The Greater Victoria School District’s Victoria International High School Programs has a long-standing reputation for offering high-quality academic and short-term programs to international students from around the world.
As part of the public education system, our programs are approved and accredited by the British Columbia Ministry of Education and include the following:
Academic High School Program – Students may choose to enroll in this program for one semester, one year, or stay until graduation. In addition to required courses, we offer ESL support, and a broad range of elective subjects, allowing students to tailor their studies to suite their individual interests and career goals.
Uplands Academic Transition Program – This innovative academic program supports international students with their transition into the Canadian public school environment. Instruction is offered in core subjects and students who successfully complete the program are eligible for credits and are guaranteed entrance into one of our high schools.
Short-Term High School Experience Program – The Short-Term program allows students to experience high school classes with Canadian students. In addition to ESL, students are integrated into classes that are more interactive (drama, art, physical education, etc.) giving them the opportunity to make Canadian friends and improve their English skills in less formal settings. Academic subjects are also available to those students who want an extra challenge.
Camp Victoria ESL Summer Program – Camp Victoria gives students the opportunity to improve their English in a fun supportive environment, make new friends and discover exciting cultural, sports and tourist activities in beautiful Victoria. This is a six-day a week program, offered in the months of July and August.
