Secondary School Fair at Eastern Greenwich Civic Center Will Feature 90 Top Schools

secondary school fairGreenwich Education Group will host its seventh annual Secondary School Fair on Tuesday, May 17, from 5:30pm to 7:30 pm, at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center in Old Greenwich.

The fair is free, open to the public, and serves to acquaint families with an array of excellent independent day and boarding schools throughout the United States and Canada. More than 90 top schools will be on hand to meet and answer the questions of prospective students and their families.

The process for admissions to private day and boarding schools is highly competitive as more and more students bring a wealth of academic achievements, experiences and interests to the table. Attending the Secondary School Fair will enable students and parents the opportunity to speak with admission representatives to get a taste of the different schools.

“I loved being able to compare so many schools under one roof,” one parent said. “The admissions officers were very approachable and eager to speak with prospective families.”

More than 500 prospective students and parents from New York City as well as Fairfield, Westchester, Putnam, and New Haven counties attended last year’s event to speak with admissions directors and learn about the schools.

Victoria Newman and Muffy Fox, Co-Directors of Day and Boarding School Advisory Services at Greenwich Education Group, note that choosing the right independent or boarding school is a decision that can have a lifelong impact. The Boarding School Fair offers families an efficient way to compare school offerings.

Along with Greenwich Education Group, the Secondary School School Fair is co-sponsored by the Department of Parks and Recreation/Town of Greenwich, Moffly Media, and Upper Crust Bagel.

All proceeds go to the Town of Greenwich Parks and Recreation Foundation Scholarship Fund, which provide low-income families access to summer camp and sports programs.
