In 1996, the International Program within Saskatoon Public Schools was created to improve the cultural awareness of Saskatoon students. What started as a small program in one school (Evan Hardy Collegiate) has now grown to more than 160 students attending 7 high schools and 10 elementary schools. International students from around the world are welcomed and celebrated by faculty, staff and students.
Students ages 14-17 (Grades 9 - 12) may enroll in the following programs:
- Academic Program for High School Graduation
- Single-Term High School Experience
- International Baccalaureate (IB) Program
Students under the age of 14 (K – grade 8) may enroll in all elementary schools. These students must be accompanied by a parent for the duration of their stay in Saskatoon or until they enter Grade 9. We accept a limited number of K-8 students.
English as an Additional Language (EAL/ESL) is offered to students in Grades 1-12.
Specialized programs are also available to students registered in the Academic Program for High School Graduation. Such programs may include: Advanced Placement, Aviation Studies, Dance, Hockey, Languages, Mechanics, Media School, Outdoor School, Soccer, Softball, Vocational options and more. Please note that some programs require an additional application and/or fees.
We offer the opportunity to study in seven high schools located in Saskatoon:
Aden Bowman Collegiate
Bedford Road Collegiate
Evan Hardy Collegiate
Marion M. Graham Collegiate
Tommy Douglas Collegiate
Walter Murray Collegiate
Our schools range in student population from 500 – 1,400 with an average class size of 26. Each school offers the same high quality curriculum, taught by Ministry of Education licensed teachers. School placement is typically based on the location of the student’s homestay family or private custodian. If the school closest to the student's home is full, the student will be placed at the next school nearest their home.
