Have you shortlisted the American boarding schools you’re interested in, but you’re unsure how to proceed from there? From boarding school admission interviews to expectations of boarding life at international boarding schools in America, the process is easier when there’s an experienced person or school representative who you can get answers from.
To help families and students looking at US boarding schools, Foundation Global Education is holding The American Boarding School Fair 2022 this 29 October.
Meet representatives from top American boarding schools
The fair brings together more than 20 leading US boarding schools, including junior and senior boarding schools. Some of the schools include:
- Choate Rosemary Hall
- Concord Academy
- Deerfield Academy
- Miss Porter’s School
- St Paul’s School
- The Hotchkiss School
- The Taft School
This gives parents and students the chance to meet admissions officers, alumni and parents of these international boarding schools in America to learn more about available programmes at one time.
Learn about the admissions process for US boarding school
Does your child already have their eye on the US boarding school they’re interested in applying for? This is a good chance to set up admission interviews directly with the admissions team.
Or, if you’re unsure of what’s required for admissions, there will be admission experts present to walk you through the admission process. They’ll also share tips and strategies for admission interviews.
The American Boarding School Fair 2022 runs from 1.30pm to 4.30pm on 29 October at The Shangri-La Hotel.
There will be three presentations by three speakers:
- Top Tips for Boarding School Admission Interviews by Ms Angela Brown, Assistant Head for Admission and Strategic Initiatives, Dana Hall School
- Why All-Girls Boarding School? by Ms Shiang Sobieski, Senior Leadership Gift Officer, Global Resources, Miss Porter’s School
- Why American Junior Boarding Schools by Mr. Paul Abeln, Director Alumni and International Relations, Fay School
Following the talks will be a presentation by admission officers of the US boarding schools.
The event is free for registered participants – register at sg.foundationge.com
