All International visa students attending HSC require a guardian who will, in partnership with the parents and school, ensure the student’s success during their time at HSC.
Canadian Education Student Services (CESS) provides guardianship services for HSC and specializes in supporting the needs of students from application through to graduation. Students living with parents in the country for the full duration of their subsequent learning program may be exempted from this guardian requirement at the discretion of the Director of Admissions.
CESS guardianship package services for HSC host family students cost $2,000 annually. For international students living with their parents, the cost is $1,500. An additional one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $500 will apply to the students’ first year with CESS. All fees will be collected by HSC as part of enrolment and re-enrolment and remitted to CESS.
