Study with Canadian Students: Welcome to the Nanaimo-Ladysmith International Student Education (ISE Nanaimo) Program. For more than a decade high school students from many nations of the world have been studying in Nanaimo to take advantage of the top-quality Canadian education that we offer. Some students come to improve their English skills and to learn about Canadian culture while advancing their knowledge in mathematics, sciences, social studies. Others come to graduate with a British Columbia High School Diploma in order to advance to university.

We encourage you to study with us to reap the benefits of this quality education, and to experience Canadian culture and the lifestyle of beautiful Vancouver Island. Nanaimo and Ladysmith are beautiful seaside communities located on the east coast of Vancouver Island, only minutes by air from Vancouver.

A Home Away From Home

An International Student lives with an English-speaking Canadian homestay family who takes the place of the student’s natural family for a time. The homestay family also plays an important role in the improvement of the student’s English and understanding of Canadian culture.

The homestay will:

  • assume responsibility for the care of the student
  • provide encouragement and support
  • provide all meals
  • provide a private room that is warm, clean, and that has a study desk.
  • act on behalf of the parent in the case of an emergency
