Exploring the foundations of knowledge to push the frontiers of innovation

The Science program at Marianopolis is a two-year, pre-university program where you have the opportunity to discover the many facets of the natural world. Science at the college-level is different from science in high school: you get more in-depth information with your courses and more hands-on experience, more lab time and more opportunities to explore your interests. Choose one of four profiles:


If you are curious about how the natural world works and are excited at the idea of taking on new challenges and pushing your limits, if you like asking questions, finding the answers and then asking even more questions, then Science at Marianopolis is for you.

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. Marianopolis Science graduates occupy more spots each year in highly competitive university programs than all other Montreal colleges combined. And year after year, our graduates tell us that they felt better prepared than their peers when they arrived at university. 

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.

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.

The quality, care and expertise of our teachers is also what sets Science at Marianopolis apart. They are mentors whose doors are always open to offer students help and whose classes are smaller than at other schools, on average 30 students. Our Science and Math professors work together, collaborate across disciplines and offer a deeply integrative learning experience, which balances various perspectives from multiple disciplines and helps our graduates become strong university students.

It’s no wonder that Marianopolis is known as the place for pre-university Science studies in Quebec.

“Coming from a small high school, Marianopolis really opened my eyes. I met passionate, like-minded friends and I learned from amazing teachers. Marianopolis showed me what education should be and it lived up to all my expectations!”
