The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board welcomes international students into our secondary schools each year. These students come from Asia, Europe, Mexico, and South America. Some come to improve their English or experience living in North America. Others plan to pursue Canadian postsecondary opportunities.
They stay with families in our community. By living among us, students learn about our culture, faith and values; these are lessons that we hope will have a life shaping influence which they can carry back to enrich their home communities. In turn, they share their culture, faith and values with the students of Nicholson. We hope that these influences will provide our students with genuine a understanding and appreciation for other cultures.
English as a Second Language (ESL) courses and peer supports are provided as required for English Language Learners (ELL). For more information about this program, please visit the International Education page on the school board's main site.
