In this all-inclusive, four-week program held in July and August 2023, students ages 12-16 years old from around the world join their peers at Appleby College in Oakville, Canada for language learning and immersion in Canadian culture. Canadian values prevail in our boarding community which fosters a sense of inclusion, respect, belonging and acceptance for all students and staff.
