It is with great pleasure that my administrative team and I will be welcoming you to
Laval Senior Academy
We hope you are all getting prepared for a relaxing summer break with family and friends. Over the summer and during the course of the next school year, our faculty will be working hard for a smooth transition into the new school year, while keeping in mind and reinforcing our new school values of Perseverance, Integrity, Citizenship, and Achievement. With the primary focus on instruction and student learning, we want our school community to be reassured that we will be providing many opportunities and learning experiences for all students to be successful and well-prepared to meet any challenge.
We welcome your active participation in your child’s education, and we urge you to be proactive in communicating with administration, counselors, professionals and teachers, and as time allows, to volunteer in our various committees, programs, events and celebrations. We strongly believe that by working together, we will ensure success for your child.
As we approach the end of this school year and prepare for the opening of our new school together, you can access our new website at https://lsa.schoolqc.ca.
