Institutional Profile

Study Manitoba was formed by a consortium of 5 rural school divisions in 2008.  Beautiful Plains, Fort La Bosse, Rolling River, Southwest Horizon and Turtle Mountain School Divisions have partnered together to offer seats in 18 high schools across Southwestern Manitoba.

Students are placed with homestay families where they are immersed in Canadian culture and English language.  Classrooms offer low student to teacher ratios for individualized attention and an opportunity to form close connections with classmates.  The schools offer an extensive co-curricular program providing students the opportunity to participate individually or as a team member.  Some of the school-based activities include music bands, drama productions, sports and adventure activities. Schools offer additional opportunities through programs such as Hockey Skills Academies, Ducks Unlimited Wetland Management Partnerships and a Wind and Solar energy partnership.

The goal of our program is to create an atmosphere which encourages independence, good judgment and personal excellence, with respect and dignity for all people.

Program Details

Our schools provide instruction based on the Manitoba Curriculum.  In addition to core, compulsory courses, schools offer a wide array of elective courses including, but not limited to: Band, Art, Drama, Choir, Wood Tech and Power Mechanics.
