High School Program


Coquitlam College understands that our students come from a wide variety of educational backgrounds. For exactly that reason, we offer three distinct high school programs to help you complete the courses you need to start your university studies in Canada without delay. 

Admission Requirements

Students are accepted into grade 10, 11 or 12 of the Senior High School Program based on an evaluation of the official transcripts from their previous school, as well as their English language fluency.
