Academic Preparation Program
The Academic Preparation Program (APP) is an introduction to the Canadian high school curriculum for students ages 13-17. Using a theme-based approach to create an engaging learning environment, students will improve their English skills rapidly. Classes include mathematics, science, social studies and fine arts, as well as physical education. The program eases students into the new academic year by setting the standard of expectation reserved for the high school program.
APP offers a variety of excursions in and around the city of Vancouver. Excursions allow students to learn outside the classroom and experience Canada’s culture and people. Students will visit famous landmarks, attractions and become familiar with the city.
The program utilizes the high school's on-site boarding residence, with rooms accommodating 2-4 students. Bedrooms have breathtaking views of either the waterfront to the south or the mountains to the north. There are student lounges with audio-visual equipment, computers, and a kitchenette for snacks. The residence is managed by our experienced live-in directors and supervisors. Three nutritious meals and an evening snack are provided by the school cafeteria each day.
