Why NSAL

We are the change. We see the change.
We Welcome the change.

“Welcome to North Star Academy Laval (NSAL), where your children are our priority.”

Not just a catch phrase spoken by the Head of School of a small and unique private English school serving the Laval community. When high school options were limited, and the only English private school was an inconceivable 90-minute daily commute into Montreal, the vision of Ms. Josée Pepin, owner, was simple: build a private school that was accessible and that would meet the needs of all learners, where everyone would feel safe and welcome.

With class sizes well below public school standards, teacher mentor teams; Signature Programs; individualized curricula; over 20 extra curricular activities; from local to international travel; and a focus on community connections—what more could you want for your child as they enter into those delicate teenage years.

Our vision is our compass, it is the reason we do what we do with so much passion each and every day, it’s simple, at North Star Academy Laval a private education means that we are:

Prioritizing each student, each day.
