Overview

The Palliser School Division is a public school system located in southern Alberta that offers international students the opportunity to attend faith-based or secular schools in a variety of friendly and safe communities. The results show their commitment to high-quality instruction, small class sizes, and individual attention. Palliser takes great pride in providing specialized services to international students. This includes operating our own homestay program and ensuring each student feels safe and comfortable. Our in-house international student programming allows us to personalize student experiences and Palliser can arrange for tours and activities while international students are staying in Canada. Our schools welcome international students and provide them with a rich learning environment and a wonderful experience that will last well beyond their stay in Canada. Temperatures and weather conditions can vary widely across southern Alberta but generally, our summers are warm and dry and winters are cold and snowy. Southern Albertans enjoy the great outdoors all year, with skiing and snowboarding popular in winter, and camping, hiking, and fishing in summer. Southern Alberta is known for its blue skies and sunshine all year round. The scenic prairie views and its proximity to the mountains make southern Alber ta one of the best areas for outdoor activities all year long.
The Palliser School Division has schools within the city of Calgary and is close to the city of Lethbridge.  Lethbridge is approximately 2 hours from Calgary. Lethbridge is well known for its scenic prairie landscapes and is home to one of the highest and longest railway bridges in the world.
