Secondary education in Canada offers a variety of schools, programs and formats, each designed to meet different student needs. The Canadian secondary school system includes public international high schools, private international high schools, boarding schools, all-girls schools, all-boys schools and Catholic or other Christian high schools. This wide range of options gives students looking at schools in Canada great choices for their education.
Secondary-level education in Canada is overseen at the provincial level, not the federal level, which means there can be substantial differences between the provinces, and even between different school districts within a province. These include differences of terminology, grading, years of study, programs and curricula.
Many secondary schools offer intensive or specialized English as a Second Language (ESL) or French as Second Language (FSL) programs to help international students master the language of instruction and prepare for college or university admission. There are also some secondary schools that offer instruction in languages other than Canada's two official languages of French or English.
Likewise, tuition can vary depending on whether the student is looking to attend a Canadian public high school, a religiously-affiliated high school, or a private high school. Costs will also depend on whether they are at a boarding school or will need separate accommodation.
Regardless of affiliation, location, cost or school type, secondary schools in Canada are all held to provincial government standards of quality, ensuring that all international secondary school students in Canada have access to a world-class educational opportunity.
