Moncton has both an Anglophone and Francophone school system. There are also several post-secondary
schooling options for students.
As Canada’s only officially bilingual province, education is offered in both English and French. The Anglophone East School District offers English and French immersion curriculums. The Francophone South School District teaches students in French only. Students attend schools associated with their residential district.
Schooling begins in kindergarten at the elementary level with middle school starting in Grade 6 and high school in Grade 9. Students graduate in Grade 12. The school year begins in September and ends in June with academic breaks in December and March.
Parents must register their children with the school before they can attend.
Université de Moncton, a French-language university, is the city’s largest post-secondary institution. Crandall University offers a Liberal Arts education based in the Christian faith. Moncton also has a number of community colleges that offer training in trades, technology, healthcare and the arts.
