The Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic School District is located on the shores of
Lake Ontario, approximately 200 km east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Our schools are in three small safe cities located in Trenton (population 17,000), Belleville (population 47,000) and Kingston (population 100,000).

An excellent pre-university secondary school program is available. This is for students 14 to 19 years of age and leads to an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). Students may begin the program either in February or September. You can come for a short period of five to six months, one year or until the completion of Secondary School.

The percentage of international students is less than 3% of our population of students. This allows for a true Canadian cultural experience while studying in one of our five secondary schools.

During the school year the student lives with a Canadian homestay family. A private room, three meals a day and access to the home’s facilities are provided. The student will enjoy the security and care of life with a Canadian family.

English as a second language is offered in all secondary schools. The length of the course adapts to the needs of student.

We invite you to "COME STUDY WITH US" in a safe, reliable, exciting and academically challenging school!
