We are building an International Education program in our district to encourage students from other countries to attend our schools. We are a school district that welcomes all families. Many families that choose us do so because of our academic success and variety of programming options.

We are part of Alberta Education's International Education: Study in Alberta program, and we encourage students from China, Japan, Brazil, Mexico and other countires to expereince Alberta and its high quality of education. Explore one of the world’s best primary education system for yourself.  See what an Alberta education can offer you.  Alberta students consistently score top marks on national and international tests.  

Our schools offer safe and caring environments while maintaining high academic standards so you can obtain an Alberta High School Diploma.   

Students applying for a homestay experience will apply through the Canada Homestay Network. They are partners with Grande Prairie & District Catholic Schools and dedicated to providing all international students with a safe and caring family to support them during their stay in Grande Prairie.  Parents and students need to be aware there is a $350 charge for registration and the monthly rate for Grande Prairie is $800 CDN. You can apply by following this link directly to the application page.  Families interested in hosting can follow this link to an introduction of the hosting program with a link to the application at the bottom of the page.
