Fall term 2021


At this time we are waiting for direction from the government to determine if a quarantine period for international travellers will be necessary for the start of the school year.

If a quarantine is mandated the School will facilitate a Quarantine program for arriving students to start on Tuesday, August 24th, 2021 at The Hilton Doubletree Hotel in Victoria.
