College Degree

In September 2010, Beth Jacob Teachers College was fortunate to sign an agreement with Ellis College, making our facility the Montreal campus of Ellis College. A student wishing to enroll for College courses (AEC or DEC programs listed below) will now register through Beth Jacob to Ellis College. The students are full Ellis College students and the teachers are employees of Ellis College with all the ensuing benefits. Upon completion of the required curriculum the student will receive an Ellis degree from the Ministry of Education of Québec.

Over the years, our graduates have served on the administration of schools all over the world. Many are teachers, others have gone on to other positions of leadership within their communities.
