Located in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada, Stanstead College is a private boarding school for boys and girls in Grades 7 through 12. Surrounded by the rolling hills of Quebec and Vermont, Stanstead College is an English school that embraces French in and out of the classroom. With a student population of under 250, our school is also uniquely placed to open doors to top universities and colleges in the United States, Canada and around the world.
In keeping with the school motto – Sanitas, Sapientia, Religio or Health, Wisdom, Integrity – Stanstead College builds its program around the pillars of academics, athletics and student life. Academically, caring teachers and small class sizes are paired with rigorous academics and an advisor support system to help students become aware, self-disciplined young women and men prepared for life after high school. In addition, our University Guidance team works closely with senior students to assist them in determining and achieving their post-secondary goals.
Based on the Quebec Ministry of Education curriculum in Grades 7 through 11, the Stanstead College academic program also offers a Grade 12 option that provides students with an intensive university preparatory experience, including many Advanced Placement (AP) options. As the only Canadian school accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), our graduates receive acceptances from top universities across Canada and the United States as well as internationally.
Stanstead College’s structured athletics program encourages teamwork, fair play, perseverance and, above all, health. Each term, students participate in their choice of athletic options. The school is perhaps most famous for its elite varsity girls and boys hockey teams, which compete at the top high school levels in Canada and the U.S.
Finally, students at Stanstead College enjoy the unforgettable experience of being part of a Canadian boarding school with an international student body. In addition to making lifelong friends, Stanstead students have endless opportunities to express themselves creatively and socially through clubs, weekend activities, school events as well as academic and service trips.

I couldn't imagine a better place for my children to go to school!
The perfect school!! The students grow up with academics, friendships, ethics and family values.
It was very clear from the beginning that Stanstead College was a family affair. We were surprised to hear that teachers volunteered their time out of class for clubs, sports, field trips and tutoring among others and that some teachers and house moms lived on campus with their families. My daughter Jessica participated in more than 11 clubs, service projects and committees. She played seven sports. She was a prefect for two years, and I often wondered how she managed to squeeze so many different activities into her already busy school and study schedule while at the same time getting excellent grades.
