International Applicants

Halifax, Nova Scotia is one of the safest places in the world. In addition to extensive health and safety protocols in our province and at our School, Canada has the highest vaccine rate in the world. This means our international students can live and study safely while enjoying an in-person, on-campus education and experience. In addition to being on the Designated Learning Institute list, we have an approved Quarantine Plan in place for the  2021-22 Academic Year. You can learn more here

Sacred Heart School of Halifax offers international students access to a first-class education while they continue to improve their English skills in one of the most vibrant and beautiful cities in Canada. As part of our program, students have access to English as an Additional Language (EAL) program where they can get as much support as they need, and they can take part in a variety of clubs and extra-curricular programs like debate, robotics, band, drama, and yearbook. As part of their experience here, students also learn about Halifax and Nova Scotia through a wealth of fun outings and field trips. This can include activities like ice-skating on the Emera Oval, city tours on the Harbour Hopper, a visit to Sugar Moon Farm to learn about maple syrup, watching Halifax Mooseheads hockey games, and pizza and movie nights.

  • Living with a host family as part of our Homestay Program, including private room, study area, all meals, and participation in family life
  • Health insurance
