Opportunities for high school students can be any length in time but the most popular is one year, Many students also choose to study for 6 weeks or 3 months,
Schools in the Saanich district are located in safe, beautiful neighbourhoods. Families from these neighbourhoods are carefully screened to host international students before they qualify. We understand the importance of a quality placement for every student. A well-established company is hired by the District to ensure that students are placed in clean, caring, and safe homes. The School District’s responsibilities also include on-going monitoring of the family and of the student.
In many cases, one of the family’s children already attends the school you are attending. In addition, we try to house the student in a neighbourhood near the school. Please note that the schools are located only a few kilometres from downtown Victoria, and the city transportation service is safe and efficient.
There are three schools in the Saanich School District that support the International Student Program: Parkland, Stelly’s and Claremont. Located in beautiful British Columbia near the capital city of Victoria and Sidney by the Sea.
