Founded Samuel-Genest

Collège catholique Samuel-Genest (CCSG) is a French Catholic junior high and high school (Grade 7 to Grade 12) in Ottawa, Ontario, under the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE). Both junior high and high school sides were combined in 2004 with the fusion of the CCSG (high school) with the junior high schools of Pauline-Vanier and Vision Jeunesse (both in Ottawa, ON). A school uniform is mandatory for the students.



In September 1979, CCSG opened with 71 students, in two classes of Grade 9 and one class of Grade 10. The administration, knowing that students want to follow their high school education at Samuel-Genest, created Grade 11 classes the next year, and a Grade 12 class in 1982. It was only in 1984 however that a Grade 13 was offered.

Throughout those years, Samuel Genest has moved from three different locations in Ottawa. First starting on Smyth rd. Then to Church st and finally on Carson's rd.


Concentration Scientifique

CCSG is known for its academic strength in the field of Science. It is the only high-school in the Ottawa region to offer a Concentration Scientifique (French for Scientific Concentration).

New concentrations

In the 2006-2007 school year, the school also launched 2 new programs, exclusively to Grades 7-8, which are Sam'Artiste (Artists Program) and Sam'Sportif (Sports program), in addition to the Sam'Enrichit program, affiliated to the 9-12 Scientific Concentration. It is expected that the Sam'Artiste and Sportif programs will be gradually expanded to Grades 9-12.
