Three granite arches grace the entrance of Colby House, Stanstead College’s main building. The arches reflect the school’s motto – Sanitas Sapientia Religio or health, wisdom and integrity – as well as its highly structured programs of academics, athletics and student life.

At Stanstead College, boys and girls in Grades 7 through 12 live and study on a picturesque campus surrounded by the hills of Quebec's Eastern Townships and Northern Vermont. The school has a population of approximately 235 students from around the world and a highly involved faculty and staff. In addition to the Quebec Diploma at Secondary V (Grade 11), Stanstead College offers a Grade 12 option based on Advanced Placement and Ontario pre-university programs.

Students enjoy a strong sense of community as they prepare for university. Building on over 140 years of tradition, Stanstead College reinforces traditional values as it embraces innovation in a constantly changing world.
