Your School contact
Ottawa, Canada’s Capital, is an urban and vibrant destination where you’ll find many cultural attractions, delectable restaurants and lots of cosmopolitan shopping options.
Canada may be a bilingual country, but Ottawa is even more so. Ottawa is a city that offers you to master two more international languages (French and English) while obtaining a high-quality diploma.
Our school board has developed a reception, admission and assistance program to greatly facilitate your integration. The bottom line is that choosing the CEPEO means opting for excellence.
Although all of our schools provide students with the opportunity to try a variety of sports, Louis-Riel High School offers a Sports-Study program for which students must apply to by providing our office with a sports portfolio (video, letter of recommendation from a coach/trainer, certificates of achievement, etc...). Additional fees are incurred for students who are accepted into the program.
Advanced Placement, Academies, Camps, French Immersion, International Baccalaureate, Trips
In addition to the Sports-Study program offered at Louis-Riel High School and the Arts program offered by De La Salle High School, our board also has a Leadership Camp which is offered over the summer in French to students aged 13 to 17 years old. This camp takes place in a relaxed setting where students alternate their days between classroom instruction by a qualified teacher, followed by educational and cultural activities in French. Many opportunities are given to students so they can practice speaking French to new-found friends, locals, and their host families.

Kanada ist für sein modernes, schülerzentriertes und reichhaltiges Bildungsangebot bekannt. Das Lehrprogramm des Schulbezirkes CEPEO, Conseil des écoles publiques, in Ottawa bietet außergewöhnliche Möglichkeiten für alle Begabungen und Interessen. Ein Jahr in Ottawa wird somit zu einem ganz besonderen Schuljahr in einer Schule nach Maß. Anders als in vielen europäischen Schulen können vielfältige Schwerpunkte gewählt werden.
