Signature Programs and Projects

Bringing Learning to Life

We have developed a series of unique programs and projects that provide students with further opportunities to explore and discover their true potential.

Junior School

Pièce de théâtre en français (Kindergarten)

Using AIM (Accelerative Integrated Methodology), students take to the stage en français in an annual production that showcases their French language skills.

Math Role Playing (Grade 2)

Working in cooperative learning groups with assigned roles, students are taught how to develop the proper skills to solve situational problems. At a special event, parents are invited to join the class where students proudly demonstrate how they have improved in math.

L’école d’aujourd’hui et celle d’hier (Grade 3)

Students compare school today with that of the past and explore their differences. Using only their imaginations, they then build the school of the future in Minecraft and explain their creation through film.

Foire équitable (Grade 6)

The Foire équitable is a cross-curricular project focused on fair trade, geopolitics, ethics, commerce, values, and decision making. Students develop research, writing, presentation and multimedia skills, all in French.

Middle School

MYP Candidate School

LCC has been approved as a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP). This approval represents the first step in our efforts to become an authorized MYP school and offers validation of our exceptional approaches to teaching and learning at LCC. The MYP is a framework that uses a variety of teaching strategies and styles to help students understand the connections between their studies and the real world and become lifelong learners.

Welcome Trip & Orientation Week (Grade 7)

The two-day overnight experience trip sets the tone for the grade 7 year, as it is the initial opportunity for students, advisors and teachers to get to know one another. For many LCC students, it is one of the most lasting memories of their high school experience. When the students return to school, they go through a week-long program of social, technological and academic activities that introduce them to the life and expectations of the school.

Executive Functioning Skills (Grade 7)

A program designed to help students develop their organizational and learning skills and understand how their brains work.

ROUND SQUARE MEMBERSHIP (GRADE 7 & 8)

LCC is the only school in Montreal to be a member of Round Square. With a membership of almost 180 leading schools around the world, Round Square provides students with leadership, service and global education opportunities. A small group of grade 8 students will have an opportunity to interact and exchange with student leaders around the world at the annual Young Round Square Conference held every April.

LEARNING ENRICHMENT AND DEVELOPMENT (LEAD) (GRADE 7 & 8)

A transformational Learning Enrichment and Development program helping students from kindergarten through grade 11 reach their potential.

LCC READS (GRADE 7 & 8)

A 13-year-old LCC tradition, the LCC Reads committee, made up of students, faculty and staff, reads a selection of nominated novels and then chooses from among them to identify a summer read common to the entire school community. We have been fortunate to have had many of the authors visit the school and speak to students, parents and faculty.

Design Challenge and Experience Trip (Grade 8)

This back-to-school program reconnects both new and returning students, advisors and teachers outside of the regular classroom. The students participate in a one-day adventure course off-site. They problem solve collaboratively and push themselves outside their comfort zones at an outdoor aerial adventure course. In school, the students complete an environmental design challenge, an open-ended project that encourages students to work in teams, ask questions, use research, and think critically and creatively. This challenge takes them through the design cycle and introduces them to the Fab Lab.

History Night (Grade 8)

This history project integrates the skills acquired during the Middle School years and is designed to foster research skills and the ability to analyze and explain how one person can affect change in society. The cross-curricular project also combines information technology and presentation skills.

Solisterra (Grade 8 enriched math students)

Integrating service, environmental principles, math, and physics, grade 8 students learn how to build sustainable structures in an off-grid community in western Quebec.

CSI & Science Fair (Grade 9)

Students learn to apply the scientific method to a real-world problem — a mock murder at the school! Experts teach students about their areas of forensic science.

Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) (Grade 10)

In partnership with the Toskan Casale Foundation, YPI is a year-long collaborative service project with a local grassroots organization, integrating English, French, information and communication technology (ICT) and ethics. Students truly learn the meaning of Non Nobis Solum and volunteerism while honing their bilingual writing, presentation and multimedia skills.

Programme d’enrichissement/Enrichment Program (PREP) (Grade 10)

An interdisciplinary program incorporating the core ideas and literary heritage of the Western tradition — in both languages (i.e., integrating English, French and history). “PREP” students are given a more intense introduction to the research and essay-writing skills they will need to develop for post-secondary studies. This is ideal preparation for students interested in pursuing the IB Diploma Programme.

Design and Innovation (Grade 10)

Students learn to prototype and design their own concepts and are introduced to various techniques and materials. Rapid prototyping practices teach them how to make almost anything while learning about some of today’s most innovative concepts. Students explore their own interests and choose the tools required for their individual streams of design and innovation. They also learn how to document and communicate their process.

International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)(Grade 11)

LCC is the only English high school in Montreal offering the two-year IB Diploma Programme to students in grades 11 and 12. Students who gain requisite standing in the IBDP can pursue direct access to universities in Quebec and around the world.

Certificate of Sustainable Global Leadership (Grade 11)

The Certificate of Sustainable Global Leadership is an initiative to recognize students who have made environmental and global learning a significant priority through their Senior School career. Students voluntarily indicate their wish to be considered for the certificate at the beginning of their grade 11 year and must fulfill a defined set of requirements.

Leadership Courage Canada Skating (Grade 11)
