PROGRAMS OF STUDY

Preparing for university
Collégial international Sainte-Anne offers five programs of study, two with separate profiles. Students therefore have a choice of six distinct programs, each of which includes general and specific courses. The Elite Sports and Arts Academy allows students to continue to perfect their chosen sport or artistic discipline while pursuing their studies. To obtain a DCS, students must successfully complete all program courses, the Ministry’s uniform examination in language and literature, and the comprehensive examination specific to each program.

CEGEP

WHAT EXACTLY IS CEGEP?

CEGEP (collège d’enseignement général et professionnel) is unique to the Québec education system. Following secondary studies, it is the first non-compulsory stage in a student’s education. CEGEP serves as a transition between secondary school, where students are followed in a standardized program, and university, where they have considerable autonomy.

The DCS (diploma of college studies) may be awarded for a program of general studies over a two-year period, or a program of technical studies over three years. The general diploma provides a pre-university education whereas the aim of the technical diploma is to prepare students for the job market.

Collégial international Sainte-Anne is a private institution offering general programs of study for students interested in a pre-university education. The Sainte-Anne experience is designed to make the transition as smooth as possible by encouraging students to work independently while being guided and supported by a dedicated team of professionals. Studying at Sainte-Anne is the first step in preparing for the future.

R SCORE (COTE DE RENDEMENT)

Universities have adopted an admissions selection policy to the effect that any student who meets the general and specific admission criteria is accepted. Some programs use CEGEP results exclusively in selecting students, while others consider a student’s academic record as one of several admission criteria.

As a result, universities have adopted a method of categorizing students for selection purposes that takes into consideration the strength of each group of students. Adopted in 1995 by Québec universities, this method is known as the R score (cote de rendement).


Complete information about R scores can be found on the CREPUQ website or in this presentation prepared by Brisson Legris.

INSTITUTIONAL POLICY ON THE EVALUATION OF STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT (IPESA)

Given the importance of the evaluation process to students’ academic progress and its impact on their future, the process must meet certain quality criteria that reflect the educational values held by the institution.
