Delta School District is located in the Vancouver area of British Columbia, Canada, just 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver and 20 minutes from the Vancouver airport. Surrounded by the ocean, the Fraser River and mountains, Delta is a convenient, beautiful and safe location for students to study.
Delta is consistently in the Top 3 in the province for graduation rates. International students are accepted to top universities around the world and earn hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of scholarships each year. We are committed to supporting students to be successful in their high school courses and transition to the university programs of their choice. Students are immersed in Canadian courses with Canadian students throughout their time in Delta, with appropriate ESL support as needed.
We are especially proud of the support we provide students here in Delta. We personalize the experience of each student, placing them in a school and homestay that best fits their needs and interests. We run our own homestay program and custodianship program, so are responsible for student care 24 hours a day.
Every school has an International Coordinator and there is a District Administrator of student support assigned to each student. Students have access to our Vietnamese speaking student support staff as well.
We wish all of our students a safe, healthy and successful experience in a beautiful Canadian environment.
