Students are placed with an English-speaking host family, allowing them to improve his/her English language skills while experiencing Canadian culture firsthand.

The fees outlined above include room and board, tuition fees and all school supplies.
Every student placed with a host family is treated as one of the family. Host families will invite students to take part in regular family activities such as a visit to the local park, a trip to the cinema, dining out and family get-togethers and celebrations (i.e. Thanksgiving).

Please be assured that host families are screened for compatibility to ensure the best match between each student and the family assigned to them. The activities of normal, everyday life are discussed with the family prior to confirming a place for the student.

Departing: Lycée Exchange program
(from Lycée to Lycée)

A Lycée Louis Pasteur (LLP) student can be paired with an exchange student from a partner Lycée. Both students attend one school at the same time for one trimester and spend the other trimester in the other school. You will still pay your tuition at LLP and only have to cover the extra cost abroad (i.e. flights, extracurricular activities, trips, sightseeing etc). Students who have attended this program experience diversity and cross-cultural understanding in their own home and overseas and expand their knowledge of the culture and language of the hosted student and family abroad.
