Lower Canada College (LCC) of
Montrealis an elementary and secondary level private school. The college was founded in 1861 as St. John's School and changed its name to Lower Canada College in 1909, replacing an older school by that name that was founded in 1847.
LCC offers education from Kindergarten through Grade 12. Students graduate from Grade 11, and then have the option of leaving the school and going on to
CEGEP, which is the university preparatory system in Quebec, or returning to LCC for the Pre-University year.
Until recently, LCC was one of the few remaining schools with a covered outdoor
ice hockeyrink. This has been replaced by a new athletics centre as well as a new arena. In addition to hockey, LCC has been known for fielding strong Lions teams in Canadian football, soccer, basketballand rugby union. LCC's traditional rival in sports and other matters is Selwyn House School.
Once boys-only, LCC is now co-educational, with roughly 40 percent of the population being girls. Girls were first admitted to Grade 12 in 1992 and were phased in to the other grades beginning in the 1995-96 school year.
LCC has also increasingly become a
bilingualinstitution, with courses taught in both French and English.
