Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne

The Collège Bois-de-Boulogne is a public pre-university and vocational college located on Bois de Boulogne Street in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It has an enrollment of approximately 2,700 students in 7 pre-university and technical programmes and 4400 participants in adult education and corporate programmes.[1] The staff consists of over 450 people.

History[edit]

The college traces its origins to the merger of several institutions which became public ones in 1967, when the Quebec system of CEGEPs was created.

Programs[edit]

The Collège Bois-de-Boulogne offers two types of programs: pre-university and technical. The pre-university programs, which take two years to complete, cover the subject matters which roughly correspond to the additional year of high school given elsewhere in Canada in preparation for a chosen field in university. The technical programs, which take three-years to complete, applies to students who wish to pursue a skill trade. In addition Continuing education and services to business are provided.

The Collège Bois-de-Boulogne is considered as one of the best public cegeps in the province of Quebec. One of the main reasons being that 50% of the school's students come from private secondary schools. Bois-de-Boulogne is one of the very few public cegeps that are considered comparable to Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf and Marianopolis College. 85% of the school's graduating students get accepted in the program of their choice. Bois-de-Boulogne also has one of the highest percentage of students to get accepted in top programs such as medicine, law, architecture, pharmacy, engineering, etc.

Facilities and features[edit]

The Collège occupies two buildings: le pavillon Saint-Paul, which was formerly the Collège Saint-Paul, and le pavillon Ignace-Bourget, which was formerly the Ignace-Bourget normal school.
