Our students live in local private home-stays throughout the community.
The Student Life/Academic Advisor reports to the school principal and will support students in their transition to Canada and to the school; will supervise the students in daily self-study periods; engage students in activities; provide academic advising on university choices and application processes; and assist with the student recruitment process.
