Demand and interest for overseas educations have been on the rise, as evidenced by the increasing number of Hong Kong students attending boarding schools, summer schools, and one-year exchange programs.
The Summer and Boarding School Expo will be held on November 11 from 12 noon to 5 p.m. at the Excelsior Hotel in Causeway Bay. The Expo will comprise of representatives from the SSAT Organization and an elite group of 18 boarding schools from across the USA, Switzerland, Albania, Thailand and India.
The boarding schools bring together a vast array of locations, facilities, programs, together with a mixture of educational philosophies and cultures.
