The Priory at a Glance
The Priory is an independent, co-educational, English elementary school offering classes from Kindergarten to the end of cycle three.
The Priory welcomes children who may not otherwise be eligible for English education in the province of Quebec. As the school does not receive government assistance, The Priory can provide instruction in English to any child regardless of the parents' origins or language.
The school was founded on Catholic traditions and welcomes students of all backgrounds while maintaining its spiritual and moral integrity. The universal values common to all faiths are promoted and integrated into the religious program.
The Priory has an enrollment of approximately 168 students each year. Class size ranges from 20-24 Students. Math, Science, French, English Language Arts, and Art are taught in half groups of twelve.
