The LCC Community:
A Place to Belong... Learn How
The facilities are amazing and the campus is beautiful, but that is not the best of LCC. The diverse and devoted teachers and coaches are second to none. They encourage the students to become themselves and excel in a wide variety of areas. They are our partners in fostering good global citizens and care about each individual student. The opportunities at LCC are unparalleled in Quebec.
Karyn Lassner, Parent of Students in Grades 9 & 11
One of the things that makes LCC unique and outstanding is its diversity. As diversity head, I got to see how international students shine inside and outside of classrooms with their diverse cultural background...Teachers and the community in general really give all students the opportunity to voice their opinions and showcase their uniqueness.

The experience that LCC has provided our daughter is unparalleled. As new parents two years ago, we weren't quite sure what to expect, but LCC has surpassed our expectations in many ways, be it athletics, co-curriculars, and of course academics. But most of all, we are so thrilled with the caring community that our daughter has been welcomed into. The care, social structure and individual guidance that LCC students receive is exceptional.
Carrie Mazoff, Parent of Grade 10 Student
As an international family arriving in Montreal from the United States in 2018, our three children could not have been more warmly welcomed at LCC. From day one, communication from teachers and the administration has been excellent. Every parent knows that feeling when teachers really care about their students - not only in terms of academics, but who the kids are as people...
Arthur Bell, Parent of Students in Grades 2, 6 & 7
LCC is truly a fantastic school. By practically every metric of excellence, it exceeds expectations by maintaining a “students first” attitude and demonstrating scrupulous attention to detail when it comes to the unique differences between students. My experiences with this school have been overwhelmingly positive. In fact, they have kindled a deeper passion for learning in me—one which I will carry with me as I attend institutions of higher learning...

We wanted a learning environment for our children that offered them multiple opportunities to discover and explore their interests both in and out of the classroom while they developed their sense of community and social responsibility, as well as their leadership skills. The faculty and staff have demonstrated their exceptional commitment to doing just that even in the face of unprecedented challenges. Within days of the decision to keep our children safe at home, the faculty were able to pivot and provide meaningful learning experiences virtually, soliciting feedback to improve and adapt to the students' needs...
Shannon Fraser, Parent of Students in Grades 9 & 11
The high level of academic expectations fostered by the faculty and the encouragement to participate in a wide variety of amazing co-curricular activities make LCC unique. Having the support of teachers and coaches makes the challenge of being a student athlete an attainable goal. The LCC Lion Pride will remain with me forever.

My son has been an LCC student since kindergarten, and for the past 11 years he has gone to school everyday with a smile! LCC is a school that engages its students, nurtures and teaches, motivates and promotes curiosity, and instills a love a learning in a warm and friendly environment...LCC’s strong sense of community and culture of caring means that students, parents, faculty and staff work together to ensure every child is learning and growing, involved, and happy. With its excellent resources and facilities, caring faculty and staff, and holistic approach to education, there is no better learning environment in Montreal.
Heidi Drymer, Parent of Grade 12 Student
Being at Lower Canada College for eight years has allowed me to flourish not only academically but as a person as well. The teachers, the students, the environment, the activities and the education make LCC an outstanding school. When you are at LCC, you are not only at a school you are a part of a family. The students and the staff are all supportive, which makes learning both enjoyable and empowering...

At LCC, my child feels valued for who she is and important. She is stimulated and encouraged in school life. My daughter has grown in confidence and her intellectual capability and leadership skills are well recognized. LCC has a great curriculum and great teachers...
During the pandemic, LCC acted swiftly and provided an efficient online learning environment. My daughter was engaged and stimulated. The teachers were amazing and continued to connect with us.
Myat Soe, Parent of Grade 6 Student
I’ve attended LCC for several years, originally arriving as an international student. Upon my arrival, I was greeted kindly and could instantly feel the warm and well-intentioned community surrounding me. Since then, I’ve have had nothing but a positive experience. I take pride in the school’s remarkable facilities, which include the Assaly Arts Centre, the Fab Lab, the fitness centre, and indoor arena, to cater to the unique interests of each and every student...
Victoria Opolot '22
...The LCC community is certainly one that looks out for its students on every level, and one of the best examples is how the school reacted to recent Covid-19 regulations. Overnight, and with absolutely no time to prepare, the faculty and staff members went above and beyond all parents' expectations to ensure the students' online classes and experiences were most positive and productive. It was incredibly impressive to witness how everything unfolded and the emphasis the teachers (and school) placed on making sure that, from the onset, the students felt calm, happy and reassured...
