Acadians and those sympathetic to their cause endeavoured to set up French-language secondary and post-secondary institutions in the Maritime provinces. Some, including Camille LEFEBVRE, founded establishments that endured. The following extract from his biography describes his accomplishment.

“Lefebvre was, above all, a dedicated and charismatic teacher…. [he] structured the first institution that made post-secondary education available to the Acadians. Through the doors of Saint Joseph’s [college], not only during his lifetime but for over three-quarters of a century after his death, came the greater number of those Acadians who were to be the doctors, lawyers, and teachers in their communities.”
