Study with us in Alberta, Canada!
International Students: We invite you to consider the experience of a lifetime - studying English at a high school in rural Alberta. Grande Yellowhead Public School Division high schools follow the Alberta curriculum, which is recognized around the world for preparing students for an exciting and successful future.
Our five host high schools and communities are small enough to be safe yet large enough to offer full academic programs, many unique courses and a range of extracurricular activities. We have hosted students from Brazil, Hungary, the United States, Mexico, Germany, Russia, France, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and many other countries.
You will live with a caring host family who is interested in getting to know you and your family. Reasonable tuition and homestay fees make our International Student Program attractive to students and families around the world.

"Grande Yellowhead is an excellent place to learn, full of nature and nice people. Courses are hard and expectations are high, but teachers and staff are very supportive and encouraging. There are also many extracurricular activities including sports teams, yearbook, clubs, and trips. You will have a good experience in a friendly town."

"I am learning not only English but also the great lessons from nature that I could never learn from any other place I lived. Every morning, biking to school feeling a cool breeze from the Rocky Mountains, I realize how lucky I am to be in this special environment."
