Quebec Students: CEGEP or Grade 12?

Unlike the rest of Canada, where secondary school ends with Grade 12, Quebec secondary school ends at Grade 11. Since 1969, the path for students who wish to continue their education is 2 or 3 years of publicly funded CEGEP where they earn a DEC, to apply to University or a Diploma that leads to the working world.  Until the end of 2023 any student could apply to an English language or a French language CEGEP. As of 2024 new laws restrict access to English CEGEPs.  In response students and families are considering options other than CEGEP as a bridge to University and Grade 12 is their first choice.  Since Grade 12 in no longer part of the public school system in Quebec, it is only available in the private school network.  Grade 12 in Quebec’s private schools is much like every other grade. Students attend school from August to June, fees range from $18,000 to $28,000 for the year and enrolment is limited.  SchoolAdvice Personalized Online Grade 12 is very different. Read more..
