encourage students to give us their top 3 choices and we will do our best to
accommodate. Oftentimes homestay availability can be a limiting factor. We ask
students to apply early if they wish to request a particular school. All
students should fill out General Information and Course Request forms to let the

International students are provided with a safe and welcoming environment
where they can obtain a quality educational experience while developing a deeper
appreciation for the diverse social and cultural society that is Canada.
International students can expect to gain new perspectives, new friends and a
new understanding of the global nature of society. We are proud of our schools,
our highly educated and qualified teachers, our students and our safe and caring
school communities. We would like to share them with students from other
countries and cultures. With over 99% of our students native English speakers,
visiting students will be immersed in English in the classroom, in their
homestay and in the community.
