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 harbor-side streets are lined with unique shops and restaurants that blend with the well-preserved and colorfully painted historic homes, much of it like a living museum from the 18th century. It is truly a magical place to spend your summer – we look forward to meeting you!
The team at Atlantic Canada Language Academy assists with all aspects of your family’s adventure abroad. Our settlement plan furthermore includes assistance with all aspects from moving in, connecting utilities, transportation to enrolling children in public school, locating shops, pharmacies, and other services.
The student Services officer will also keep you informed of community events and activities to ensure that you are fully immersed in the community.
