study opportunities
    Differentiated assessment

    What school says about flexible pacing: This information is not currently available.

    Academic Culture Supportive

    • Rigorous
    • Supportive

    A school with a “supportive” academic culture focuses more on process than short-term outcomes: academic performance is a welcomed side-benefit, but not the driving focus. This does not mean the school lacks standards, or has low expectations for its students: a school can have a supportive academic culture and still light the fire of ambition in its students. It does mean, however, the school provides a less intensive culture than schools with a “rigorous” academic classification, and is focused more simply on instilling a love of learning and life-long curiosity.
