ESL Summer Program
A Truly Canadian Experience.

Learn English and experience the wonders of summer at our 42-acre campus, an ideal location for a unique program that combines intellectual learning with a summer vacation in Ontario, Canada.
The ESL Summer Program is well-balanced between classroom activities during the day and evening/weekend activities designed for entertainment and as a means to further improve English skills. All aspects of the program provide opportunity for leadership development and personal growth through peer support, creative problem-solving and team-building.
Students enjoy the excellent residential, dining, academic, athletic and social facilities of one of Canada’s oldest independent schools focused on providing students with the social conscience, confidence and skills to shape the future.
Students benefit from small classes, twelve students per instructor. Classroom instruction is directed to the skills that are needed in school study. Practical assignments are given and include computer instruction. The ESL Summer Program focuses on reading, writing, speaking and oral comprehension.
Students aged 14 to 18 years of age have the option to compliment the ESL Summer Program with the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) Preparatory Course. The TOEFL Preparatory Course measures the ability of non-native speakers of English to use and understand English as it is spoken, written and heard in school settings.
