The London District School Board (LDCSB) has been welcoming international students since 2015. Mother Teresa International was established to enhance the level of support available to international students studying in London.
Key features of Mother Teresa International include:
- partnerships with King's University College, Brescia University College and Fanshawe College to introduce students to the options available after high school and ensure motivated international students are prepared for post-secondary studies and success
- orientation and peer-mentoring programs designed to introduce and integrate international students with their Canadian peers
- superior English language programs custom-designed to help motivated international students acquire academic-level English
- extracurricular activities that provide additional opportunities for international students to socialize with Canadian students to build cross-cultural understanding and further language development
