Cultural Experience

International students are invited to attend our high schools for shorter-term placements ranging from two months to one year. These placements focus on the Canadian experience and are ideal for students seeking to improve their English-language skills. Students receive credit for academic coursework but do not remain in Canada long enough to graduate. Living and learning in the world-famous Rocky Mountains is a huge attraction for students in our program.
