Every student is paired with an adviser or teacher to plan their development path, look for volunteer activities, and assist with university applications.
We have youth coordinators living on campus to provide support to our students when they need it. They supervise students’ daily life, study block, dorm cleaning schedule, etc.
All international students are required to enroll in the Medical Services Plan (MSP) provided by Health Insurance British Columbia (BC). Newly arrived students are eligible for coverage after completing a waiting period of 30-90 days. Students should purchase private health insurance during this waiting period. Students with no medical insurance or invalid coverage will not be permitted to attend class. The school will help students to purchase temporary medical insurance and enroll in MSP.
Laundry services are provided for both uniforms, linens and personal clothes. Laundry bags are provided for students to fill with dirty clothes which they can bring to the laundry room on set days. Laundry is to be dropped off in the morning before school and available to be picked up in the evenings. It is the students’ responsibility to ensure they get their clothes washed to have the appropriate clothes for the day.
