Partnerships

Marianopolis proudly partners with Alliance Sport-Études to help elite student-athletes balance the demands of academics with the rigors of athletic training and competition. Marianopolis students with student-athlete status from the Alliance are eligible for:

  • Adapted educational services, including priority registration to create class schedules according to training and competition needs, extended studies into additional semesters, if desired, and courses via Cégep à distance
  • Support from an academic success counselor at the Alliance, who provides structure and personalized monitoring to facilitate the successful completion of studies
  • Access to a designated academic advisor at Marianopolis, who works closely with the student and the Alliance academic success counselor to ensure the student is adequately supported
  • Scholarships through the Alliance’s foundation

Recognized by the Ministry of Education, Alliance Sport-Études comprises 42 colleges, le Cégep à distance and eight universities. In fall 2018, 1,500 student-athletes from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and over 50 sports federations were enrolled in member schools.


Marianopolis is proud to be a member of the Association des collèges privés du Québec, which represents 21 accredited private colleges in the province. These colleges offer pre-university and technical programs and services to a diverse student clientele, leading to a Diploma of College Studies or an Attestation of Collegial Studies. In the 2017-2018 academic year, they welcomed some 17,000 students. At the heart of the Association’s actions is the success of every student in the private colleges’ network.

Marianopolis College Director General Christian Corno is president of the Association.


Thanks to a unique partnership between Montreal’s two most prestigious colleges, students at Marianopolis and Collège Jean-de-Brébeuf can perfect their knowledge of French or English, as the case may be, by completing their last semester of studies at the other college.

This excellent choice meets the curriculum requirements of the provincial education ministry. Students go beyond language and beyond the classroom to total immersion in clubs, sports and life in general at the host college.


As the first English college to be accredited a Cégep Vert in 2007, Marianopolis holds a Niveau Excellence certification for its commitment to continually improving its ecological efforts and promoting awareness of environmental issues and sustainable solutions.


Marianopolis is proud to be part of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame’s educational network in Quebec. Its fellow schools in the province are Collège Mont Notre-Dame in Sherbrooke, Collège Regina Assumpta in Montreal North, École Les Mélèzes in Joliette and Villa Maria High School in Montreal. The congregation’s virtual archive is a fount of information on how the order has shaped the education of Montrealers for the balance of four centuries.

Founded by the congregation in 1908, Marianopolis has its roots in the first educational endeavours of 17th Century Ville Marie. This heritage informs and shapes the College as it continues to conceive of education as a transformative force in the life of the individual and society.


Small class sizes, jazz and classical, a unique relationship with one of the world’s top conservatories: that’s Music at Marianopolis. Thanks to the unique partnership that Marianopolis and McGill University have enjoyed since 1969, Marianopolis Music students take their instrumental and ensemble courses at the Schulich School of Music. They can also sing in the university’s choir and audition for McGill jazz, orchestra and wind ensembles. Marianopolis is the only school of its kind offering this exceptional training to its students.


Marianopolis enjoys a partnership with Sakura no Seibo Junior College in Fukushima, Japan. The accord of friendship and mutual understanding between the two members of the Congrégation de Notre-Dame Schools Network enriches the students, faculty, staff and administrators at both institutions and provides varied educational opportunities. The two colleges have agreed to accept qualified students to enable them to continue their studies or earn credits at the sister college; provide programs and facilities for academic and enriching activities, such as language courses and cultural exchanges; and facilitate exchanges between staff and faculty at each school.
