How to school in Canada?

Public School

Students enter high school in Canada from 9th to 12th grade in most provinces and territories as public schooling is overseen by the local and provincial governments. In Quebec, students enter high school from grades 7-11. These schools are remarkable in terms of resources and infrastructure. Almost all the schools hold  extracurricular clubs or sports activities which the student can participate in.


​Studying in vibrant locations like Ontario and Alberta, students can choose which school they want to study depending on the area they are going to be living in among many other factors.

Private School

Private high schools are usually boarding schools that focus on specific criteria such as schools sponsored by a religious group, or single-gender education, or schools for gifted children. Students will be living on campus where they will be supported by well-experienced faculty and staff round the clock.

These private schools focus on preparing its students for entry into a college or university. They provide rigorous training to allow the student to exploit their full potential.

Summer Camps

Summer camps are an essential part of your Canadian experience. They last usually up to 2 weeks at a time during which the child will be taken on trips to Canada’s cultural landmarks and will be getting a sneak peak to student life in Canada. The students will attend language classes in the mornings and will have fun activities planned for them in the evenings. With adult supervision and 24/7 emergency contact, the student will either stay with a host family or in a student residence with all necessary amenities. 

Where do students reside?

Students studying in Canadian high schools can either live with a family approved by the government, called a host family or a student dormitory.

Living with a Host Family

A new life away from home in a new country can seem challenging. But a host family can help support you through it all. They are friendly, warm and welcoming to all foreign students and will to help you adjust to your new lifestyle. Your family will help you get acclimatized to your new surroundings, the people and culture. Since all the host families will be speaking English as their primary language, you will be immersed in their language and culture and as a result improving your English rapidly.

In their new home, each student will have their own room. This will contain a bed, closet space, study area, etc. giving them their own personal space. There might be one other international student living with the same host family as you. Since no two students of the same nationality are placed in the same house together, the scope for spending time with your host family increases along with the chance to familiarise themselves with other cultures and backgrounds.

We at Vineyard Schools help you choose the right school and a host family suited to you.

Living in a dormitory

Some Canadian private schools are boarding schools where you will be living with numerous other Canadian and international students. This gives you a chance to immediately meet and get acquainted with people from different cultures and backgrounds. It creates an opportunity to bond with new friends and a sense of belonging in a community. The common areas in the dorms allow students to engage themselves with relaxing activities in their free time.

The dormitories are always separate for boys and girls.

Getting from class to your dorm is much easier as everything is within walking distance. You could, of course, participate in the various after school club activities or your favorite sport. There is always something to do during the weekends with fellow students. The students and supervising adults will always be there for you when you're feeling homesick.
