Family Boarding Programme

The Family Boarding Programme is organized by the Director of Admissions at Aberdeen Hall. The programme involves international students living with carefully selected Canadian families, many of whom are Aberdeen Hall families. Family Boarding is a wonderful opportunity for international students to experience first-hand how a Canadian family lives. By living in a Canadian home, sharing meals, speaking English, and participating in the family’s daily activities, students are fully immersed in Canadian culture in a welcome and supportive environment.  All host families undergo the school’s screening process, including personal interviews, a home inspection and police checks.
