Alliance Sport-Études is recognized by the Ministry of Education and Higher Education. Its mission is to offer services and educational support to elite athletes who pursue higher studies.

Cegep Heritage College has been a member of Alliance Sport-Études for a number of years. Student-athletes train on average about twenty hours a week. In addition, they regularly participate in training camps and competitions in Quebec and internationally, while completing their DEC. In collaboration with their teachers and other staff members our student-athletes find ways to reconcile their sport with their studies.

Teacher Recognition Program - Tag ton prof! 

Each year, student-athletes have the opportunity to highlight the positive impact that one of their teachers has had on their sport-study conciliation. This recognition program is called Tag ton prof!  

In 2022 under 25 teachers were recognized in the province of Quebec, one of which was Mr. Sami Nicola from our EIT program. The Alliance Sport-Études selection committee named him a precious collaborator in the academic and athletic success of student-athletes.
