School Profile

Chilliwack School District has been welcoming international students from around the world for the last 26 years. We are a beautiful, friendly city of 100,000 inhabitants. We’re surrounded by gorgeous mountains, forests, 3 lakes and 2 rivers that flow right through the city and yet we are just 1 hour by car from cosmopolitan Vancouver. We intentionally keep our Program small so we can offer personalized service to our international students. With nearly 100% of our homestay families and 98% of our students having English as their first language we are geared to student success!
