Cultural Diversity- Currently, students from 17
countries have been accepted into our New Brunswick International Student
Programme. These students enrich the culture of the schools and communities in
which they live.
Economic benefits-Research indicates that every
full time student contributes 25,000 dollars to the community. This year
Anglophone East hosted 193 full time students, resulting in a 4.8 million
dollar benefit to our economy.
Relationship Building- A key to a successful
international experience is establishing strong bonds with family and peers. As
a result of these positive relationships, more and more students are
considering NB as a place to live.

students in grades 6-12, for varying lengths of time. Financial compensation is
