INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS INFORMATION
Archbishop Carney Regional Secondary School welcomes students from all over the world to become members of our school community. Our primary commitment is to educate students in a Catholic environment, to challenge them to excel in all virtuous aspects of life, and to encourage them to use their gifts in the service of the community. Our experienced faculty members offer education of the highest quality. We work together to further our students’ interest in and knowledge of their cultural heritage and encourage a respect for other cultures. We develop the spiritual, moral, physical and intellectual well-being of all our students.
We offer international students Grade 8-12 curriculum and the graduation program defined by the Ministry of Education of the Province of British Columbia, Canada.
Students in our international programs who successfully complete the requirements for high school graduation in British Columbia receive a Dogwood Certificate which meets entrance requirements for colleges, universities and other post-secondary institutions within the province, country and abroad. Many of our international graduates go on to attend leading universities throughout North America such as University of British Columbia (UBC), McGill, University of Toronto (UT) and Simon Fraser University (SFU).
High levels of academic standards, English fluency, commitment to academic success and active participation in our school community are essential qualities of our students. Only those outstanding students who are successful in an interview with our International Educational Programs Director are offered enrollment at our school. Therefore, admission into our programs is competitive and spaces are limited. Less than 8% of our student population is part of our international programs.
Students in our programs are integrated within the classroom and are offered 4 types of additional support.
Our English Language Learning course focuses English language fluency.
Our language support course for new international students provides extra assistance with language based subjects like English, Social Studies and Christian Education.
Our teaching assistants aid international students in language based classrooms.
Our social support system provides help for new international students to adapt to their new lives in Canada.
