International Education



The North Vancouver School District invites international students from around the world to study at any one of our highly acclaimed schools.

Students may choose to complete secondary school graduation or take a general studies program at one of our 6 Secondary or 25 Elementary schools.

Our learning environments are designed to ensure all students feel welcome, safe, respected and valued. At the North Vancouver School District, we strive to build a strong sense of belonging and real sense of community with our students.

We offer our students from Kindergarten to Grade 12 not only the highest possible standard of academic excellence but also access to more than 200 local and provincial programs and services to support their educational journey.

North Vancouver School District students excel as result of our comprehensive programming β€“ from academics to athletics, to the arts, and technology – all while enjoying a balanced education in a supportive environment.

Choosing the North Vancouver School District's International Education Program will ensure:

  • A high-quality, well-rounded education.
  • A chance to reside in nature's ultimate playground, North Vancouver, with easy access to the ocean, local mountains, forests and parks.
  • A reliable and easy public transit experience to explore the surrounding areas, including the world-class city of Vancouver right across the harbour.

Participation in both our International and Homestay programs help to foster relationships between international and Canadian students by sharing time, experiences, and cultural backgrounds.
