Collège Saint-Charles-Garnier Canada



Saint-Charles-Garnier Collège, founded in 1635 by the Jesuits, is the oldest French college of North America. It is a government funded private secondary school for girls and boys aged between 12 and 17. Saint-Charles-Garnieris recognized in Canada for its high educational standards, as well as its pedagogical and intercultural approach.

The Collègeis located in the heart of historical Quebec, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which takes pride in its hospitality and is also a very safe city. Saint-Charles-Garnieroffers total immersion in a 98% French environment. From around the world, students and teachers of French second language have been coming to the Collègefor over 40 years. They have received linguistic training and courses in the French language and have benefited from the many cultural and leisurely activities of the region. Located near the St.-Lawrence river, the Collègeis also only 10 minutes away from downtown (quick and efficient public transportation) and only 20 minutes from the mountains.

In addition to its French summer program "En francais-  Québec! " (students from 14 to 17 years of age), the Collègealso offers an English Summer Program "English in Victoria! ", BC (14 to 18 years of age). Both these 5 week programs span over July and the beginning of August. The Collègealso offers a program called "French High School Studies " from September to June. Students live either in residence or with a family. A very rigorous selection of the host families is made in order to verify the families values and their motives. Professional supervision not only on a personal level but also on a family and social level is a top priority. International students can rely on an available and considerate personnel, skilled in interpersonal relations and knowledgeable about parents' requests. Saint-Charles-Garnierfocuses on its success, its intercultural enrichment and on the total satisfaction of its

A city of cultural heritage from UNESCO, Quebec City is an environment where everything takes place in French and where leisure activities and cultural visits are close at hand. The half a million inhabitants are proud of their warm welcome values and where meeting differences is considered a great asset in its international development.


French High School Studies


A place for several international students (Mexico, United-States, Germany , Canada), the Collège's first concern is to educate teenagers between 12 and 17 years old in accordance with humanist values and respect of intercultural differences. The world according to Garnier! It's enriching yourself , growing in contact with others while pursuing high school studies in French.

The international students live in host families who are carefully selected by the people in charge of the program. The choice of families will be based on these criterias: moral and family values, leisure activities they practice, and the everyday life (a copy of the grid can be forwarded upon request).

To facilitate the integration of the student into the social and scholar community, a twinning to a quebecker is organized and is supervised by a regular teacher at Saint-Charles-Garnier.
