Located in one of the most multicultural cities in the world, we aim to give immigrant youth the opportunity to succeed, the support they need to achieve their goals, and the academic rigor needed for them to do well in their post-secondary lives.

Adjusting to a new country, culture, and environment, our students have the opportunity to reach their ambitions while expanding their horizons by learning about the lives and histories of their classmates. Our students graduate with the academic skills, social consciousness, and compassion that sets them apart from other high school graduates.
