Students in a school hallwayInternational Education

New Westminster Schools offers an International Education Program that is committed to providing students with high academic standards and a challenging educational environment. We believe that through academic preparation and study, personal attention, and integration into the Canadian academic and social environment, we provide our international students with a strong foundation for success in their chosen careers and future endeavors.

We host students from around the world in various long-term and short-term programs. As our world becomes more interconnected, our program provides students with the opportunity for academic success, greater understanding, friendships, and a wide variety of skills to succeed in a quickly changing world.

New Westminster Schools is a leader in Canadian international education. We hosted our first international students in 1987 making us one of Canada’s longest running public school international education programs. Based on our close to 30 years of experience and ‘know-how,” parents can choose New Westminster for their son or daughter knowing that they are receiving the support required to be successful away from home.

Our program is located in one of the most beautiful, secure and comfortable regions in the world. We invite you to learn more about us and to consider the many benefits the International Education Program in New Westminster has to offer.
