In addition to the Sports-Study program offered at Louis-Riel High School and the Arts program offered by De La Salle High School, our board also has a Leadership Camp which is offered over the summer in French to students aged 13 to 17 years old. This camp takes place in a relaxed setting where students alternate their days between classroom instruction by a qualified teacher, followed by educational and cultural activities in French. Many opportunities are given to students so they can practice speaking French to new-found friends, locals, and their host families.

Location: City

Info: Ottawa, die Hauptstadt Kanadas mit 1,2 Millionen Einwohnern, ist eine der multikulturellsten Städte Nordamerikas mit mehrsprachiger Prägung. Ottawa gilt als eine sehr sichere Stadt in einer offenen und freundlichen Region. Diese lebendige und kulturell wie sportlich geprägte Metropole hat europäischen Schülern vieles zu bieten.

Kanada ist für sein modernes, schülerzentriertes und reichhaltiges Bildungsangebot bekannt. Das Lehrprogramm des Schulbezirkes CEPEO, Conseil des écoles publiques, in Ottawa bietet außergewöhnliche Möglichkeiten für alle Begabungen und Interessen. Ein Jahr in Ottawa wird somit zu einem ganz besonderen Schuljahr in einer Schule nach Maß. Anders als in vielen europäischen Schulen können vielfältige Schwerpunkte gewählt werden.

Info: Homestay accommodation is available for international students through the CEPEO's International Student program.
