Principal's Message



Ms Mora  joined the Management team in 1979 in the field of Accounting. Her vision for an International profile of the School in "La Belle Province", led her to Hong Kong, Japan & China while on the board of the Canada Hong Kong business Association. In this regard she has been eminently successful.  Her marketing efforts in the Middle East and South America brought a truly diverse Student body. With over 25 languages within a Student body of 120, it is truly a unique environment. Having obtained her education under the British system with Irish based educators, Ms.Mora beleives that discipline is important, thus a code of conduct is in place.

Stories & Testimonials


The Tender-Hearted King

In the land of lost sand

Where time seems to stand

Wandered a lonely man hopelessly

Searching for answers aimlessly


People say not long ago

A king he was but lost his throne

In a fierce fight he fought his foe

With every might in his bone!


After the new king was crowned

His queen was nowhere to be found

He searched and searched every day

But soon got tired and turned gray


One day, the angels came and took him away

Under their wings, in a blinding ray

They whisked his soul to heaven

They flew the skies, all seven


He then woke up in the land of beauty

After all this tragedy, he accomplished his duty

His beloved stood before him with a warm smile

And whispered she'd been waiting for a while

Peaceful Shelter

We all seek for a peaceful shelter

Am I right?

A place of hope, serenity and comfort

We see it in our daydreams

But wouldn't you want to turn this daydream into reality?

No violence, no brutality and no cruelty

After all, we all want a lifetime of bliss don't we?

I create scenarios of a place like this in my head

We all show passion and tenderness to one another

A place where the sun sets and we sleep in peace

Where all our problems can be solved

Where our scars and wounds are healed

A place of acceptance and equality, no such thing as an outcast

When things get rough, we need an escape and this is where we wish to go

An endless beach where the waves come back to kiss the sand

Where the clouds give a chance for the sun to come through and shine

The problem is we all have a different mindset

Our beliefs, aspirations, thoughts and actions differ

Society has corrupted the minds of many

And this is where evil and conflict comes in

We can all wish and dream for such tranquility

But for now, all we can do is hope

Hope for a place that will give us justice

The Future in our Eyes

The future.

A thought that occupies the minds of many

To some it's a pleasant thought to think about

To others, it's a thought used to escape the present

It's the only thing that keeps them going and gives them a reason to stay alive


The present.

It's not always the way you want it to be

It's a place of discomfort

A place where people get put down

Where the feeling of being secure hardly exists

Where society is stuck in an undesirable reality


The future.

Everyone has an image of it in their head

Whether it be a crystal clear or fuzzy image

It is meant to be something to look forward to

But how can it possibly be, when people are barely making it in the present


The present.

Where people are trying to escape the skin they're in

Where people watch their dreams die in front of their eyes

Where the sky gets heavy, and as hard as you try to sail away from the shore

You just keep sinking.


The future.

Where, eventually, a moon will rise from our darkness.

Wake Up

A revolution they say?

Raging like wildfire every other day

March, April, well into May

From Tunis to Jordan to Bahrain

Hearts bleeding, aching with pain

To Yemen, Libya, Egypt, and Syria

Dead bodies decaying with bacteria

Spreading to Algeria and Nigeria

Injustice seems to be the criteria

It all happened overnight

Nations woke up demanding their rights

Willing to die and put up a fight

With all their courage and all their might

For something called democracy

After decades of dictators' hypocrisy

Lies, deceit, and aristocracy

The rich enjoying the feast

The poor begging for the least

Hungry and out in the cold

Scavenging for food covered in mould

They call it the Internet revolution

It started with the Facebook institution

Articles plastered on every text

No one imagined this would be next

Bullets, guns, and innocent blood

Earthquakes, tsunamis, and submerging floods

Innocent tears rolling on scarred faces

Victims vanishing without any traces

Evil and crime have now invaded Earth

Killing humanity, infecting each new birth

Not Alone

On the old squalid Brooklyn street,

Sat a homeless man with nothing to eat.

Foolishness led to his drug dependency,

Call it weak personality or addictive tendency.


He though he could fly and touch the sky,

Forget his troubles when feeling high.

A drug addiction was soon his discovery,

And now he battles a challenging recovery.


His face roofed by a cap on his head,

A puppy on his lap, that needs to be fed.

Regret and shame devour him instead,

His back aches for a comfortable bed.


He met his friend scampering in the rain,

Limping and weeping in severe pain.

His instinct was to take the puppy home,

Alas he had nowhere but the streets to roam.


A silver tag jingles around his neck,

Smeared with grimy fingers when trying to inspect.

A message in despair written in Roman font,

''Please call“ etched in a moment of daunt.

He knows it's not what his pal deserves,

Reminds himself about his shattered nerves.

Tells him to cling on as he's all alone,

Like a king who has lost his golden throne.


Too late for that, their bond is too strong,

Their arms for a nest, it's where they belong.

They say a dog is a man's best friend,

The only way for a broken heart to mend.

We are truly an international school, with 25 languages spoken by our 125 student-strong school family


said Ursulene Farmer-Mora, the school's CEO. "There are no language restrictions with regards to registration. Our school community is so closely knit together, that our international students consider us to be a home away from home" 

As its name suggests, College Prep International is dedicated to preparing students to be academically and emotionally ready for CEGEP, University and whatever challenges they choose in life. 

To achieve this, the school limits class sizes to 10 to 15 students, and combines the best in modern educational technology with a traditional emphasis on academic excellence and application. As well, the school tailors its programs to suit the individual needs and talents of each student. 

“Our impassioned and highly trained teachers use traditional teaching methods and modern practice methodology to engage our students in the learning process”, Mora said. “Teachers are mandated to be firm but fair, and to treat all students with equal dignity, maturity and respect.” 


The College Prep International curriculum covers the full range of arts and sciences, in line with provincial education requirements. It also includes courses in ethics, art, drama, music, physical education, and career planning. The school's emphasis is on fostering academic excellence and initiative among its students, to prepare them for success later in life. 

“Success comes with preparation,” College Prep International's website www.prepinternational.com declares, “The best way to be well prepared and succeed is to devote time to your studies.” 

“it is clearly documented that the probability of a high average in college increases with the time dedicated to studying in high school.” 

Although College Prep International's enrolment is small, the achievements of its students are big. Last year, for instance, the school entered the Greater Montreal Athletic Association soccer tournament and made it to the semi-finals, “due to the fact that we had some excellent soccer players whose development was assisted by our athletics program,” Mora said. 

Another College Prep student placed in the top three in city track and field, despite the fact he was going up against students from much larger schools. 

“Additionally, one of our Grade 8 students received first prize in the video contest promoted by Junior Achievement of Canada and sponsored by Bechtel,” Mora said, indicating she would like all schools in the Greater Montreal Area to embrace the opportunity for their students to participate in this program spearheaded in Québec by Les Entreprises Jeunesse. 

For parents seeking an academically sound, well-rounded, and individualized education for their children, College Prep International is an option worth considering. To find out more, visit www.prepinternational.com or phone 514-489-7287


Failure Made Me Strong

My teachers, my big support, how can I make you proud? My school, my little home, I yearn to make you well-known I appreciate your trust in me to represent you out there Determined, diligent, and persistent as I worked almost non stop Finally, the moment had come when the results were to be announced Keyed up, confident and eager, as I waited to attain my awards Suddenly, everything just went wrong mind confused and completely lost Now, I realize that this is reality once I leave my school, my home, Every day will be a challenge and an experience, where every problem is a lesson and a tolerance This is finally the time to mature and to strengthen my mind and soul I must continue to keep up the fight to win, to stay strong and to visualize my dream.
