Chilliwack School District
The Chilliwack School District offers international students an exceptional educational program. The District encourages the learning of foreign languages, such as English or French, as their respective cultures.
The District offers updated and modern facilities, such as computers, bookstores, arts room, science rooms, among others. Students are free to explore their best talents. As for the arts programs, it has classes in guitar, theater, cinema, music ...
The sports they offer are quite a physical challenge, but also a mental stimulus, ice hockey, curling and "ultimate frisbee" are some examples.
The Chilliwack community has beautiful gardens and public parks, plus lakes and waterfalls just minutes from town. Throughout the year they celebrate different and varied fairs and competitions that enrich the student's stay. To all this, it is added that the city is only an hour from Vancouver.
The number of international students is very limited to ensure that each student receives the individual attention necessary to guarantee educational success. 98% of students speak English as their native language and this offers a unique immersion opportunity for international students as they make Canadian friends, improve their vocabulary and achieve educational success.
In addition, the Colleges, together with the community, offer extensive sports programs and numerous clubs. All of this makes Chilliwack a fun place to learn, play, and make new friends.
We believe that student literacy, academic achievement, and social development are central to everything we do. We believe in a safe, caring, equitable, responsible and collaborative learning and working environment where our goal is for each student to graduate prepared for post-graduation opportunities.
We believe that when students in the international program meet here from other parts of the world, they learn from each other and benefit from the bonds of friendship that are formed. In turn, we all understand and accept the richness of our diversity and we work hard to strengthen relationships between people from different countries.
"Partners in learning"
We are proud of our relationships with our educational partners, including parents, businesses, service clubs, and other community organizations. Community support is evident through our Work Experience and Apprenticeship programs, scholarships, and community representation on various school district committees.
Our goal is to continue to improve and respond well to the future needs of our students and the community.
