International students are welcome to apply to register for Elementary (Grades 1-6), Junior (Grades 7-9), and Senior High (Grades 10-12) levels. Banbury Crossroads School is one of the most established private schools in Alberta, having  been established in 1979. Our campus is in the neighbourhood of Currie, in breathtaking Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and we are one hour away from the Rocky Mountains. We offer one of the lowest student-to-teacher ratios averaging 8:1 in any given class, and we deliver curricular material in a primarily tutorial-based style. Students are immersed in an English-language setting, and receive constant opportunities for social interaction. In addition to our excellent academic courses, we offer real-world experiences, such as field trips, cooking classes, art, and music classes. We follow and enhance the Alberta Curriculum. We have certified ESL teachers on staff, providing daily ESL support instruction in addition to the regular curricular material. Our registrations are for full-year programs, starting in September and going until June, or for single-semesters, starting either in September or February. Students must have some English-language competency prior to being registered.

BANBURY's English Immersion

When students apply to register, they are interviewed via teleconferencing to determine overall suitability. Once the student is enrolled, they are given the opportunity for assessment, including Student-Directed Topics of Interest Assessment. Once the teaching staff understand their level of English competency, and their personal interests and goals, then each student is given an individual learning plan. Once students are in High School, and once they achieve the required standards according to Alberta Education, they will receive credits for their courses, including any ESL courses. This unique, Self-Directed Learning program offered at Banbury Crossroads allows students to explore a variety of topics and activities through experiential learning. International students learn how to interact comfortably with native English speakers, both inside, and outside, of school. Enhancing the student’s basic competency in English occurs through reading, writing, listening, and speaking practice, with emphasis on experiential, and project-based learning. ESL teachers are available for providing English language skills, and for support through academic courses, through one-on-one instruction. Students will learn both everyday English proficiency, as well as academic English proficiency, from having studied here, immersed in English.
