Learn English while your child attends a local school and studies academic subjects in English alongside Canadian and international students. Eliminate potential separation anxiety and the worry of sending your child to live with strangers by joining your child in Canada. Breathe the clean air and feel welcomed by the local inhabitants.

Play in the Autumn leaves, make a snowman in Winter, look for the blossoming flowers in Spring and go to the beach in Summer – Canada has all four seasons!

Live the dream of being in Canada while making amazing memories to last a lifetime!


Atlantic Canada Language Academy is located in beautiful Lunenburg, Nova Scotia – a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Canada’s most beautiful places. Established in 1753, Lunenburg is full of history and rich in culture.

Lunenburg is a safe community with no crime and is the ideal location for young students who are away from home for the first time. ACLA students often enjoy exploring the coastal community and spending time on the scenic waterfront which is home to the famous racing schooner, the Bluenose!

Lunenburg’s harbour-side streets are lined with unique shops and restaurants that blend with the well-preserved and colourfully painted historic homes, much of it like a living museum from the 18th century. It is truly a magical place to spend your school year  – we look forward to meeting you!
