Kindergarten to Grade 5 international students are normally required to live with a close relative (parent, grandparent, blood aunt or uncle).
Grade 6 and older students, not living with a close relative, are placed with one of our wonderful and loving homestay families.
RCA offers an excellent Homestay Program to all students requiring a home to live in while studying.
These are carefully selected homes that provide safe, caring environments for our international students and offer invaluable opportunities to practice English and experience Canadian family life and culture.
Our homestay parents drive their students to and from school and any school-related events.
Students are also provided a hot lunch in our full-service cafeteria as part of the Homestay Program. All homestay families are required to pass a criminal record check to ensure a safe environment for our students.
All of our International students who do not live with a parent must have a guardian who lives in the local area, though it is not necessary for the student to be living with them.
