With over 1,000 full-time students, the NSISP is one of the largest international student programs in Canada. The Strait Regional School Board is currently hosting students from 14 countries in a variety of programs, including Short Term Programs, Teacher Internship Programs and academic semesters/full academic years at the junior high and senior high level. We are committed to providing an excellent education and homestay environment to all international students, and the students are given the opportunity to choose from a variety of subjects focusing on arts, sciences, languages, and computers. The subjects are taught under the careful supervision of certified teachers. All schools follow curriculum set by the provincial government. Students can also choose from a variety of extracurricular activities such as soccer, volleyball, basketball, curling, skiing, and creative art to name a few. Students are closely matched with a host family who lives in the area they will attend school. Education in Nova Scotia – It is a place to grow.
