Based on Quebec Ministry of Education guidelines, the Stanstead College curriculum is broadly divided into junior (Grade 7, 8) and senior levels (Grade 9, 10, 11), with the core subjects of Mathematics, English and French emphasized at each level. Grade 11 is highlighted by advanced level courses in Mathematics, French, Chemistry and Physics. Students may opt for French as a second language or Français as a first language (langue maternelle).
Students graduate from high school upon the successful completion of their Grade 11 (Secondary V) year. Students may choose to attend Quebec CEGEP (two-year college subsidized by the Quebec government) or enroll in Grade 12
, which provides students with an intensive university preparatory program.
Because of the sequential nature of the Quebec curriculum, senior students are encouraged to enrol at Stanstead College in Grade 9 or 10 at the latest. Ideally, junior students should enrol in Grade 7.
Stanstead also offers an English Second Language program.
