In addition to identifying an appropriate high school and securing a placement for the student, this service also includes:
- Arranging a suitable homestay

- Assistance with starting school (uniform purchase if relevant, administrative details with Student Services)
- Attendance at parent-teacher meetings, with a report sent back to the student’s parents
- Other assistance as required
Fees for this service are annual, and continue as long as the student is in school and up to his/her 18th birthday. To inquire about high school placement and guardianship, contact us for more information.
“I really enjoy the experiences gained in working within the CIS program. The students we teach expand our understandings of our own pedagogy, in working with a cultural background so distinct from our own."
“The program offers students an unforgettable opportunity to see a different part of the world, while developing their English language skills, as they experience Canadian culture through classroom activities, excursions, and interactions with their homestay families.”
"It is very rewarding for me, as an educator, to witness the growth in the students’ language skills over a short intensive period of time. The base of vocabulary they arrive to Canada with serves as a good testament to their English training in their own school system."
"I think the activities that are embedded within the program provide the students a solid means of showing much of the Canadian lifestyle, in terms of day-to-day recreation, but also other features that require the use of larger spaces, that are not as prevalent in their home country. These, in combination with the homestay experiences and dietary differences from home, provide the students with a truly well rounded experience."
