A close and complete community
Kells Academy's two campuses are just four small blocks apart, situated in the borough of Notre-Dame-de-Grace, a safe, residential neighborhood in Montreal's west end. Its wide, tree-lined avenues and numerous parks, libraries, and sports centre make it an ideal location for our school, and one easily reached from so many parts of Montreal.
Campuses are easily accessed by car and all means of public transportation, with convenient bus, metro and suburban train connections. A private bus service is also available for students residing in Montreal West, Notre-Dame-de-Grace, Cote-St-Luc, Montreal's downtown area, Town of Mount Royal, Westmount, and the West Island.
High School Facilities
Kells' excellent high school facility offers classrooms equipped with advanced teaching technologies (including both PC and Mac laptops, SmartBoards, and iPads) for Secondary I-IV classes. The building houses both Music and Art rooms, our own IT/Resource Centre, a Learning Centre and Science Lab. The building's cafeteria is a warm and inviting place where our students can enjoy lunch in a relaxed atmosphere, possibly followed by a game of table tennis. At lunchtime, hot meals are served each day, in addition to our cafeteria's several cold options. Equally, students are most welcome to bring their own lunches.
Adjacent to Kells Academy High School building is a fully equipped gymnasium, an outdoor soccer field, baseball diamond, and winter skating rink, all accessible to Kells sports enthusiasts both during and after the school day. Students also have access to the recently opened NDG Sports Centre located at Benny and Monkland, a superb new facility housing a beautiful double gymnasium and a 25-metre swimming pool.
Kells International Residence
Kells' residence will offer the great convenience of being on-campus for elementary students and minutes away for our high school. Living at the International Residence will connect students with a community, where they can make lasting friendships, experience the city, and develop a range of academic and life skills. Our residence will not be just a convenient place to live, but an important part of the overall Kells experience. This will be your home away from home. We plan to offer tutorial support and ESL classes. Social events on weekends will include sports, arts, outings, and trips to local events.
Our accommodation will provide a modern yet homey atmosphere to students from 10 to 18 years of age. It will feature fully furnished suites with common laundry and kitchen facilities, as well as a clean, secure, and smoke-free environment. Approximately 40 students will live in residence. This is a unique opportunity for students from a variety of communities and countries to share in the boarding school adventure.Read More
