Only in America.
When I went to University (years ago) we never referred
to females by the term co-ed.
Here in Canada Co-ed means an "educational" programme
that has both female and male participants.
BTW your terms for secondary education (high school)
are not always clear, for example Sophmore (sp?). I have
no idea whether your school system has a three year, four

Quebec has a three year programme, Ontario has a five

year programme if your are going to a college. Most
other provinces have a four your programme of secondary
education. If someone wish to fill in the Quebec info
on CEGEEP please feel free to do so. (Patrick Lam are
