As a student in the Newfoundland International Student Education Program (NISEP), you will live in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada’s newest province. It is an area internationally recognized for its hospitality and the warmth of its people, making it one of the friendliest and safest places in the world. The NISEP program offers students an opportunity to live and learn at the site where North America begins. It is a place where you can photograph herds of caribou or seabird colonies, icebergs, or whales, still unspoiled by the urbanization of North America.
International students can begin their studies at the academy at any point in their high school career. Students who start when they are younger find it easier to learn English and integrate into the school.
In addition to the high school program, international students have access to non-credit ESL courses offered during the summer through the Peel District School Board’s Continuing Education department. Counsellors at the academy can help students determine if these extra courses are a good option for them.
