Live with a welcoming Canadian host family and go to a local Canadian High School thanks to our homestay and High School integration program in Canada! 

This is a non-credited program that allows pupils to live a firsthand living experience in Canada, for a duration of 8 to 12 weeks. Even though this is a cultural program, students attend a local school and participate in class assessments, in order to enrich their English knowledge. This is a great introductory program for those interested in completing a full academic year at a later stage.  

Highlights of the program:  

  • The aim of this program is to discover the Canadian school system, and to experience social integration with Canadian teenagers.
  • The student is exempt from doing homework and taking examinations, and it is generally not possible to transfer credits to the home school.
  • Students are placed with warm and welcoming volunteer Canadian families, who are looking for an intercultural experience.
  • Students have a 24/7 emergency phone number.

Accommodation

Canadian host family on a full board basis.

They usually live in a suburban area or a small village. If there is a lack of public transportation, the student will have to rely to his/her host family. 
The new family member is expected to take part in the daily activities of his or her host family. Integration into the family is the ultimate goal of the homestay experience. However, host families are not required to organize activities, visits or excursion. The participant comes with his/her own spending money to cover the cost of activities.
