RSVP: Demystifying the US Boarding School Visit: Why, Where, When and How to Find a Fitting School


Are you thinking about visiting US boarding schools in the near future? Join our talk to know more about how to find a fitting school for your kids!

Experience tells us that students who enroll in US boarding schools that are a good “fit” for them are not only happy, but also they are able to excel and eventually gain admission to top US universities. For many families who are applying to US boarding schools, the application process can be overwhelming and complicated from start to finish. Each and every school has a unique culture and programs that are only ascertainable by setting foot on campus and experiencing them.

Based on visiting 30 plus boarding schools each application cycle with our consultation families, we are hoping to demystify one component of the application process - the school visit. Marybeth Hodson, Deputy Director of US Admission Counseling and Director of US Boarding School Counseling, will share insights that have helped ARCH students gain admission to their right fit US boarding schools. She will cover topics such as when is the best time to visit boarding school, tips for the student interviews and parent meetings.
