The Séminaire de Sherbrooke, also known as Séminaire Saint-Charles-Borromée, is a private educational institution located in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada. Founded in 1875, the Séminaire is one of the oldest institutions in the city.
In 1954, the original Séminaire Saint-Charles-Borromée became Université de Sherbrooke. Université de Sherbrooke was the first Roman Catholic and French-language university in the Eastern Townships. Following the establishment of the university, the Séminaire de Sherbrooke was reborn in 1959. In 1968, classical courses (French: cours classique) were aborted and the institution became the responsibility of the Ministry of Education of Quebec.
In 2005, the charter was amended, the positions of President (originally named by the Diocese of Sherbrooke) and the Director General (secular function) were merged into President and CEO. For the first time since the beginning of its existence, the Séminaire was directed by a layman, André Métras.
