International students can choose between multiple schools and are assisted in finding the best match for their educational needs and other interests. Students may attend for a short term of 3, 5, or 10 months, with an emphasis on English language acquisition and cultural experience, or they may participate in the program for more than one year, and work toward attaining an Ontario Secondary School Diploma.

International Students are well supported during their stay with dedicated teachers, English as a Second Language support as required, and counselling support. Students will stay with caring homestay families that are well educated, English speaking, and be part of communities which are some of the safest in Canada. Eastern Ontario has very low ESL populations, so international students will learn English quickly in immersion environments.
