The Application Process

Step 1: Submit An Application

All applicants are required to submit the following:

Please send the completed application form and all supporting documentation to:

Island Catholic Schools International Student Program 
880 McKenzie Avenue
Victoria, BC  V8X 3G5
Email: Director of International Education
 

Step 2: Interview With the Director of International Education

After the application form, required supporting documentation, and application fee have been submitted, the Director of International Education will contact you to arrange the next step in the admissions process, a Skype interview.  Following this interview, an English Proficiency Testing may also be required at all grade levels.
 

Step 3: Acceptance

After review of supporting documentation and assessments, applicants who are serious in their interest in St. Andrew’s are given consideration for admission. It is the school's policy to advise prospective families of admission acceptance as soon as possible. Notification of acceptance is sent via letter which will include the invoice for international student fees. Once the tuition fees have been received by ICS, a letter of confirmation stating that tuition fees have been paid in full will be issued for immigration purposes. 

Custodianship

Immigration Canada requires that all international students under the age of 18 appoint a custodian to act in their parents place.  This is a legal requirement that must be met in order for the student to reside and study in Canada.  If you wish, Island Catholic Schools is able to act as the student's custodian, please refer to the International tuition fee schedule for the cost of this service.

Non-Acceptance

When it is clear St. Andrew’s is not the right fit for the student, or will have difficulty being admitted because of limited space, prospective parents are immediately advised. These difficult decisions are made with careful consideration and with the best interest of the student in mind. If an applicant is not granted a place due to availability of space, the student will be automatically wait-listed and may be reconsidered in light of unexpected enrollment changes in the late spring and summer.

Testimonials
This is how I explain what religion at this school teaches me. Sure I learn the history and analyze the Bible, but I also have been forming a set of morals and values that will go with me for the rest of my life. They are the foundation of who I am.

I am very excited to be able to link my Olympic journey, full of trials and tribulations, back to a very important time and place in my life: St. Andrew's Regional High School.
