All parents desire the best education for their children, and want them to have happy and rewarding educational experiences. That’s why boarding schools are such a popular choice. A place at a top international boarding school can help guarantee a bright academic future, as well as broaden a young person’s horizons and develop a sense of independence in a fun and exciting way.

Those interested in the boarding school experience need look no further than Linden Educational Services’ Summer and Boarding School Expo for information. The event, which is facilitated by Ace Academy, will be held at the Excelsior Hotel in Causeway Bay from 6pm to 9.30pm on November 17. A group of admission counsellors representing 27 prestigious international boarding schools from the US, Canada, the UK, Switzerland, and India, will be available at the Expo to speak with potential students and their families.

Places at these premier boarding schools are available for students across a range of ages, and the scope of the academic programmes and activities they offer is broad. Most of the schools run lively summer programmes which offer sports, arts, science, and more. All the schools are accredited by their national governments, or, in the case of those located in the US, regionally accredited.

Linden believes a boarding school education is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give to a child. The schools Linden works with help their students attain the best degrees and qualifications, and provide a foundation for life, success, and long-lasting personal friendships. Linden and its partner Ace Academy placed over 40 students from Hong Kong in top international boarding schools in 2015.

Many of the world’s kings and queens, presidents and prime ministers, as well as its successful business leaders, have attended boarding school. Boarding school students receive many advantages. The sense of personal responsibility they learn at boarding school prepares them for university life, and its academic rigour, in a unique way. Boarding school students usually attend the world’s finest universities.

The residential campus environment ensures that students are immersed in an educational world where learning is central to all activities. It’s a unique setting that promotes common experiences, camaraderie, friendship, trust, and honesty, between children and adults. Boarding schools traditionally have highly qualified, highly motivated teachers who see their work as a calling; it’s not just a job for them.

Students at boarding schools gain a sense of independence during term time that is over and above what they would achieve if they were living at home. A boarding school education is the ideal preparation for the challenges and responsibilities of adult life.

Students at boarding schools also benefit from small class sizes and heightened interaction with their teachers. Students are conditioned for future success because they are encouraged to achieve their full potential. Studies show that boarding school graduates excel at university, and quickly move up the ladder in their professional careers.
