Aberdeen Hall School charges an additional International/Out-of-Province Fee of $3,300. The government of British Columbia provides operating grants to the school for most students enrolled in the School. Parents of students must be British Columbia residents and have Canadian Citizenship, or Landed Immigrant Status, or possess a valid work permit for employment in British Columbia for the grant to be received by the school. The International/Out-of-Province Fee shall apply to parents of students who do not meet these criteria. The grant is applied for by the school and is in addition to the tuition fee. Please note the International/Out-of-Province Fee is applicable to students in Kindergarten-Grade 12.
The JumpStart! program offers new international students in Gr. 8 - 11 the opportunity to begin their transition to life at Aberdeen Hall and in the Kelowna community. During the 5- day immersion program, students are introduced to academic reading, writing, grammar, and oral presentation strategies. By becoming familiar with these concepts, students will feel more confident when beginning classes at the start of the school year.
The orientation program includes daily excursions such as touring the Kelowna downtown cultural district, exploring the Kelowna Farmer’s & Crafter’s Market, visiting the UBC Okanagan campus and picking seasonal fruit at a local orchard. Surrounded by beaches, parks, mountains, and lakes, Kelowna offers the ultimate outdoor experience. During the week, students will meet their teachers, be fitted for their school uniform, learn about Aberdeen Hall’s Family Boarding (homestay) program and learn to make a healthy and delicious lunch! This is a wonderful opportunity for participants to experience their ‘home away from home’ as they begin their journey with a warm Aberdeen Hall welcome.
