Fredericton Christian Academy welcomes international students! We love international students as they have a positive impact on our school community. The number of international students is limited in each class so that the students will be encouraged to interact with others in the English language. With our Integrated Content ESL Instruction Model, students learn both English and academic content. Our integrated classrooms allow students to earn credit toward graduation in required core subject areas.
At first, it is really hard, but if you work hard it comes easier. If you have problem understanding, ask the teachers – they are really helpful. Play with Canadian friends, it really helps to learn English. Come to FCA; they will welcome you!FCA International Student
The teachers and students have helped a lot. In the beginning I did not even know what [my] homework was and students would tell me what to do. Teachers helped me when I could not understand what was being taught. They took the time, outside of class, to teach me.FCA International Student
At FCA there are friendly classmates, helpful teachers, special events like the Christmas concert.FCA International Student

FCA's high school ESL program prepares students for academic success in secondary school and university. The program covers all subject areas while improving students' English reading, writing and speaking skills. International students will gain a solid grasp of general and idiomatic English, as well as academic vocabulary and study skills. With our Integrated Content ESL Instruction Model, students learn both English and academic content. Our integrated classrooms allow students to earn credit toward graduation in required core subject areas.
$850 per month (Sept. 2019-June 2020)
Homestay is an option that is available to our international students. Through the homestay program international students have the opportunity to learn, and experience Canadian culture, as they learn the English language. Homestay students improve their English language speaking and comprehension skills faster than their counter parts as they are immersed in the English language as they eat meals and interact with their Canadian homestay family on a daily basis.
A full tuition/homestay fee refund, less an administration fee of CAD $500.00, will be granted for two reasons ONLY:
To obtain a tuition/homestay refund, the student must either provide a copy of the “Letter of Rejection” from Citizenship and Immigration Canada and a written refund request from the student's parents including name(s), home address, signature(s), and full name of the student withdrawing. In the case of a family death, the student must provide proof of the family member’s passing as well as a written refund request from the student's parents with a signature including name, address, and full name of the student withdrawing.
There will be no refund of the tuition/homestay fee in the following circumstances:
Tuition/homestay fees are to be paid in full as soon as the student has received the FCA “Letter of Acceptance” for visa processing. In some cases, FCA will allow for families to pay by semester. In these isolated situations and when the “Letter of Acceptance” visa document stipulates that the length of study is one full year (two semesters), the same refund policy applies. That is, the student is required to pay for both semesters and remain a student at FCA for the course of study indicated in the “Letter of Acceptance”. Again, the only two exceptions are noted above.
Failure to meet financial obligations will result in possible legal action, holding of the student’s FCA transcript and notification of this breach to Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
