Last January, Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É. invited potential students to participate in a contest to win a $2,000 credit towards tuition for a full-time program beginning in September. Catherine Barriault, who is enrolled in the youth worker program to begin in September, was recently announced as the lucky winner.

"I'm very grateful to Collège Acadie Î.-P.-É for this contest. This $2,000 credit means that I won't have to go very deeply in debt for my post-secondary education," Barriault explained.
All of college's programs are in fields where Island employers are looking for qualified employees.
Students interested in enrolling in a program at the collège for September can do so directly on Collège Acadie's new website at www.collegeacadieipe.ca.
