Every year upwards of 20,000 bright young minds move to Kingston to attend Queen’s University, the Royal Military College of Canada and St. Lawrence College. Their impact on our community is manifold and shapes the economic, educational and cultural fabric of Kingston.


Both St. Lawrence College and Queen’s University partner with local school boards to enrich the experiences of high school students. Collaborations through programs such as School within a College encourage local students to explore the world of post-secondary education in their backyard long before they graduate. For those who have finished their studies, these institutions offer access to some of the best library collections in North America and a constant stream of workshops, seminars and notable guest speakers.
