INTERNATIONAL STUDENT GUARDIANSHIP


It is important that each of our International visa students have a Canadian guardian who will, in partnership with the parents, support the child’s success during their time at HSC. Students who are a part of our Homestay program, or are living with parents that are unable to communicate with the school in English, will be required to register with our Guardianship partner, Canadian Education Student Services (CESS).
