Program Features

Host Families

Students live with their host family on a full board basis. Families include their guest in their family activities and share important aspects of their culture. They share day-to-day life, including leisure and outings, and in return they are asked to comply with the family rules. Host families are local French-speaking families, screened and selected to ensure an optimal cultural experience.


Students stay in a hotel (Double occupancy.) located near the school. Breakfasts are taken at the hotel. Lunches and dinners are taken at school (lunches) or in restaurants near by. Edu-inter offers support 24/7, as well as weekly reports to inform parents of their children’s social and academic progress.

École Secondaire

The program is offered in collaboration with a number of high school-level institutions in Quebec City, called École Secondaire. In Quebec, the école secondaire covers grades 7 through 11, situated between elementary school and CEGEP. The CEGEP institutions prepare students to enter university. The institutions participating in this program include private schools and schools with special orientations.
