Boarding School Seminar

If you have children that are interested in attending US boarding schools, this is an event not to miss. Carole Bird of Apply Ivy and Peter Kaufman of ArborBridge will be on hand to answer all of your questions about US boarding schools generally, and details about the application process specifically.

Apply Ivy will cover when to start thinking about the process and planning, the benefits of a boarding school education, the importance of finding a school that is a good fit for your child, insights about different qualities of boarding schools, and how to make the process thoughtful rather than stressful when you do decide to apply.

ArborBridge will be conducting a full overview of the SSAT exam, including an in-depth look at the skills and concepts tested on each section, an analysis of how gender and age affect percentile rankings, and a discussion of what goals to set and how much preparation students need to achieve them.

Join us to get all of your questions answered, including:

  • A breakdown of the four sections on the SSAT
  • An explanation of the gender and age based percentile system
  • What scores students should aim for and how to set realistic goals
  • How to properly prepare for the exam and how much time to budget
  • Why may I want to consider a boarding school in the US for my child?
  • What factors should we consider in choosing the right schools to apply to?
  • When is the right time for my child to begin boarding school?
  • What qualities and experiences are boarding schools looking for when admitting students?
  • When should my child start working on the applications to ensure everything gets completed in time?
  • What should my child do now to prepare for the admissions process?
  • What can my child do to improve his/her chances of admittance?
