Study in Mission School District

Mission is located in the Vancouver, Coast and Mountain region of British Columbia. We have a reputation for being caring, competent and innovative. In addition to a strong academic curriculum, we offer a wide range of programs and services to meet the diverse needs and interests of our students.

We firmly believe that when students come together from other parts of the world, we are all enriched by the global, international and intercultural exchange. Out of this experiential learning comes understanding, appreciation of diversity, and a greater ability to participate and contribute as citizens of the world.

District and location details

Mission is located just 1 hour east of Vancouver and 15 minutes north of the US border on Canada's beautiful west coast.

97% of Mission's population speaks English, providing an excellent English immersion environment for our international students.

Mission, one of the most beautiful and geographically diverse communities in British Columbia, is nestled between the Fraser River and the scenic foothills of the Coastal Range.

With a natural playground in our backyard and the skyline of Vancouver in our front yard, Mission offers a lifestyle like no other in the Lower Mainland.

International students at Mission will live and study in a safe, friendly community with a moderate climate throughout the year. Mild winter temperatures average 5 degrees Celsius and hot summer weather averages 25 degrees Celsius.

Host family accommodation

Host families are selected exclusively by the district, and are characterized by their desire to welcome the participant as one more member and share their day-to-day life and culture with them. The participant is the ONLY Spanish speaker in the house during the program.

When assigning the host families, all the preferences and special needs that the participant exposes at the registration are considered, especially allergies, fear of pets or medical conditions. The participant can be sure that their host family exceeds the quality expectations of the program and, if this is not the case, they will be immediately assigned a new one.

However, economic reasons, race, religion or food status of the host family (vegetarianism, veganism...) do not constitute valid reasons to request a family change according to Red Leaf policy, since these families meet the requirements established by Red Leaf.

International program

The programs include a large number of activities and sports with which to enrich the experience that they will be able to obtain in MPSD.

Some of them are: advanced placement, business, French immersion, fine and performing arts, chef training, applied skills, technical education including robotics and 3D printing, physical education, and community recreation programs, as well as sports academies including hockey, lacrosse, and academy of golf...
