Location

Delta is located 30 minutes from Vancouver, 20 minutes from the airport, and touches the USA border. Surrounded by water on three sides, Delta has beautiful beaches and natural environments. Delta has three communities (Ladner, Tsawwassen and North Delta). Delta has numerous golf courses and many kayaking and other boating opportunities on the river and bays surrounding the city. Some international students have obtained their pilot licenses at the local Boundary Bay Airport and Training facility. Others enjoy horseback riding and mountain biking through our parks. Just minutes from the USA border, international students often join their host families for a quick trip to the US for shopping and camping or exploring. Delta is an extremely safe residential community with one of the lowest crime rates in the whole Vancouver area. Delta residents enjoy a high quality of life with well kept modern homes and incomes 30% higher than the Canadian average. The residents are mostly college and university educated. Most enjoy an active lifestyle and are open minded and globally conscious.

Accommodation

Delta school district staff run the homestay program personally for individualized care (we don't out-source to private companies). Each of our three homestay coordinators live in the local area and are minutes away from the homes if needed. We have 24 hour contact and maintain a close relationship with the students and their host families. We have many teachers, principals, and government officials among our homestay families. All homes have been inspected and the family members have had criminal record checks. Students can change homes quickly with our free moving service if anything is unsatisfactory. Students have private rooms, internet access, and all the modern amenities. We encourage homestays to help their students join local community centres and clubs and to become actively involved in all the Canadian family experiences such as camping, boating, ski trips, etc. Most importantly, we stress that every student becomes a valued family member and we strive to assist in developing life-long friendships and relationships.

Activities

Delta School District runs a monthly sightseeing activity program for international students. In addition, Delta has elite sports academies for talented athletes in the areas of hockey, soccer, golf, baseball, and softball. The academies run during school time and high school graduation credits are granted for these programs (which are run by national and internationally acclaimed coaches). Delta also has academies in Dance and Film/Acting. All schools host the usual sports teams for all students including aquatics, badminton, basketball, baseball, cheer squad, cross-country, curling, field hockey, football, golf, gymnastics, lacrosse, rugby, soccer, soft ball, skiing, snowboarding, swimming, tennis, track & field, triathlon, volleyball, and wrestling.
