Every international student, irrespective of the age and length of intended stay in Québec, will need to apply for the Québec Acceptance Certificate (CAQ). If the student plans to study in Québec for more than 6 months, or if they cannot apply an eTA to come to Canada, they should apply for a Study Permit as well, after the approval of their CAQ. The CAQ will take about at least 1 month to process, and the Study Permit will take about 3 months.
In addition to the non-refundable application fee of $210, the annual tuition fees for a youth international student are about $14 000 for the school year 2023-2024. Other costs may apply. The instructions for payment are specified in the Statement of Account, which will be sent to the parents when their child’s application is approved. The full amount of tuition fees is payable at least 14 days before the first date of school.
Our schools are English public schools, a youth international student can study in our schools for a maximum of 3 years, depending on the CAQ and the Study Permit eventually obtained. We can accept short stays, such as 3 or 5 months, depending on the spaces available in our schools.
The acceptance of elementary students depends on the capacity of our elementary schools. Please email email@example.com for enquiry before you make an online application in our True North portal.
Yes, we can arrange homestay for our international students at additional costs.
To obtain a Québec high school diploma, the student must gain 54 credits in 2 years – Sec 4 (grade 10) and Sec 5 (grade 11) – in a Québec school.
To be accepted into RSB International Student Education Program, we require that students have an intermediate to advanced level of English so that they can comprehend, perform and pass each subject. Please note that there is an English Language requirement:
– Secondary III students will need a B1 level (IELTS exam level of 4.5 to 5.5 or TOEFL 32-59) + our local oral examination
– Secondary IV and V students will need a B2 level (IELTS exam level of 5.5 to 6.5 or TOEFL 60-93) + our local oral examination.
As school places are limited and it takes time to get the CAQ and Study permit, please enroll as soon as possible. For September, we propose that the student registers by mid-May at the latest.
Students are usually assigned to schools according to their address/host family address. Special requests may be made but we cannot guarantee if we can entertain them.
