New Westminster School District'

New Westminster School District: A Canadian Leader in International EducationThe New Westminster School District began hosting international students in 1987. Since that time thousands of students have gone on to successful post-secondary universities and colleges in Canada and around the world. Today, we welcome students from over twenty countries to our schools. We are very proud to announce the opening of the new, New Westminster Secondary School (NWSS) in January 2021.  New Westminster Secondary School is British Columbia's largest school project ever. NWSS features the most modern facilities in all subject areas, bright classrooms and large open common areas which lead on to a full-size competitive track and artificial turf field. Programs of Study: Quality Canadian EducationThe New Westminster School District offers international students a variety of academic program options. International Students may enrol for one semester, one year, or two or more years to complete a British Columbia Grade 12 Graduation Diploma. Whatever duration international students choose, we can design a program that meets their language ability, interests and future study goals. To ensure that each student has a positive and memorable study-abroad experience, we offer a comprehensive support system for our students including our district managed homestay program, personal and academic counselling and full immersion in all classes, sports teams and clubs alongside Canadian students. Long-term Programs: Elementary, Middle and SecondaryThe International Education Program provides long-term academic studies for students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 (ages 5–18). The regular school year begins every September and ends in June. International students may enter the school in either September or January. Students will have a deep immersion experience. Their spoken and written English improves rapidly as they become comfortable with the Canadian lifestyle, culture and education system. Short-term ProgramShort-term programs include English Study Tours and Customized Group Programs. Each program combines practical language training with appropriate educational activities that meet student interests. These very popular programs are held during summer and the school year when capacity allows.
