International Student Program

Every year, students from all around the world come to study and live at MCI. Mennonite Collegiate Institute has been home to students from over 30 different countries! We offer international students a safe, caring environment in which they can learn English and experience Canadian culture. 

Set Up for Success

MCI’s track record is outstanding in having International students gain acceptance at many top university programs. We offer rigorous courses and a rich co-curricular experience. International students who study with us experience not only academic success but also a deep sense of community and support.

English Language Development

MCI offers a unique English language immersion experience. Enhance your skills in writing and speaking by living in the dormitory and studying with Canadian students in the classroom. 

University Preparation

  • Your Manitoba accredited MCI high school diploma will open the door to further education, and give you access to universities in North America and around the world.
  • MCI partners with many Canadian colleges and universities. These connections give MCI students access to exclusive services, including school tours and assistance with admission and scholarship applications. Regardless of your educational goals, MCI will help prepare you for life after high school.  

Cultural Experience

Our school programming allows students to travel off-campus many times throughout the year and experience the wonders of Canada’s diverse culture and landscapes.

International students will also have the opportunity to share their diverse cultural experience with other students at school, through our International/Cultural Days. 

Boarding Program

Our Dormitory offers a safe, supportive, and fun place to live where international students can build relationships with each other and with Canadian students as they study, work, and play together. Additionally, parents of international students are encouraged to be engaged in their student’s learning by way of email and phone connection with the school.

Small Class Sizes

Because we are a small community, international students are able to get 1-1 help both in and out of the classroom to enhance their learning experience. International Students are involved in student life in real and exciting ways beyond academics, including music, sports, student leadership, and social activities.

Host Families

International students are paired with a host family in the area who help the student to learn about Canadian culture and welcome the student into their home and into their family on holidays, closed dorm weekends, and as needed throughout the school year.

Engaging Staff

We’ve got a team of willing staff ready to make your transition from home to MCI as smooth as possible. We’re here to help with visa application, bank setup, airport pick-ups, and answer any questions you might have. Please contact us if you have any questions!

Do I have to be Mennonite to attend MCI?
