Students First • L’élève avant tout Since 1909

Grade 9 to 11

The Senior School years are a time of significant development, increasing independence and responsibility for students. Transferring to LCC at this time will help lay the foundation for post-secondary studies, whether your child continues in our Pre-University Program or goes on to CEGEP. We will work collaboratively with you during the admissions process to determine the best educational choice for your child. To do so, we gather as much information about the student as we can, to ensure mutual understanding and informed decisions.

Please review the information below and feel free to contact the Admissions Office if you have any questions or need assistance.
