School Immersion in Winnipeg, Manitoba – 14-18 years old – 1 term to 1 school year
This program is available to motivated students aged 14 to 18 who wish to spend one semester or one year in a Canadian high school (secondary education) and share the daily life of a Canadian host family. Our partner operates with a network of schools in the district of Winnipeg, capital city of Manitoba, and offers a diverse curriculum of courses adapted to the levels of participants. Our students enjoy full access to all of the school’s sports, clubs and associations.
Canada is the second largest country in the world by surface area and one of the world’s geographical miracles. It stretches from the Pacific to the Atlantic ocean and shares its borders with Alaska in the north-east and the US to the south. This country is home to almost every climate on earth, from the wind-swept tundra of the North Territories to the temperate rain forests and mountains of British Columbia. Canada is home to the world’s largest freshwater lakes and large amounts of pine forests.
Our partner schools are situated in Winnipeg in the central province of Manitoba, the 8th largest city in Canada (800,000 inhabitants). The region is known for its lakes, its numerous cultural activities (festivals, theatres, operas) and its geography: the region does not have many mountains, which allows cross-country skiers to practice their sport.
Winnipeg is a fantastic choice of destination for foreign students. It lets young people discover the life of a real Canadian city, with a much lower living costs than in Vancouver or Toronto. The quality of teaching is just as excellent as elsewhere in the country.
The climate is typically Canadian: the summers are hot (up to 28°C), and the winters are dry and cold, with the temperature able to drop as low as -28°C. But the city is equipped for low temperatures.
