*New Program* Home to Home Australia. Take part in a unique 2 way exchange program between Canada and Australia where students in Canada and Australia are 'matched', spend 3 months with each others families and attend school. It amounts to twice the experience at a fraction of the cost of a classic 3 month exchange program! Please note this program is available at participating school boards only, a reciprocal exchange must be possible. Please inquire for a list of participating school boards. See more info here

High school is divided into Junior Secondary, for years seven to ten, and Senior Secondary for years eleven and twelve. High schools are either co-educational, or designated for girls or boys only.

There is much to see and do in Australia. A student’s life here is a fun, exciting mix of academics and adventure. This is a journey worthy of more than just credits.
