Introduction to School Year Programs

Top-rated schools and results

When it comes to international education, we’ve thought of everything. Academic excellence. World-class recreation. Supportive homestay families.

In the West Vancouver School District, you’ll enjoy the best facilities, technology, and international education in Canada. Since we started welcoming students from around the world in 1982, we’ve gained a global reputation for top-rated schools and results.

As one of our international students, you’ll enroll for a full academic year (September to June) in an English-speaking classroom in a school in Canada.

Enjoy stimulating, state-of-the art learning environments, from science labs and libraries to classrooms with the latest computer and web technology.
