Edward Kidd, Headmaster Ridley College, St. Catherine’s, Ontario

“Ridley’s culture is enhanced by a global perspective that few Canadian schools can match, thanks to our diverse community of learners from over 60 countries around the globe. Our Chinese students are an integral part of the cultural fabric of Ridley, and we value the deep relationships that we have and continue to cultivate with our international students and their families…. We encourage all students to participate in a broad spectrum of co-curricular activities to prepare themselves for future leadership and impact, and we are extremely proud of our graduates who have gone on to study at the finest universities in the world.”

Ryan Seeley, Vice Principal, Metropolitan Preparatory Academy, North York, Ontario

“We take care of our students and educate them to the best of our ability so that their future is bright. They will remember their experience here because of our attention to detail and the hard work we put in. We have a smaller staff and a smaller administration than others, so nothing falls through the cracks. Our students can rest assured that if they choose Metro Prep, they won’t be sorry.”

Ginie Wong, Head of School Fieldstone King's College School, Toronto, Ontario

“We care about our Chinese students and what they learn. Our teachers are nurturing and supportive. We are not a big school. We are like a close-knit family and know each other very well. We have established a strong connection with a lot of organizations and schools in China. We are not just a vision on paper, we are able to deliver our vision into reality.”

“We can’t deny that China is a very important market given the number of Chinese students we have. Forty percent of our student body is from China. We work together in promoting and advocating international education to Chinese parents and students. We make sure our students get a world-class education, as well as getting what they need.”

Patrick Dang, President and CEO SELC Career College, Vancouver, British Columbia


“Chinese students and families can expect our undivided attention. That is our objective. We will embrace them with open arms. We realize their significance and are excited about the balance they will bring to our overall population. Their language proficiency will improve. We believe they will find SELC College very helpful in addressing their concerns and providing them extra care.”
