ESL and International Students Leadership Program

We offer an integrated ESL program specializing in students who wish to attend university in the USA, Canada, Europe and the Middle East. We are located in the heart of historic Halifax, Nova Scotia, in Canada.

Students in our program learn English with specially trained teachers in our academic program at a prestigious private school - King’s View Academy. Students study to prepare for university entrance. We offer the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Program which allows students to earn university credit while attending high school. Courses emphasize reading comprehension, grammar and composition skills, as well as all areas of mathematics including pre-calculus.

After an initial assessment, a profile is created for each student to determine their strengths and areas of remediation. Students work one-on-one with teachers to improve and enhance their skills. Visits to universities in the area, and help with preparing university applications are also arranged.
