Sherbrooke’s Collège du Sacré-Cœur closes its doors for good

By Emilie Hackett, Special to the Record – The Collège du Sacré-Cœur (CSC) will be closing down at the end of the current school year. Members of CSC solidarity cooperative held an assembly on Feb. 6, where they all voted in favour of the shut-down. The private school was first opened in 1945 by les Filles de la Charité du Sacré-Coeur de Jésus. The first all-girls college of its kind in Sherbrooke, the CSC started accepting male students just last year. “Our main concern is accompanying our students and staff in this difficult transition. Various measures will immediately be established to facilitate the students’ application at other schools and to support our staff as they search for a new job. Our main goal is to diminish the uncertainties caused by this situation so that our students can concentrate on their studies and can finish off the year in peace,” expressed Pierre Rodier, chairman of the CSC board of directors.
