John Abbott College

John Abbott College is a CEGEP located in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, at the western tip of the Island of Montreal.

Named after Sir John Abbott, Canada's third prime minister who lived in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue after his retirement, the College primarily serves Montreal's West Island Community, although you can also meet students here from other parts of Quebec and the rest of Canada.

Over 5,000 students are enrolled in the Day Division and about 2,000 in the Continuing Education Division.

As one of 47 CEGEPs (collège d'enseignement général et professionnel) in Quebec, John Abbott offers two types of programs: Two-year preuniversity programs that lead to university, and three-year career or professional programs designed to lead directly to the labour market.

The mission of John Abbott College is to provide an excellent education for students within a stimulating learning environment that will enhance their development and potential for success in society.
