Located at 7475 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest, College Prep International is a private, non sectarian, coeducational school serving Grades 5 to 11 in the English language.

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
