To Apply & Course Requests (Scroll Down)

Once the online application package arrives at the School Board Office, it is reviewed by the International Manager and team. Notification will be given as soon as a decision has been made.  The earlier application packages are received the better. However, we will accept applications (space permitting) up until 2 weeks before school start up. Applications for all schools are open now for Fall 2017.  There are a limited number of spaces for Whistler Secondary School, and the cut-off for applications to Whistler Secondary is January 15.
