International Students

Vista Virtual School provides instruction of Alberta grade 1-12 curriculum to international students and children of Alberta families living abroad. These options have associated fees.

There are generally three situations:

1. Children of Alberta families living abroad

  • VVS provides Alberta families, temporarily living abroad, with continued access to education through the Alberta Programs of Study.
  • Since there are numerous conditions and circumstances, please contact us regarding programs for students whose families are living abroad.

2. Children of families without Canadian citizenship

  • A family of non-Canadian citizens would like their children to receive their education through the Alberta Programs of Study.
  • Services are limited to instruction and the related interactions between the teachers and their students. Additional school services (such as counselling) are not available to this group of international students.
  • Families can register through the VVS application form. Please contact us for support in registering.

3. Students studying at Alberta Accredited International Schools (AAIS)

  • AAIS can supplement their programming with opportunities offered through VVS.
  • Students can apply directly through the VVS application form. Please contact us for support in registering.
