Quick overview: Students complete the British Columbia Graduate Program curriculum, ready for further study at universities around the world. MLWS offers a high school program for grades 10-12. With a focus on academic achievement, MLWS students study English, Mandarin (Chinese), social sciences, which gives them an academic edge when going to college.

Maple Leaf World Schools apply an educational philosophy of the best of Western and Eastern educational practices, promoting an equal understanding of diversity in races and cultures, providing an optimal learning and teaching environment, and offering an internationally recognized curriculum that inspires the spirit and ideals of global citizenship.

University Advanced Start allows students to explore different areas of university education, to come to a natural understanding of what kind of university education might be the best choice for them. This advantage is especially important when you consider that currently about one in three students change their specialization during their studies at the university, which leads to a loss of time and money.

The Maple Leaf educational system provides students with an opportunity to better understand what motivates them and what to focus on in the future in the process of studying at the university.
