Why Take this Program?

Our goal is simple: to improve your mind-body and emotional stamina, while experiencing an adventure of a lifetime as we travel through Quebec’s cities and national parks. In the backcountry you will gain skills camping, cycling, and canoeing. The hands-on application of new skills each day will ignite your energy level and supercharge your brain. We call it a ‘Mind and Body Boot Camp.’

What People Are Saying

I want to give a shout out to the MEI staff for the incredible experience Jesse had on the Adventure Down Under trip. We picked her up at the airport last night and she truly has never been happier. The trip and interaction with the teachers has given her a new perspective on herself and the beautiful world she lives in. We are so grateful to the teachers and the entire team at MEI for providing this experience.

Program Preparation
Foundation Work

September 8–12
We start our academics with a one-week intense Online Live session where you will meet, virtually, with your instructors and classmates daily. The Foundation Work for the English course consists of reading and discussing assigned novels and short stories, while the IDC Human Dimensions course will get your heart pumping and prepare you for the rigours of our backcountry excursions. We will review MEI’s COVID-19 protocol to ensure we are off to a safe start.

Nottawasaga Inn Resort

September 14–15
Our journey begins at a resort just north of Toronto. For students flying into Toronto, we will have staff members pick you up at the airport and shuttle you to this location. We will be following MEI’s COVID-19 protocol to minimize interaction with people outside our group. For all other students arriving by car, you will check in between 1 PM and 2 PM. After settling into our rooms, we’ll have our first class and review our schedule for the upcoming weeks. During our first family dinner, you will have time to mingle with our crew and begin the process of building a cohesive team.

The Eastern Townships

September 15–19
We will ease into the program with a morning workout and a hearty breakfast before travelling to the Eastern Townships by private coach. You’ll get to know the people in our ‘travel bubble’ during the ride, as we start to scope out the detailed game plan for our camping, kayaking, and hiking excursions. This location will be where teams are formed, and our crews will gain strength. Being mentored by some of the best guides and teachers in Canada is an extraordinary opportunity to step up your game and engage in life at a higher level.

First Quebec Backcountry Excursion

September 19–22
At the crack of dawn, we’ll depart for our first long paddle of our backcountry journey. We’ll pull into our first site at mid-day, and begin preparing our basecamp for the next three nights. Things get busy as we set up tents and campfires, and prep for a good ol’ fashioned cookout! When you’re out in the wild, it never stops, but planning and focusing your energies every day will become a fluid dance once you get into the rhythm. With a big appetite, we’ll enjoy our first gourmet camp-style meal and a relaxing afternoon before our first English podcast presentation under the stars.

Montreal

September 22–26
After our first backcountry journey, we’ll be ready to return to civilization. After travelling by private coach into downtown Montreal and settling into our apartments, we will quickly dust ourselves off and dress up for a night out at a fine restaurant in Old Montreal. You’ll need to be ready to regale us with your recollections and insights from your recent experience, so this is where your MEI morning journals come in handy. For the next four days, we’ll focus on reading, listening and performing the best literature, poetry, and song that the French culture has to offer. As we stroll down the streets of rue St-Paul and rue Notre-Dame you’ll have time to explore the Museum of Fine Art or cycle along the Vieux-Port. Afternoons can be spent exploring the hipster part of town—the Mile End. Looking for inspiration to write your first creative portfolio piece? Settle into a small cafe, or grab a legendary Schwartz’s Deli sandwich and St-Viateur Bagel and head out for a picnic in a park. Montreal has something for everyone, and you’ll have the independence to choose what to explore and how you want to spend your time.

Laurentian Mountains

September 26–29
Our next expedition will take us into the Laurentian Mountains. Each time we go out, we’ll expand our outdoor skills, so be prepared to paddle a little harder and hike a little further. Testing your mettle is what MEI is all about, and with a good crew and strong commitment, you’ll see how beautiful a rugged challenge can be. You’ll also gain knowledge of the indigenous peoples that lived in these lands for centuries, and lead discussions on a wide range of topics. Leadership and team building is a key part of this program, so students are often responsible for planning evening activities, campfires, and games.

Quebec City

September 29–October 4
This town is like no other in Canada; you may like Toronto or Montreal, but you’ll love Quebec City, that offers a little bit of Europe! In the early sixteen hundreds,this coastal village began as a trading post, but quickly became the heart and soul of New France. Here you will experience the fusion of old-world culture and modern innovation that highlights all the joie de vie of French Canada. The Old Town is surrounded by a defensive wall that dates back 400 years, and this is the area where we spend most of our time. There is no better way to get to know a city than to get lost in it, so students design scavenger hunts in the Upper and Lower towns to test each other’s ability to navigate and explore. 95% of the population are francophones so it’s a good time to learn a little French and find your way around. To keep in shape while indulging in some of the finest food on the planet, we enjoy cycling excursions and hikes along the St. Lawrence River.

Second Quebec Backcountry + Montreal

October 4–9
Fall will be in full glory as we head out on our last outdoor odyssey. Building on the skills and confidence from our previous excursions, we enjoy the paddle and the calm routine of being in the still of nature. Our DSLR cameras and drones provide us with tools to capture insights and images from our trek. Sleep comes easy as the cool nights, warm campfires, and the expectations of another day of grand exploration nurtures the soul.

Upon returning to Montreal, our last days focus on developing independent student projects. This is an exciting time to have in-depth discussions on what you’ve experienced and learned, as your teachers provide one-on-one guidance on your major assignments. On our final night, our crew will perform podcasts showcasing their creative pieces while enjoying an outstanding meal at one the many fine restaurants in the Old Port District.

Return home October 9

Online Live

October 13–16 and 19–23
After our time together, students have eight days to complete your final cumulative projects and prepare for your online presentations and discussions with your teacher. At this time teachers will be holding online discussions and personal guidance to ensure you craft the best presentations possible.

Final Evaluation Week

October 26–30
During this week your teachers will schedule a time for one-one-one presentations and discussions using Zoom. You will also complete an online, interactive examination to demonstrate your level of understanding and skill level for each course. MEI students and teachers have found this style of evaluation not only enjoyable, but the most authentic and thorough method to demonstrate what you have learned and experienced during the term.

Amazing!

My experience with MEI was amazing! The help I received was excellent. Travelling abroad has changed my perspective on life and the world around me, and I recommend it for anyone! It was the best decision I have ever made.

Life-Changing is an Understatement

To say that MEI was life-changing is an understatement. My trek was unbelievable, and I did so many incredible things that I never imagined I would have the opportunity to do. I learned how to advocate for myself, get out of my comfort zone, and make lifelong friends, all while being pushed academically. MEI really pushed me to become a better writer and I now feel prepared for university-level writing assignments. The quality of education at MEI is unparalleled, and I am forever thankful that I got to experience Europe with so many wonderful peers and teachers.

One of the Best Experiences of My Life

Being able to travel to the other side of the world was one of the best experiences of my life. I was able to explore a whole new part of the world as well as earn credits for my grade 12 year. My teachers and the people around me opened my eyes to so many new things about myself that will stick with me forever. I came back from my trip with a new appreciation for learning and the world. I will forever be grateful to MEI for this amazing experience.

Seeing Where Things Actually Happened

We were talking about visual learning in class today and this summer, I learned that visual learning isn’t just using building blocks to understand multiplication in math…it is SEEING the Theatre of Dionysus while you learn about it. Visual learning is WALKING THROUGH the Colosseum while you talk about gladiators. I miss seeing where things actually happened.

Outstanding Mentors

The teachers continually went above and beyond. They were not only exceptional teachers, but they were outstanding mentors, advocates, role models and friends. They have made such a positive impact on my daughter’s life.

Best Summer Ever

I had an amazing experience on the Adventure Down Under program. The teachers helped everyone throughout the entire trip and always kept us excited for what is going to be happening. This trip was the best thing I have ever done in my life, and I am so happy to have made such amazing friends. MEI taught me how to connect with others and live every day to the fullest. Thank you MEI for making this the best summer ever!

Eric Perez, Student
Adventure Down Under, 2019

Learned More

I unfortunately couldn’t go out on the kingdoms and empires trip due to covid-19 but instead I did online school with MEI. The online classes through Zoom were very interactive and educational. I got super close with my fellow students in my small class and was always able to reach my teacher for any questions I had. We learned through virtual tours, lectures and group activities. I enjoyed the learning style and can easily say I learned more through online MEI courses than any high school course I’ve taken in school.

Opportunity to Demonstrate Improvement

I liked how the academics were more contemporary. I had 2 other kids attend the MEI summer program and I really value the quantity of writing that is expected, the quick feedback from teachers, and the opportunity to demonstrate improvement. Learning how to write takes practice and MEI provides ample opportunity to practice writing skills.

Opened My Eyes

Travelling to the other side of the world was one of the best experiences of my life. I explored a whole new part of the world awhile earning grade 12 credits. My teachers and those around me opened my eyes to so many new things about myself that will stick with me forever. I returned with a new appreciation for learning and the world. I will forever be grateful to MEI for this amazing experience!

Friendships that will Last a Lifetime

This summer, I had the experience of a lifetime and visited six major business capitals within 35 days. Not only did I learn about the important aspects of business, such as investments and real estate ,but also about myself. I created friendships that will last a lifetime and created unforgettable memories with them. One of my favourite things about MEI is how we used the locations as an interactive workplace so the world truly was my classroom. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants a challenge and to see the world from a different perspective.

Sama Russel, Student
International Business, 2019

Different Perspectives

I really enjoyed the coursework. It was very relevant and interesting. I loved the interactive presentations in the World Issues course; the open discussions opened my eyes to the world around me and gave me different perspectives.

Julia Turliuk, Student
Expedition to Tanzania, 2019

Changed My Understanding of the World

MEI was something I’ll never forget; it changed the way I learn and changed my understanding of the world and the curriculum. Learning on-site is a truly valuable thing that I was lucky to have experienced. In a short 35 days, I learned more than I would in an entire semester. I made friends that will last a lifetime and gained incredible knowledge and skills I’ll always have with me.

Maya Chan, Student
Trek Through Europe, 2019

I just want to say a HUGE thank you!

This past summer, I went on the English Through the Ages program through Europe. This experience was better than I ever could have imagined. The friends I made taught me so much and the teachers we had were so helpful and supportive. The places we went, the people I met, and the adventures we had will be things that stay with me for the rest of my life. I love going to school, but this summer I learned that even more than that, I love being able to learn in the real world. I found it fascinating how every place we went, there were new things to discover, whether it be part of the curriculum or something about the local environment or culture. The time I spent with MEI truly was an experience of a lifetime.

Thank you so much for starting this program and sharing it with students, whom like me, want to travel, explore, and learn as much as possible. I will always smile back on this summer with such fond memories, and I will tell all of my friends about this wonderful opportunity.

Thank you so much, MEI! I just want to say a HUGE thank you!

Lasting Friendships

My time abroad with MEI academy allowed me to make lasting friendships with other like-minded students as well as help me visualize my learning more than a classroom setting could ever do.

The Leap is Something I will Never Regreat

I had the experience of a lifetime. I loved every single minute of my trip. Taking the leap to take grade twelve courses while abroad isn’t an easy decision, yet, the leap is something that I will never regret taking. My experience with MEI was life-changing. I never thought I could learn so much about the world and myself in thirty-five days. The teachers were incredible; they were always there to support us whichever way they could. Every day there was a new experience, whether it was watching Bastille Day fireworks in Paris, or dancing in the English Gardens in Munich or even writing an essay in the peaceful Swiss Alps. In the end, I have grown so much from this trip, and made friendships that were deeper than I could have ever imagined.

Changed My Life

This summer I travelled with the international business program. We went to New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong, and Beijing. I learnt so much about English and Business from doing things such as visiting the Globe Theatre and the New York Stock Exchange As someone who already appreciates school this trip really fuelled my love and appreciation for education. The main takeaway however, was getting the opportunity to see the world and learn how to live in it. In addition to this, I have learnt so much about myself. This experience filled with hard work, good friends, and being apart of the MEI family has changed my life. Mei truly cares about their students’ educations and works very hard to give them the best that there is.

Nick Dingle, Student

It Felt Like I Was with Family

I was really nervous to leave my home for such a long time, but my anxiety quickly dissipated; within hours, it felt like I was with family. The teachers were always there for me no matter the time or reason. The activities we participated in together daily helped enrich and enhance our biology lessons, which were always engaging. Never would I have thought that the beach would make such an amazing classroom!

Bridget Patterson, Student
Backpackers: Central America, 2019

Some of the Best Teachers I Have Ever Had

MEI was the most amazing way I could have ever achieved two high school credits. I honestly can not remember the last time I was really captivated in the classroom. I had very positive and kind teachers who were always willing to give extra help and feedback. They were some of the best teachers I’ve ever had and made learning so much more fun because they taught with such enthusiasm.

Alexandra Ignjatic , Student
Ancient World Odyssey, 2019

My Skills Improved Immensely

In the winter/spring of 2020, I was supposed to travel with MEI Academy and explore Europe, but instead, because of COVID-19, we did our semester online. Nonetheless, MEI managed to make this experience worthwhile. They did an amazing job at mirroring the feeling that comes with travelling and learning simultaneously, This is easily the most enriching course I’ve ever taken; my writing skills have improved immensely, and my knowledge of history is now unmatched by my family and friends. The projects were always original, the lectures were fun and engaging, and I find myself graduating with wonderful new friends, both in fellow students and in teachers!

Caylie Castonguay, Student
MEI Online Live Term 3 and 4, 2020

Amazing to See How I Improved

My entire life I have been stuck in a classroom where 40 students scramble to copy notes from a whiteboard. Travelling this summer with MEI gave me the opportunity to experience hands on learning, while immersed in many unique cultures. The low student to teacher ratio insured that I was always getting direct feedback on all my work. It was amazing to see how I improved my writing skills far more in this one summer than the last three years of high school.

Lachlan Mahan, Student
International Business, 2019

Empowering Atmosphere

This past summer I had the opportunity to take one of Mei’s life-changing excursions. From beginning to end, I felt myself grow as a student and a person. The atmosphere MEI creates is empowering. Being part of a group encompassing some of the smartest, most driven peers I’ve ever met, compelled me to raise my own performance. Passionate teachers motivated me to push myself. The demands of the incredibly fast-paced Business program, and my ability to meet them, has given me confidence that I can take on my upcoming challenges and succeed!

Maggie Smart, Student
International Business, 2019

An Experience that I Will Forever Hold On To

I thought that going to a foreign country for the first time with 35 strangers would be absolutely terrifying, but I was extremely wrong. Considering your teachers as friends, meeting people and feeling as if you have known them your whole life when in reality, it’s been 35 days is what MEI is about. Being immersed in a history rich place like Europe with teachers that are truly passionate about what they do, makes you want to learn. Not only do you learn about the world wars, Napoleon and valuable writing skills, you also learn unteachable life skills. I could never list all of the memories I have from this trip, but between seeing your teacher perform on the stage of the Globe theatre in London (our first stop), and listening to heartfelt poems we all wrote about each-other at our last day in Prague, I am sure you can see how amazing the trip was. Overall, my MEI trip was an experience that I will forever hold on to.

Abby Bartoshewski , Student
Trek Through Europe, 2019

So Grateful

MEI was a life changing experience that I am so grateful for. The teachers were incredible and willing to help with anything, academic or personal. Mei gave me the opportunity to travel to new countries with an amazing group of students that I know I will have as friends forever.

Kayla Solway, Student
English in Western Europe, 2019

More Confident and Independant

MEI changed my life. It helped me open up, learn to adapt to a fast and constantly changing environment, and gave me an opportunity to learn in the world’s most beautiful places. Before the trip, I was anxious about the program and questioned my ability to do it. However, even after just the first two days, I started to feel more confident and independent and was able to enjoy the experience fully. Throughout the program, the teachers were always reaching out and trying to make the trip as great of an experience as possible. They were kind and helpful and overall made Trek Through Europe one of the greatest times of my life.

Rose Knetsch, Student
Trek Through Europe, 2019

Beautiful Education

I felt as though the education was almost as beautiful and interesting as the cities we were in. I never struggled to focus on, nor to understand the lessons. Each individual assignment felt like a piece of scaffolding that eventually allowed us to build and complete our exam and final assignment to the best of our ability.

Emma Hood, Student
English Through the Ages, 2019

Epic

Every morning I woke up with a zest for life because I knew each day would bring something incredible. This trip has completely redefined the way I feel about education. MEI is school in the most epic way possible.

Chloe Jackson, Student
Big Year, 2018 / 2019

Extremely Fulfilling

When our adventure to Europe was cancelled due to the pandemic, I, and presumably my peers, were crushed. I was initially skeptical of the paradox of online abroad school, but attempted to maintain my usual optimism as we explored this unpredicted learning route. As soon as I met my teachers, my positivity and curiosity skyrocketed. I can’t imagine what I would have retained had we departed on our trip because the online curriculum was extremely fulfilling. My teachers were engaging and energetic, and their enthusiasm inevitably rubbed off on each student. That a teacher who had expected to bond through face to face connections was able to seamlessly cultivate these bonds while we resided states and countries apart is astounding. It may not have been the journey that I signed up for, but I learned more about myself and my peers than I imagined was possible.

Sydney Sullivan, Student

The Best Preparation

Our son chose to complete not just one but two summer school programs with MEI International Academy because the experience was truly so amazing that it warranted going back again for a second course. As a parent, I think giving him the opportunity to attend MEI Academy has been one of the best things I have done for his personal growth and development. I am so impressed with how much more independent, resilient and self-aware he has become as a result of his MEI experiences. The MEI teachers are phenomenal, and they bring a contagious energy and enthusiasm to what they are doing so that students can’t help but be excited and engaged in their learning. The academic bar and expectations are high. The close connections between the students and teachers that are established by travelling together allowed my son to have a great dialogue with them and be comfortable in putting himself out there to take more risks. The teachers provided continuous support, gave meaningful feedback, mentored and challenged him in a way so that he could reflect, improve and produce his best work. With so much activity packed into a day he had no choice but to get better at time management, working efficiently and prioritizing tasks. Ian discovered his passion for business on this last trip and it has become clear that this is what he wants to pursue at university. Travelling and studying with peers has been the best preparation both academically and personally for his postsecondary studies. His time with MEI allowed him to gain the confidence and belief that he can successfully achieve any of his goals. I can’t thank Joe and his staff enough for leading Ian on another unforgettable adventure that will undoubtedly have a positive impact on all of his future endeavours.

You Have to Go Beyond

I experienced so much in just three months. I travelled to six countries, met new people and learned about the world. It was absolutely surreal to have a World Issues lesson at the Forbidden City in Beijing and to ride in a Tuk Tuk to get to class. School is so much more than the four walls of a classroom; you have to go beyond, see the world and experience your learning firsthand. That is what education is. I am so grateful for these moments. I know I have grown so much from this experience and I will carry this knowledge of the world with me for the rest of my life.

Sasha Hasick, Student
Fall Semester Program, 2018

An Experience Like No Other

MEI Academy is an experience like no other, living with a group of students as you travel and learn about the world is incomparable to anything else. This trip has the power to change you for the better. I’ve gained so many experiences and I can’t wait to share them with my friends and family. When I left home, I was a tourist, looking to see the wonders that awaited us. I returned a traveler, and became one with the places we’ve travelled while trying to learn from them to better ourselves.

Maxwell Ryan, Student
Big Year, 2018 / 2019

Exceeded Expectations

My MEI summer on Trek Through Europe completely exceeded the expectations I had before the trip. Not only did I make amazing new friends that I’m still extremely close with, but I got to experience a whole new way of learning that would have never been available in a normal classroom setting. The teachers were so supportive, and they were amazing role models. Their love for teaching enabled me to become engaged in the curriculum, and apply the topics we were learning to the different places we travelled. For me, the best part about this trip was that not only was it academically focused, but the experiences, responsibilities, and independence earned while travelling abroad allowed me to gain life skills that I will take with me forever. This was hands down the best experience of my life, and a summer I will never forget!

Ellie Thomas, Student
Trek Through Europe, 2019

Excellent Staff

The staff on this trip were excellent. I certainly never felt, at all, that I was buying this mark. They challenged our son, provided excellent feedback, and the one time we contacted them with a concern, they were quick and supportive in answering us, and in speaking with Liam. Liam certainly raved about them. In particular, he enjoyed the one-on-one FPT discussion with Sabrina. He felt that during that time she was engaged and interested in what he had to say.

Amy Kovich, Parent
English Through the Ages, 2018

Nothing Short of Exceptional

My experience with MEI was nothing short of exceptional. The hotels we stayed at offered comfort and culture, connecting us to the cities we stayed in and the culture of the country, not that we spent much time sitting still! This summer, I formed meaningful friendships that I will carry with me well into adulthood. The excursions we went on were fantastic: zip lining through the Costa Rican jungle, white water rafting, cave diving and seeing Mayan ruins and snorkelling in the Belizean barrier reef to name a few were led by qualified guides who not only lead us on the activities but helped us to appreciate the experience.

As students we were given time to explore the cities ourselves and bring back souvenirs for our friends and family to remember the trip by, not that any of us would need a keychain to remember our life-changing, 5 weeks together as the friendships and experiences were more than enough to remember our time together.

Grace Hill, Student
Backpackers: Central America, 2019

Always Wiling to Go the Extra Step

I really enjoyed how the assignments and projects all had a different format and allowed us to try new things. I was also super impressed with all the detailed feedback I received and found it to be very helpful with improving my English skills. The teachers were very supportive and approachable at any time and were always willing to go the extra step.

Rebecca Clark, Student
English Through the Ages, 2018

A Second Family

I feel so lucky to have spent the most incredible summer of my life, surrounded by like-minded people who became a second family to me within a few short weeks. Aside from the academics, and a deep understanding of the French language and culture that no textbook ever could have given me, I made so many lasting friendships and memories. I returned home a more independent and overall changed individual.

Halle Pelletier, Student
France and Switzerland, 2019

Surpassed All of My Expectations

The concept of learning in a different country outside a classroom surpassed all of my expectations. I learned much more than what I would have learned in a regular classroom setting. The people I met were amazing, and the teachers were fantastic. Definitely a great experience that I’ll never forget!

Christian Ouellet, Student
English Through the Ages, 2019

Truly Broadened My Worldview

On MEI, the world truly is your classroom! From exploring the intricate streets of Europe’s most historic cities to climbing the beautiful mountains in the Alps, MEI truly broadened my worldview and gave me countless treasured memories. This past summer I met so many incredible people who I’d have likely never had the chance to know! As well, the teachers surprised me with their level of dedication to teaching and their ability to connect with their students! They challenged us to really take an interest in the world and our place in it. I would highly recommend MEI, because the decision to study with MEI was easily the best choice I have ever made!
