The former Couvent Jésus Marie was designed by a prominent French Canadian architect, J.E. Fortin. The school’s exterior and interior illustrate Classical Revival influences exemplified in its symmetry and immense proportions. However, the front entrance’s architectural details are influenced by the dramatic style of the Baroque period. The grand staircase and reception area portray an air of opulence.
