Saanich School District

Saanich School District is located on the beautiful west coast of British Columbia and enjoys the best climate in all of Canada, in the city of Sydney. Saanich is a safe and welcoming community with a high level of quality of life, surrounded by impressive landscapes, a spectacular Pacific Ocean, mountains, beaches, parks, etc.

The key to the success of this international program rests on the team of advisors dedicated to providing academic and emotional support to students and informing, advising, and encouraging student participation in school programs.

There are three coordinators who closely follow the evolution of the students in the host families, who are selected for their interest in learning other cultures, an open and respectful attitude and for their willingness to integrate young people into their home.
