The Central Québec School Board (CQSB) is situated in historical Québec City but our territory covers nearly one-third of the province of Québec. Our Board has served the English-speaking community under various names since 1867.

CQSB has jurisdiction over 18 schools and one Adult and Vocational Education centre. Eight of our nine Secondary (High) Schools have a student population of less than 500. We have four Secondary (High) schools; eight Elementary schools and six schools that offer instruction from Kindergarten to Secondary V (Grade 11). The largest Elementary school serves more than 450 students and the smallest serves approximately 50 students.

The excellence of our students’ results on Ministry Uniform Examinations confirm the Central Québec School Board as the English school Board with the highest success rate in the province year after year. No small feat for a school board with the largest territory and some of the most geographically isolated schools in the province!

With our smaller-than-average class sizes, CQSB offers international students the unique opportunity for more individualised attention in safe, caring schools where students and teachers have the chance to build meaningful interpersonal relationships. Our strength is in the personal touch we can offer each and every student due not only to the size of our schools but more importantly, to the professional and caring attitude of our teaching, professional and support staff as well as the pedagogical leadership we entrust to our administrators both at the school level and at the Board office.
