The CEGEP of Saint-Jérôme or Cégep de Saint-Jérôme (CSTJ) in French is a post-secondary education school in the Laurentides region of the province of Quebec. There's three campuses affiliated to the CSTJ, the main one is located at Saint-Jérôme. The two others are in Mont-Tremblant and Mont-Laurier, in the Hautes-Laurentides

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. The building had been a Catholic school directed by the sisters of Saint Anne. The Cégep de Saint-Jérôme gained its independence in 1970. At its start it had two wings, wing A built in 1929 and wing B built in 1963. In the 1970s, three new wings were constructed.[1] In 2007, a new wing was constructed for the Centre d'études universitaires des Laurentides, a branch campus of the Université du Québec en Outaouais. In 2017, the K wing has been inaugurated to respond to the growing number of students in the college.

Programs[edit]

The Province of Quebec awards a Diploma of Collegial Studies for two types of programs: two years of pre-university studies or three years of vocational (technical) studies. 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.
