The Canada Exchange Program
The Canada Exchange Program is specially designed for international high school students wishing to have a short to medium term study experience in Canada. Students study with us for a focused period, usually during a break, or brief absence, from their home school. Generally, non-credit students can make their study periods as long or short as desired. Credit students—those wishing to have academic credits recognized by their home school—can take advantage of our unique semester system. Every year we have five intake periods, and each semester is nine weeks. So credit students can have a study period as short as nine-weeks, after which the student would have earned two credits.

The best of both worlds. Braemar has designed this program to complement and enrich the work students are doing at their home school. The Braemar guidance department is able to work with the home school, ensuring that the course of study is relevant, comprehensive, and accurately evaluated. The Braemar experience includes fabulous fun! The combination of our unrivaled location in the heart of Toronto, and dynamic campus life make Braemar the perfect place for a teenager to have the experience of a lifetime!

Learn English
Our school has long experience working with international students who do not speak English as a first language. English ability is no prerequisite: we are glad to welcome students at all levels. Once the students arrive, they are tested and placed in an appropriate class. However, if students wish to earn credits toward their high school requirements back home, their English skills should be good enough to function in courses other than ESL.

After finishing their study period here, students can have their transcripts notarized by the local embassy of their home country. Under normal circumstances, and after consultation with your home school, this usually allows your credits to be transferred.

The Canadian experience also involves living with a Canadian family—one of our trusted and experienced homestay families.
