Benefits of the Boarding School Experience: Free Webinars with Admission Directors

Greenwich Education Group’s Day and Boarding School Advisory Services division will present two virtual webinars about the benefits of a boarding school experience featuring admission representatives on Wednesday, August 5, and Thursday, August 13, both at 4:30 pm via Zoom.

The focus will be on boarding schools as a viable option for students, not just during the pandemic but also into the future. In some cases, it is not too late for students to begin a search for admission this fall.

The seminars will be very substantive in presenting why boarding schools are an excellent option during unpredictable and challenging times based on the benefits they have always provided. They’ll demonstrate how these schools build community and allow life to continue to be as normal as possible in a safe, productive environment.

The Admission Directors will cover a variety of topics, including the advantages of an on-campus experience, the effectiveness of synchronous online learning in small classes, the benefits of residential life for this critical age group, relationship and community building, enhanced extracurricular opportunities, and more. 

Over the past 15 years, Greenwich Education Group’s Educational Consulting team has helped to place more than 2,500 students in day and boarding schools throughout the US and Canada. 

Victoria Newman, Founder and President of Greenwich Education Group, said, “We are pleased to present these virtual opportunities to parents who wish to know more about how to give their children the best opportunities to grow, learn, develop, flourish, and thrive during uncertain times.” 

Day and Boarding School Educational Consultant Peggy Hersam said, “Considering a boarding school for your student has never been more relevant. We have expertise in finding the right fit for an individual student. If chosen correctly, it can be a life-changing experience!”

The first webinar of August 5 will feature Avon Old Farms School, Blair Academy, Choate Rosemary Hall, Tabor Academy, and Westminster School.

The second webinar on August 13 will include Berkshire School, Lawrenceville School, Millbrook School, Suffield Academy, Taft School, and Trinity-Pawling School. Each webinar will last one hour and include a Q & A opportunity.

Participation is free, but pre-registration is required:
