What Marianopolis student-athletes have to say

Marianopolis is providing me with excellent support as a student-athlete. The Academic Advisors have helped to ensure that I don’t lose NCAA eligibility. I’m able to adapt a full Science course load to my training schedule. This way, I can make it to every class as well as every training session.

I chose to come to Marianopolis not only for its amazing reputation but for its willingness to accommodate my sports schedule and manage my school schedule. I maximize my training while getting the education I need to progress in my academic career. The Academic Advisors are terrific, open-minded and willing to help you maximize your school and sports schedule as well as answering pretty much any question you may have about education. Thanks to the support I get, I am able to get success in the sports world as well as the academic world.

Education has always been extremely important for me and I was always part of the top students in secondary school. I wanted to go to the best CEGEP and was very fortunate to be accepted at Marianopolis. They give me an exceptional schedule that fits perfectly with my 7-days-a-week soccer schedule. The teachers are truly exceptional and they understand how hard it is to be a student-athlete. I’ve had an exceptional experience here at Marianopolis and strongly recommend the school to anyone who wants to be an accomplished student-athlete.
