History[edit]

In 1892, the mayor of Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, John H. Sullivan, began to work with his councillors to found a classical college. In 1895, a building was erected to accommodate 27 students while awaiting construction on Champlain Street of the current Valleyfield College. On September 5, 1896, Valleyfield College opened its doors. In 1925, due to a law, Valleyfield College became the Valleyfield Seminary or the "St-Thomas d'Aquin Seminary", it was renamed Valleyfield College when it became public in August 1967. It is one of the twelve founding CEGEPs of the public college education system in Quebec.
