The CEGEP of Saint-Jérôme or Cégep de Saint-Jérôme in French is a post-secondary education school in the Laurentides region of the province of Quebec


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.


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.
