Why choose École du Sommet?
Because École du Sommet is more than a school, it is a dynamic living environment for Grade 7 to 12 students!
École du Sommet at the secondary level, what does it mean?
It means that your child will get the opportunity to explore new passions, to gain a better knowledge of his or her culture, to get involved in his or her community, to develop lifetime friendships and memories.
Dedicated and engaged
Teachers actively participate in each student’s success. Our main advantage is that our teachers are always close by and available to make sure students succeed. It is always a win-win situation.
A winning choice
A francophone school will put you ahead of the others! Your child will have the opportunity to be bilingual at the highest possible level. No matter the program, students all learn English at the same level and no matter if a student graduates from a francophone school, an immersion school or an English speaking school, in the end, they will have the same abilities in English.
Each student has access to a Macbook Pro laptop from Grade 1 to 12. Most classrooms are equipped with smart boards. This technological support allows our students to learn more independently and to be more engaged. We also have an open WiFi network so that each student always gets the necessary tools to succeed at school.

Learning junction – “CHALET” at École du Sommet
At École du Sommet, we adopted the concept of a learning “crossroads” to replace the idea of a “traditional” library as a physical space containing books. We now have a space that is inclusive, flexible, student-centered and that is designed to promote collaboration, inquiries, imagination and play so as to reinforce learning. This space, that we have named “CHALET”, is a welcoming environment to accommodate the different abilities and learning styles of our students, no matter if they work individually, as a team or as a group. This 21st century vision is based on innovation, flexibility and acceptance.
