You have probably heard a lot of great things about Science at Marianopolis. Well, they are all true. Science at Marianopolis is the leading program in the province. The students studying Science at Marianopolis are among the best in Quebec. They graduate on time at a rate that students in other colleges can’t match. They are admitted at competitive university programs at a rate that has no comparison.

Science at Marianopolis is designed to give you the training you need to get into Medicine, Engineering, Computer Science or Dentistry, among other highly competitive university programs. Our focus on academics also prepares you best for university studies. Year after year, our graduates tell us that when they got to university, they felt better equipped than their classmates. It’s not surprising that Marianopolis Science students are accepted into their first-choice program at their first-choice university at a rate that is higher than that of students at other colleges.

Of course, you are probably wondering about the R-Score. The academic strength of our students actually helps to produce the best R-scores in the province. Coming to Marianopolis will help your R-Score precisely because you are surrounded by high-performing students. Indeed, our students tend to have the highest average R-Scores in the province and the most R-Scores above 34. 

In addition to the quality of teaching at Marianopolis, our Science students tell us that part of their success comes from the fact that their program is all about collaboration, not competition. Students support each other, whether it’s studying together, sharing notes or congratulating one another after the many Science- and Math competitions in which our students excel each year at the national and international levels. That’s what happens when you have so much in common with your classmates and you are part of a small community like Marianopolis.

As well, our long-standing stellar reputation is based on such impressive results and on the quality, care and expertise of our teachers. They are mentors who have an open-door policy and smaller classes than at other schools, on average 30 students. Our Science and Math faculty work together, collaborating across disciplines and offering you a deeply integrative learning experience, which balances various perspectives from multiple disciplines and helps to make you a strong university student.

Add to this the College’s century-old tradition of excellence and its commitment to supporting each and every student, and it’s no wonder that we are known as the place for pre-university Science studies, whether it’s our Health Science, Pure and Applied Science, Honours Health Science, Honours Pure and Applied Science or Science and Music Double DEC  program.
