The Association of Boarding Schools, an organisation that represents several leading college preparatory boarding schools in the USA, Canada and around the globe, is beginning its Africa tour across Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya.
The respected Association is visiting these Africa countries in order to lead a domestic and international effort to promote much-needed awareness and understanding of some great North American boarding schools, and to expand the applicant pool for its member institutions.
By expanding its international student recruitment efforts to the African market, TABS facilitators are hopeful that they will bring together African families and representatives from its member institutions, all under one roof.
Specifically, during the African tour parents and students will have a unique and exclusive opportunity to receive individualized attention by meeting and talking face to face with admissions representatives from TAB member schools.
The tour kicks off at the Marriot hotel in Ghana, on Tuesday 15th October, with an agent event from 4:30 – 5:30 pm and a family fair from 6 – 8 pm.
The event is free to attend with many of the schools providing scholarships to brilliant students.
The schools visiting Ghana are: Albert College, Bard Academy at Simon’s Rock, Culver Academies, Fork Union Military Academy, King’s Academy, Menual School, St. Johnsbury Academy, The Hockaday School, The Hun School of Princeton, UWC Changshu China and the Wyoming Seminary.
