New Experiences

A very important part of this program is getting the students oriented with Toronto and Canadian culture. That is why outside of daily classes students will have the opportunity to go to places such as Niagara Falls and Canada’s Wonderland, watch hockey and basketball games and experience cultural traditions such as apple picking, Halloween and Christmas. Students will also attend workshops on study skills, food culture, health care support and applying to universities for degree completion.
