Students join a Canadian elementary or high school for one semester (5 months) or a full year (10 months). Students can choose to be placed in a public, private or Catholic school with complete immersion into school life. Red Leaf places the student in a caring Canadian host family who has gone through rigorous
background checks and has been carefully selected. Our families treat the student as another family member and integration is a very important component of the program, contributing greatly to the success of the program.
For the duration of their stay, the student will experience authentic Canadian life, discover different habits and customs, make friends from different countries, and become more independent and open-minded.
