Breakfast & Learn Workshop: US Boarding Schools and Universities
- What is the best “entry point” for a US education?
8:00-9:30am. Every parent wants a great education for their children. For many parents in Asia, that includes considering sending your children to the US for part of their education. Thinking about whether boarding school and/or college in the US is a good fit for your child and your family, and understanding the process required to apply and gain acceptance, is extremely important. Once you have decided to look to the US, there is also the question of when you should start thinking about the process and taking action, and how to support your children and ensure the process is positive instead of stressful. Furthermore, what is the most beneficial time (high school or college) to send your child to the US. This seminar is designed to answer these questions, and provide useful knowledge about the process, in order to clear up misconceptions and help you understand the facts.
Carole Bird, Director of Apply Ivy, will share information to understand the process and discuss how to determine the best time for you and your family to pursue a US education.
