Pretty River Academy international students are hosted by fully-vetted local happy families to provide the comforts of home. Each family is carefully selected to ensure our international students have the best possible experience when they are studying in Canada.
Students are integrated into the daily life of an English-speaking Canadian family. Each student is provided at minimum:
- Private room
- Bed, Dresser, Desk, Closet
Food is supplied for the student to make their own breakfast each day and lunch on weekends. Snacks and lunch are of course included at school. Dinners each evening are prepared by the homestay parent and shared at the family table.
Homestay parents provide transportation to and from school each day. This total immersion in Canadian culture and English are keys to the success of Pretty River Academy students after graduation. Students are supported in learning and practicing the English language at all times.
Homestay families and students provide monthly feedback to our administrative team to ensure that students have the best possible homestay experience. Our administrative team checks Homestay families and students regularly.
