Boarding School for All Kinds of Learners

Difficult choices, exciting options: 
an interactive virtual discussion with school representatives 

November 7, 2020;  9:00-11:00 AM (HKST)

Boarding school can be a life-changing option; however, the decision can be a tough one, particularly if your child has mainstream learning differences like ADHD or Dyslexia. Our Boarding School Event is designed to help you better navigate those choices. This will include:

  • A parent panel sharing personal experiences with boarding school choices and outcomes.
  • Small group discussions with school  representatives to learn about their unique programs, learning support and summer options.
  • Opportunity for 1:1 follow up with schools of your choosing. 

​Please join us to explore the breadth of exciting learning opportunities available for students who learn differently and to gain a better sense of the right fit between your child and the boarding school setting.

​Discussion themes:

  • How do I evaluate the trade-off between sending my child away from home and the potential benefit of a better learning environment?  
  • Would my child be better off in a mainstream school with learning support or a school specifically for SpLD/ADHD?
  • How much individual attention should my child receive?
  • What is the right age for sending my child to boarding school...junior or senior boarding?
  • What are the benefits of a co-educational or single-sex school?

Participating Schools:

  • Brewster Academy
  • Cushing Academy
  • Dunn School 
  • Ethel Walker School
  • Gow School
  • Greenwood School
  • Landmark East School
