British Columbia is a diverse society. People from all parts of the globe contribute to our province's social, cultural, and linguistic fabric. More importantly, the Kingdom of God is a multicultural faith community – there is strength and unity in our diversity. This diversity is mirrored in our schools' population, both in the contributions made and the unique needs that must be addressed.
Thank you for your interest in applying to Unity Christian School! Unity welcomes international students. We have an excellent program for international students looking for quality education and provide varied opportunities for those students to begin to master the English language. We highly value international students because of the positive impact that these students have on the educational experience of our Canadian students.
The purpose of ELL services is to assist students in becoming proficient in English, to develop intellectually, emotionally, physically, and spiritually, to meet our Grad Profile, and to achieve the expected learning outcomes and competencies of the provincial curriculum.
At Unity Christian School, a unique program has been devised, and teaching staff are trained and advised on how to best meet the needs of international students. Our International Coordinator communicates with the parents of the students and advocates on behalf of the students as the need arises. Our Coordinator also helps parents with the enrollment process and the BC medical services plan.
The presence of international students has blessed Unity Christian School, and past students report that they have been enriched by their experience in our school community.
The Unity Ambassador Program aims to foster community between our international and Canadian students. We want to show hospitality and the love of Christ to those who are new to our community. Every international student is buddied with an ambassador for the school year. The role of an ambassador is to reach out and connect with international students, to connect them to the Unity community, and to help them feel comfortable in their new environment. Throughout the year, international students and ambassadors will participate in fun activities inside and outside of school hours.
