The Comox Valley School District has 8500 students in a community of 70,000 people. We welcome 300 international students each year from over 25 countries. The International Student Program is dedicated to offering personalized education to international students from around the world. Since 2005, they have been empowering students and helping them develop a global mindset while fostering their emotional and academic intelligence. Individual care, student support, and advanced curriculum have made us stand out.

Nestled between Mt. Washington Ski Resort and the ocean, the Comox Valley is literally minutes away from every aspect of an outdoor adventures playground and is located halfway up the east coast of Vancouver Island.
