English as an Additional Language
Our English as an Additional Language (EAL) program is designed to meet the needs of both new Canadians (immigrants and refugees) and students in the International Student Program.
Experienced teachers provide instruction for all age levels with a focus on listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Classes are offered at all our schools.
We assess each student individually in order to determine what instruction or other support is needed.
- Students receive support in adapting to a different curriculum, school environment and Canadian culture.
- Students receive assistance in a school that is close to their homes.
- Additional support is available for students with special learning needs.
