The St. Jude's Academy Residence Experience
St. Jude’s Academy is proud to welcome international students to share their unique perspectives and cultures with our SJA community and within student life, so that we may all appreciate and benefit from diverse world views.
Our international students have both the SJA Dorm and alternative home stay options available. Immediately upon entering the SJA Dorm, students feel welcomed – from the entrance of this historic home nestled in the heart of old Mississauga, students truly experience a Canadian neighbourhood.
Students are transported to and from the St. Jude’s Academy campus, where our top-ranking IB Diploma Programme is delivered. This setting, the programs, the counselling and university focus give our grads an advantage above non-SJA students, both in terms of acceptance and success at universities of their choice, and our comprehensive education experience also prepares them for global industries once they enter the workforce.
Our boarding graduates have strong ties to SJA, and we often hear many of them say the same thing: “It put us ahead of the game.” Located in Mississauga, part of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), this environment is ideal for students seeking a multicultural experience with vast off-campus opportunities. Its reputation as a safe and cosmopolitan city make it an ideal place to live and study within the multicultural mosaic of Canada.
