Cornwall is only a one-hour drive from both the cosmopolitan city of Montreal and our nation's capital, Ottawa. People in Eastern Ontario are friendly and involved in their communities. Our towns and cities are vibrant and our citizens are involved in local sports, arts, politics, clubs and charitable events.


Number of courses / system: Semestered

Accomodation: Homestay

Info: We partner with Canada Homestay Network (CHN), the largest and most experienced homestay company in Canada. Each host family is interviewed, screened, and approved by CHI staff prior to student placement. Each student has his/her own private bedroom with a suitable study area, access to the Internet and to the entire home's facilities, including meals and transportation. The homestay families will give students from other countries an opportunity to experience Canadian culture, customs, and language, and also provide the encouragement and the support required to help their students throughout their stay. Many of them are our teachers! Students are expected to become part of the family and to participate in leisure activities. Spending money is the responsibility of the student.

Student Services & Orientation & Counseling:

Each student will be provided with a individualized placement plan. All new students will participate in an orientation program which covers many topics related to their upcoming school program and life in Canada. All students receive ongoing support and assistance in school and are assigned an experienced homestay coordinator to monitor the home life. Our caring and supportive school staff monitor each student’s academic pathway and progress and keep them on course to achieve their academic goals.
