Canada

In Canada, each province and territory is responsible for its own education system. All elementary and secondary schools in Canada can enroll international students.


State system of school education In Canada, each province and territory is responsible for its own education system. Schools in which students study up to the 12th grade are called primary and secondary schools. Primary school covers grades 1-8, and middle school covers grades 9-12. Depending on the province or territory, they can start primary school at age 4 and finish high school when they turn 18. Parents or guardians choose the school system. Depending on where you live, options may include:

  • free public schools;

  • paid private schools;

  • studying at home;

  • English or French schools.

Contact your local ministry or department of education for more information on study options. All elementary and secondary schools in Canada can enroll international students. Public high school or high school is free in Canada for residents. Many schools charge fees to international students, which can range from approximately CAD 8,000 to CAD 14,000 per year. For information on the cost of tuition, if any, you should contact the school directly. Information for Ukrainians 2022 If you are a citizen of Ukraine or a family member of a citizen of Ukraine, you can come to Canada under the Canada-Ukraine Emergency Exit Permit (CUAET) for up to 3 years or until your passport expires. CUAET is one of a number of special measures of the Canadian government in support of the people of Ukraine. The program provides Ukrainians and their family members with extended temporary resident status and allows them to work, study and stay in Canada until they can safely return to their homeland. You can also apply for a study permit after you arrive in Canada. Your application will be prioritized and you will be exempt from paying the study permit processing fee.

Entry requirements for elementary or secondary school in Canada may include:

  • the presence of documents showing the completion of a certain number of classes that correspond to the grade levels in Canada;

  • fluency in English or French;

  • transcripts of grades or study results from your home country.

List of documents In addition to the already mentioned documents:

  • Birth Certificate;

  • a document on the establishment of guardianship or guardianship;

  • proof of residence;

  • vaccination record (to confirm that your child's vaccinations are up to date).

Features of private schools Canada also has private high schools. They charge a fee to visit. Private schools must provide the same curriculum as public schools in the province or territory. This ensures that students follow the same course of study as in the public school system. Class sizes in private schools are often smaller than in public schools. Some private schools will have a religious curriculum as well as standard school subjects. Sometimes private schools are created for boys only or for girls only. Private secondary schools include:

  • boarding schools;

  • alternative schools;

  • international bachelor programs;

  • specialized sports programs;

  • schools for students with disabilities.
