Elementary, Secondary and Summer Camps






Elementary and Secondary – An English Education is a Bilingual Future!

We are an English public school board offering the curriculum prescribed by the Ministry of Education of Québec. Students can enjoy the experience of living in either a cosmopolitan, bilingual city, or festive, artistic picturesque villages with plenty of outdoor activities for all ages, all year round. We offer students from abroad the opportunity to study English and at the same time experience the uniqueness of the French speaking community.

The Sir Wilfrid Laurier School board has 26 elementary schools and 9 high schools offering international students programs mainly for high school for Grades 7 to 11. Students may indicate their school preference, however, placement in school is based on the address of the parent or legal guardian and is subject to availability of space and school.

The student will be placed in a grade according to their age on September 30 of the school year, however, we reserve the right to determine the school and grade placement.  If a student would like to apply for an elementary school program (from Grades 1 to 6), homestay is not available.

We offer:

  • full-year (10-months)
  • short-term, (2, 3 or 5 months)
  • summer and winter camps programs

We have different lodging options which include Canada Homestay International and the Cosmodome Aerospace Museum.

All our schools and centres are automatically designated learning institutions (DLI’s) by Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
