Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE)


The Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) is the largest Canadian network of French-language schools outside the province of Quebec. Most of the schools are located in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, and others are in neighbouring cities: Kingston, Brockville and Pembroke. The CECCE has more than 21,000 French-speaking students in 50 elementary and secondary schools. Our priority is to insure the success of each student.

  • The CECCE is recognized for the excellence of its schools; its students consistently obtain the best results in Ontario on standardized tests.
  • Its secondary schools offer many specialized programs (International Baccalaureate, Sport Academies, Sciences, Fine Arts, etc.).
  • All students master both French and English, Canada’s two official languages.
  • The secondary school graduation rate is greater than 90%.
