Find out about Quebec private school rankings.

 

There are numerous types of private school and preschool in Quebec, including boarding, day, language immersion, gifted, boys, girls, and special needs. And some of these schools offer a unique curriculum, such as Montessori, Waldorf, Reggio Emilia, and IB schools.

One reason is cultural, based in the traditions and the values of the population. Another is because the province provides subsidies to schools based on enrolment. That support is reflected in the quality of the schools found within the province. It has also encouraged the growth of a student population that is one of the most varied in North America and the world, drawing from a broad swath of the socio-economic, academic, and cultural spectra.

The official language of Quebec is French, and Quebec is also the only province in Canada that has just one official language. In other provinces, students can study in either of the country’s official languages—English and French—though authentic French-language instruction is limited and, for the most part, schools operate within an anglophone cultural context to which French instruction is ancillary.

In Quebec, the opposite is true: most schools provide instruction in French, and English language instruction is limited and ancillary within the public education system. As such, the private schools in Quebec comprise some academic opportunities unique in North America, including that of living and studying in an authentic French cultural and linguistic context. Many families are drawn to schools in Quebec for precisely that reason.

September Private School Expo: Montreal

Families in the Montreal area are invited to attend the annual Our Kids Private School Expo in Montreal to meet with local day schools. The Expo is also a great opportunity for students considering a boarding school in other areas of Quebec, Canada, the USA, or Europe to get a real sense of the environment and culture of each school.
