Airport Transportation Fee

The nearest international airport is located in the City of Calgary (YYC) which is about a three-hour drive from Palliser’s farthest high school. The division fee for transfer from Calgary to the homestay is $175. There is no transfer fee for international students placed in Palliser’s Alternative Faith-Based Calgary programs.

Revalidation/Legalization of School Marks

Palliser Regional Schools offers a revalidation of marks service for students who require it. Mexico, Colombia and Brazil are a few of the countries that require revalidation in order for the student’s home education system to accept the Canadian course marks as valid. The fee for this service is $150. Requests for revalidation must be made to the Associate Superintendent (Education Services)

When working with Alison on Palliser’s DiscoverU Student Leadership Conference I was exposed to everything from public speaking, formal presentations, brainstorming sessions, to conference calls and meetings while planning the logistics of the conference. Not only did Alison encourage students to be leaders in various elements of the project but she found ways of inspiring leadership through her charisma and positive attitude.
