International Student Program


At The Cambridge School of Weston, international students are included in all aspects of school life, so they have a full immersion experience which identifies and values their unique contributions.

To support the adjustment to a new school, international students take part in an orientation program prior to the start of classes. This orientation allows students to settle into their new community, get to know their dorm parents, and bond with dorm mates and student dorm leaders. The Dean of Student Life, the Director of Residential Life, the school’s counselors, and peer mentors organize and lead the orientation weekend, ensuring that new students become familiar with the resources available to them at CSW.

In addition to the orientation program, international students participate in a year-long series of workshops provided by the academic office. These workshops address the classroom environment and course expectations at CSW. Students learn how to collaborate with their peers, make use of academic resources, work in partnership with their teachers, advocate for themselves, take ownership of their learning, seek support when necessary, and manage course selection.

International students are mainstreamed into classes from day one to ensure their full inclusion in the curriculum and community. Our programs provide many opportunities in and out of the classroom for students to share and celebrate their heritage, traditions, language, and culture while at the same time being immersed in the diverse and inclusive culture that is The Cambridge School of Weston.
