Central Okanagan School District

The Central Okanagan District is the 6th largest in the Province of British Columbia and includes the communities of Kelowna, Peachland, West Kelowna and Country Lake.

The District is characterized by the beauty of its mountains, lakes, countryside and vineyards. It is one of the main tourist destinations in Canada and one of the preferred places to live for Canadians. It offers a wide variety of recreational activities, cultural experiences and shopping centers.

The District offers students an English-speaking immersion in a safe, welcoming, and lively place. More than 98% of students have English as their first language and the District limits the enrollment of international students to ensure a unique cultural and educational experience for all students.

The stay in families is organized from the school with qualified personnel who are responsible for accepting, interviewing, inspecting and ensuring that all families have their criminal record certificate and pass a strict quality audit. The allocation of families is made taking into account the characteristics of the student.

Okanagan Central Public Schools is a progressive leader in education, setting the standard for educational excellence and striving to ensure that every student has opportunities to succeed.


Honesty is the cornerstone of relationships and the foundation of trust. It is the absence of falsehood and the action of complete revelation. It is the ultimate test of moral strength. When honesty is present, integrity will also be evident.
The responsibility is to be responsible for our actions and their consequences. When we demonstrate responsibility, we do our best to meet the expectations of ourselves and others.
Respect is "considered worthy of great respect." Being respectful is an attitude of honoring people and caring for their rights.
Empathy is a feeling of concern, compassion, and understanding of another person's situation or feelings.
While individual situations and differences are recognized, fairness guarantees fairness in which everyone follows the same rules.
