International Students

Linden Christian School offers international students the opportunity to participate in a Canadian, Christian educational experience, supported by a strong EAL program. New Canadians that still require language support in their schooling also benefit from this program. Our EAL staff attend classes with students where necessary, assist with research and editing assignments, and provide general support in adjusting to Canadian schooling. Please contact us if you would like to learn more about our program and the application process.

Acceptance of international and/or non-resident students is limited, and is based on the school’s ability to maintain an effective EAL program.

Acceptance into Linden Christian School requires that students, together with their parents or guardians, participate in an interview with a school administrator. Questions are asked to determine the educational, spiritual and social needs of your child. The interview is also a great opportunity for you to ask any further questions you might have about the school. All applicants to LCS receive an interview. Our Administration Office will be in contact with you to make interview arrangements. Interviews can be conducted using Skype, Zoom or Google Meet.

Following the interview, Administration will review and decide upon acceptance and placement of the student. In instances where Linden is not able to place your child, you will receive an email stating we cannot proceed further with the application. Applications are transferable for one year.

Prior to the commencement of studies at Linden Christian, email [email protected] or telephone the Admissions Office at 204-989-6739 to make arrangements to complete the enrolment process. Enrolment will not be complete until the full tuition is submitted with a copy of the Study Permit and Medical Insurance coverage.  Linden Christian School provides an option for medical insurance through Guard Me.  More information is available at www.guard.me. Upon request, we will provide the LCS access code.

A meeting time will be arranged to meet with the English as an Additional Language (EAL) Department to ensure that proper supports and course selections are in place for the student.
