Kintore College sees itself as a springboard for personal growth and professional success. This is reflected in Kintore’s coat of arms: Look to the Stars, or Respice Stellam in Latin, a reminder to aim high, to dare to dream. Kintore College’s aim is to encourage the personal growth of young women in university as a means to transform society.

​To achieve this personal and professional development of our residents, we offer educational programs directed at forming them to be well-rounded women and citizens. We also offer volunteer opportunities which facilitate students to share their gifts with others, leading to the experience of the joy of service for all those involved.

PHILOSOPHY & LITERATURE

Open to female post-secondary students ages 18-25.

In this program, students are challenged to think and dialogue about eternal topics such as suffering, joy, morality, etc; topics which may not be covered in their formal studies but which affect each individual and community. The students are often exposed to these topics from a literary perspective, with the end goal of gaining knowledge in literature, philosophy, and of themselves.
