The Collège de Montréal is a subsidized private high school for students attending grades 7–11 located in downtown Montreal, Quebec, Canada. A former Roman Catholic minor seminary, it was founded on June 1, 1767 as the Petit Séminaire of Montreal by the Sulpician Fathers. From 1773 to 1803, it was known as Collège Saint-Raphaël.
It was the first high school in Montreal and is still considered one of the best in the province. It was particularly well regarded for its "accelerated immersion" program, in which students from English schools who were in French immersion programs could, within two years, be brought up to the same level as students who came from francophone schools. Although enrollment was previously limited to boys, the school has been co-educational since 1997. The school's performance hall, the Ermitage, was an important venue for public concerts in Montreal from its establishment in 1914 up into the 1960s.
In a widely reported article in 2008, Le Journal de Montréal found that school administrators and in particular its Director-General, Jacques Giguère, had expensed many non-school related items, including high-priced furniture, a luxury hotel suite for a Christmas party, and the services of a personal trainer. Both the school's teachers union and staff union called for Giguère's resignation.
