Allow me to introduce myself, I am Mellissa from FleishmanHillard and we have an exciting event that you might be interested in.
As parents we always strive to give our child the best possible by providing them with a well-rounded, holistic education that will prepare them for future success and nurture them into purposeful adults.
One of the most important decisions is deciding which school to enrol your child in. Make the right decision and you could put them on a path toward lifelong learning, a prestigious college education and a successful career. This is where boarding schools can provide the right learning environment, ensuring rewarding advantages for students. The academic rigor and the learning of responsibilities and independence set boarding school students on the right path – professionally, socially and culturally.
Boarding schools offer the priceless gift of preparing their students for future success, with almost 100 percent of boarding school graduates moving on to university. Research shows that students who graduate from boarding schools achieve faster career advancement than private day and public school students. By mid-career, 44% of former boarding school students achieve positions in top management compared to 33% of private day and 27% of public school graduates.
Boarding schools place as much importance on character development and growth as they do on academic success, fostering a wide array of desirable traits in a supportive and motivating environment that encourages self-discipline and independent thought. More than three quarters of boarding school students say they have been given leadership opportunities, much higher than private and public school students, helping students develop better life skills and become more independent and well-rounded individuals.
As students learn to live and study independently, boarding school students develop the necessary skill sets for success in college. The balance of mentor guidance and personal responsibility help prepare students for university life with 87 percent of boarding school graduates report being very well prepared academically and non-academically.
