Student Life

A stimulating environment

Collège Bourget fulfills its educational project by creating an enlightening milieu where dreams come true, along with self-development, knowledge and skills acquirement, in a respectful atmosphere. 

In our educational mission, we describe the college as an “environment designed for students’ growth”. We want to educate young people to succeed, but mostly to have a successful life. To achieve this, they have to explore their full potential, to develop strengths and skills that will help them overcome their weaknesses.

The services provided, the quality of the installations and the extracurricular activities, athletic or socio-cultural, give the opportunity to each student to grow and live their passions.

The basic principles

At Collège Bourget, students:

  • Must speak French to honour both our history and our founders’ language. French is rich, colourful and complex, and requires all the necessary attention. Our mindset in this regard is a didactic one: our interventions are constructive and are in no way coercive;
  • Use technology daily and work with an interactive agenda to which their professors are contributing and that parents can easily access;
  • Are taught an English program on par with their level (beginner, advanced level 1, advanced level 2);
  • Read more, in both English and French;
  • Attend a play in French and English every year;
  • Who are looking for an extra challenge can take Spanish and Chinese classes;
  • Have access to modern classrooms and top-of-the-line laboratories, accessible to every level’s students;
  • Participate in a guidance-oriented approach, which gives them a better understanding of themselves and their interests. The college has a micro business and a greenhouse supervised by a professional and dedicated team;
  • Follow a sexual education program at their own pace, in order to build strong and sensible men and women, respectful of who they are and their surroundings, and conscious of their peers’ differences;
  • Take part in a plethora of physical activities in numerous types of installations, including a semi-Olympic pool, an arena, an outdoor synthetic field, an indoor climbing wall, three gymnasiums, a weight room and other outdoor sports fields;
  • Many high-level sports are offered to students through different passion programs.

21st-century education has its share of challenges that require the school and its staff to outdo themselves for the good and success of the students under their watch.

Technology

With the fast evolution of technology, we receive a phenomenal amount of information on a daily basis … or we at least have access to it! We have to manage that information, analyze it and use it in different contexts. Our era breeds the increase of knowledge through technological advances and our students cannot be left behind. Collège Bourget has therefore decided to let technology enter the classroom.

We are obviously aware of the risks that come with technology and the college puts time and efforts in teaching proper digital citizenship. Moreover, research on education has proven that a simple lecture is no longer efficient, we must innovate. The evidence from these researches leads to the use of original didactic approaches.
