Why choosing a boarding school in Canada?

Canada is a vibrant and flourishing country, offering top quality education and a variety of opportunities to both domestic and international students. While there are several reasons to choose Canada as a study destination, below are a few of the most noteworthy:

Quality of life
Global rankings consistently list Canada among the highest with respect to political freedom, economic stability, quality of life, and education.

Canada’s reputation for safety allows parents and students to feel comfortable selecting a Canadian institution for their child’s or their own international educational experience.

International Environment
The country’s composition, a true cultural mosaic, holds great appeal for many. Canada’s immigration policies have helped it earn the reputation as a country that welcomes diversity and have created a warm and inviting environment for international students and their families. What’s more, students benefit in a myriad of ways from immersion in such a varied, dynamic, and liberal society.

Canada’s focus on bilingualism attracts students interested in studying one or both of the country’s official languages, English and French.

Opportunities in North America
Canadian boarding schools are pathways to higher education and employment opportunities in North America. A Canadian boarding school education prepares students for admission to the world’s most prestigious colleges and universities (including top Canadian universities – University of Toronto, McGill University, Queen’s University, University of Waterloo), and increases their qualifications for employment in Canada, the United States, and worldwide.

The country’s high levels of development, modern infrastructure, beautiful topography, clean environment, and changing seasons all combine to make Canada a unique and attractive option for international families.

The geographical location of Canada and its proximity to South America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa, namely, make it a desirable study destination. The availability of direct flights to and from major world cities serves as an added bonus.

The cost of education in Canada relative to many other countries, given the current global economic climate, allows Canadian schools to remain strong competitors in the international boarding school market.
