Our goal in all our academic programs is to help young people strive for their personal best- whether that means achieving a higher “R Score” for university entrance or simply becoming the kind of person who lives to learn.
We believe in building a three way partnership of students, parents and staff focused on academic success. Unlike every other college in Quebec, we insist on parents’ sustained, consistent involvement in their child’s college-level education and expect them to follow our lead as coaches to sustain a young person’s focus on the path to completion of a DEC.
In 2013-2014 we offer 4 programs to our students: the Bridge to Science, the Bridge to Commerce, the Social Science Program and the Social Science with Commerce Profile.
Bridge to Science (2 semesters)
The Bridge to Science program is designed for students who wish to pursue a diploma in the Sciences, but who lack one or more of the Science prerequisites (Sec IV Math and Physical Science and Sec V Math, Chemistry and Physics). It is a one year program, which upon successful completion the student may be able to apply to a regular Pre-University Science program. Only General Education course credits will contribute towards graduation in a pre-university program. Centennial College’s innovative Bridge to Science program uses multimedia for lecture to preview, reserving most class-time for the challenges of problem solving and lab-based learning where the guidance of the teacher is most needed and effective in supporting student learning.
Bridge to Commerce (2 semesters)
The Commerce Bridge program is designed for students who wish to pursue a diploma in Commerce, but who lack one or more of the Commerce prerequisites (Sec IV and Sec V advanced Math). It is a transition program that would allow students to integrate in the Commerce Profile Social Science Program and graduate in 2 years.
Social Science Program (5 semesters)
The social science program is a 2 year pre university program designed to prepare students for further studies at university. The program offers courses in disciplines such as history, psychology, economics, sociology and political science and business studies.
Social Science – Commerce Profile (5 semesters)
The social science program is a 2 year pre university program designed to prepare students for further studies at university. The requirements are the same as the regular social sciences expect that students substitute 2 math courses (calculus 1 and linear algebra) for 2 social science courses. In addition students should complete microeconomics 383-201 as part of their advanced course requirements.
