AN HISTORICAL AND MODERN ENVIRONMENT
Located on a mountain side, the Collège Bourget campus is divided in different pavilions and sports platforms. This exceptional environment offers a safe haven encouraging an active lifestyle.
A STIMULATING ENVIRONMENT
Talking about the history of Bourget is seeing thousands of students passing through at a too fast pace, all wanting to learn and discover the world. These young people, who are all aiming for a better quality of life for themselves and others, are committed to building a fair and joyous world. It is remembering the excitement at the beginning of every school year, the moments of happiness brought by academic or extracurricular successes, the heart-wrenching goodbyes after five, six, seven, eight or ten years of living together in the unique environment that is the college on the hill.
A CLOSE-KNIT FAMILY
Collège Bourget continuously carves a path for the future of the many children that comes through its door from all over the world.
Our students hail from several regions of Quebec, Ontario, other Canadian provinces, and also from many different continents, all living alongside each other in our school residence. Now part of the UNESCO Schools Project Network, the Brundtland green schools project and Classe Confucius, the college keeps updating its teaching methods to reach as many different types of students as possible.

IMPORTANCE OF THE FRENCH LANGUAGE

Located on a mountain side, the College takes advantage of its exceptional situation through excursions in nature to observe the flora and fauna. These activities allow the students to both learn to appreciate nature and have an on-site experience. Students are also taught in state-of-the-art labs, in which they can rigorously apply the scientific method.
In addition to English and Spanish, Collège Bourget offers Mandarin classes on an optional basis. Students can also take part in cultural and cooperative trips in Canada or elsewhere in the world. To top it all off, we welcome international students who introduce us to different cultures, which encourages open-mindedness and sharing.

“A healthy mind in a healthy body”: this motto has defined the College since its beginning and modern installations allow the practice of many different sports. Moreover, the emergence of high-level sports and the development of Valencia CF Academy contribute to the athletic outreach of Bourget.
