Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) is located south of Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and is a day-school only with no boarding or home-stay programs. International students are most successful in their academic pursuits at STS when they move to the Calgary-area under the care and support of their immediate family.

Tuition costs at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School are the same for all students, except that international students residing in Canada on a student visa may not be eligible for the education subsidy for Alberta residents. This means tuition for international students reflects the total cost of an STS education, and the difference of this subsidy will be added to the total cost of tuition and fees.

For international student information, please call our Enrollment Office at 403-938-8326 or send an email: admissions@sts.ab.ca.
