Lester B. Pearson High School's Sport-études program is designed for the high performance athlete who is able to maintain high academic standards.
This high-level program is recognized by the Ministère de l'Éducation de Québec (MEQ) and is administered in conjunction with provincial sports federations. It allows students to combine learning an athletic sport and academic studies, in order to achieve excellence in both spheres.
We provide our student athletes with a supportive environment which will enable them to succeed academically while pursuing their athletic careers.
We have two streams, Honours Math Sport Études where students will be on the accelerated math and science path and the regular stream where students complete the same QEP program as the rest of the school but in 75% of instructional time.
The Sport-Études program provides for a personalized daily schedule, daily study hall and tutorials, sufficient time to practice and compete in your sport, flexible deadlines and the opportunity to work on assignments and projects remotely.
In addition to having provincial agreements with the sports federations above, Lester B. Pearson High School also offers a Sport Concentration Program. Students enrolled in this option enjoy the same schedule and academic benefits as those students recognized as Sport-Études. Students in the Sport Concentration Program must meet a certain level of ability and level of training within their sport.
The purpose of the athletic/sports component of the Sport-études program is to develop existing competence in a specific sport. Student athletes must meet the sport requirements and must currently participate in the sport of choice for at least one year prior to being accepted into the Sport-études program. Admission decisions are made in partnership with the sports clubs and federations.
