    VIHSP’s Short-Term High School Experience Program provides international students with the opportunity to gain an insider’s view of life in a Canadian high school.  Students study English and attend classes alongside Canadian students their own age.

    Please see below for important changes to the Short-Term Program, effective September 2017.

    • The Short-Term Program is offered between mid-September to mid-June.
    • International students may attend high school in Canada without interrupting their studies at home.
    • Program durations:  2 or 3 months or 6 weeks (3 months only, beginning September 2017).
    • Classes include ESL instruction and support (if required) and elective courses that include full interaction with Canadian students.
    • Academic courses are available for those who want an extra challenge.
    • Students need a current passport.  A study permit is not required.
    • This program is designed for individual students and provides many opportunities for interaction with Canadians at school, at home, and in the community.
