High School Program

High schools (public and private) across Canada are very welcoming to international students. Getting your child studying in a high school in Canada will give him/her an outstanding opportunity and environment to grow up as an international and progressive individual with a sense of multiculturalism. Once your child completes his/her graduation requirements in a Canadian high school, he/she will be eligible to admit in a Canadian college or university for post-secondary education.

In Canada High schools (Secondary Schools) begin with grades 8, 9, or 10 to 12. However, in Quebec, the high school includes grades 7 to 11. Many high schools offer the International Baccalaureate Program or Advanced Placement (AP) courses for international students. Public schools are also offering elite athletic and arts academy programs. Admission policies and requirements vary in individual institutions.

The school year runs from September to June. Some schools also offer a program year-round. The typical school day includes five to six hours of class time.

Study Cost

The annual tuition fee for an international student at a secondary school is between CAN$9,000 and $14,000. Private or independent schools may have a higher tuition fee, particularly if they offer a low student-teacher ratio and or enhanced/specialized learning opportunities. Tuition and boarding fees for secondary private or independent schools in Canada range from $45,500 to $65,000.
