International boarding school representatives will visit the city in November as part of an education fair for prospective students. The Association of Boarding Schools, consisting of private boarding schools mainly in the US and Canada, will conduct the fair on November 14, where representatives from various schools will interact with students.
“A boarding school education is valuable for the independence it fosters, the facilities it offers, the international diversity in the student body and the opportunity to learn from peers,” said Steve Banks, director of operations of the Association, who was visiting the city. “It is ideal for students who wish to go to college in the US, and makes the transition to university life almost seamless."
Around 3 per cent of the student body of the association's 293 member schools is Indian. The school fees range from $30,000 to 50,000. The academic year begins in August.
