AdmissionsEdit

Prospective students must pass an entrance exam to be accepted in the school. A maximum of 360 students are admitted each year to form and maintain 10 groups of 36 in each grade. Current tuition is $4,250.[6] They are able to maintain low tuition due to a large average class size of 35 in the first year and 37 in subsequent years.[7]

The school has two dining halls where one has a cafeteria. The cafeteria is open from 7AM to 1PM[8] and includes diverse full-meal choices for $6, a salad bar and a panini station. The school's facilities include a double gymnasium, a rock climbing wall, as well as a workout room, with gym equipment. The school also shares an agreement with the adjacent Centre Étienne Desmarteau allowing the use of two other gyms and a skating rink. It is also home to a variety of sports teams, called les Aigles (the Eagles), such as volleyball, hockey, soccer, basketball, football, flag football, badminton, track and field and many more. The school also features intensive dramatic arts, music and dance programs. Facilities to allow these activities include a 410-seat auditorium, a drama studio, a dance studio, two large music rooms, a computer assisted music room and several small soundproofed music studios.
