Choose a high school made for your child. Join our community.If it takes a village to raise a child, then it takes a community to teach a child. At Centennial Academy, our community has a shared belief that all students can succeed – if we all work in unison. As the only private high school in Montreal (and in Quebec) that focuses exclusively on helping struggling students master their learning challenges, our community ensures that every student is motivated and confident in their academic capabilities and cultivates effective learning principles to become resilient and autonomous life-long learners. And we’re not just talking about core academics – our robust art, music and athletic programs provide students with the artistic and physical abilities to explore their passions and expand their creativity. Students enjoy modern, calm and comfortable facilities completely renewed in 2020 that inspire a love for learning.
We embrace learning
With or without a learning challenge diagnosis, many of our students have executive functioning challenges related to planning, organizing, starting/stopping tasks. This is not unique as most young teenagers have similar challenges.
Students need opportunities to succeed
We embed effective, evidence and neuroscience-based practices into the learning experience of every Centennial Academy student.
- We focus on establishing consistent learning behaviours, not grades
- We focus on improving student success through constant innovation and strategies based on research
- We focus on student strengths, not weaknesses
- We focus on helping students understand that they can learn and succeed
Together, we provide our students with a supportive community that supports their academic success, self-confidence and well-being.
