The school system in 10 provinces of Canada and 3 territories is dominated by the bilingual and multicultural character of society. The administration of the school system in Canada is in the hands of the provinces. Gymnasium in Canada is an “all day school” school and requires 12 years to complete, same as Albania. Foreign students are usually classified in grade 11.
The school year in Canada starts in early September and ends in June.
Foreign students have the opportunity to start school in the following periods:

For a variety of compulsory and optional courses you have the option to choose your schedule in an individual way. Four subjects (subjects) can be selected for one semester in most schools. Subjects can be changed in semester 2 in order to get a total of eight school year subjects. In most of our partner schools we also offer French language classes.
After class, you stay in “extracurricular activities” at school. Sports in Canada is very important, there are many sports teams in all schools. Ski, snowboarding, ice hockey, LaCrosse, swimming, tennis, golf, basketball, football, outdoor education and much more.
