The Hastings Prince Edward District School Board invites students from around the world to Come Study with Us . As a leader in Ontario in curriculum development our students have an excellent record for admissions to colleges and universities in Canada. Over 95 percent of our students who apply to post-secondary institutions are accepted to their first choice. Each year our graduates are recognized nationally and provincially. Our International Student Program (ISP) is open to all students from Grades 7 to 12. With eight secondary and 46 elementary schools, the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board covers a wide geographical area of 7,221 square kilometres. We offer excellent programs which prepare our students to meet global challenges. Our program is selective and limited in numbers. To qualify the applicant requires a minimum of a “C” and must have positive comments from teachers or principal on his or her moral character and work ethic. Your first choice f Homestay families The International Student Program selects local families to participate in a unique international experience by inviting an international student into their family to provide a healthy learning environment. While staying with a local family, students develop their English skills, complete their studies, and engage in Canadian culture. Students are provided with a private room, three meals a day, seven days a week, and access to laundry facilities. Each host family participates in an in-home interview, an orientation session, and undergoes a criminal background and reference check. A fee of $700 CDN per month is paid to homestay families by students. The first five months of fees plus the Homestay Placement Fee of $250 CDN are invoiced with tuition and are due prior to arrival. Our program fees include: • A full academic program • English as a Second Language credit courses • Use of text books Support services from the ISP academic advisor Regular reports to parents on the student’s progress • After school tutorials, 4 days a week
