English schools in the USA and Canada
BEC is a certified TOEIC© Test Site.
We are a small English language school in the Canadian Rockies. Established 10 years ago, the Banff Education Centre helps students achieve their goals in an interesting and exciting way.
The Banff Education Centre offers diverse academic programs for students of all ages with a focus on mixing in-class and out-of-class activities. We focus on environmental issues and professions. We have a philosophy of combining practice in the community with nature and classroom instruction.
Our Activity Programs are also a little different. We believe that learning happens everywhere and our activities and outdoor classes are a part of the program you choose. All activities are teacher-supervised and English is used throughout. Check out our Activity Calendar to find out more.
We are very proud of our homestays. A full-time homestay coordinator finds the best match for each student in our small mountain town, which is minutes from nature and the outdoors. Community, the Rocky Mountains and our professional teachers and staff make us special.
