A Thorough Reference for International Families Considering North American Private Schools

An International Student’s Guide to Applying to Private SchoolIn a recent post, “Shrinking Public Schools Turn to International Boarding Programs as a Lifeline,” I proposed:

“If I were an international family being wooed by a public school system that recently added a boarding program, I’d start my research by asking some questions.”

An “ah, ha” moment struck me after we published that piece.

Our recently published free E-book, “An International Student’s Guide to Applying to Private School,” covers exactly these topics/questions in more detail and with a more detailed eye toward execution.

Author and colleague, Christine Chapman takes international families through the thinking; the “nuts and bolts” of applying to private school in North America and Europe.

She covers some of the questions and issues (as well as how to address them) that I raised in “Shrinking Public Schools Turn to International Boarding Programs as a Lifeline.”

If you’re an international family considering a traditional boarding school, private day school or a home stay-public school experience, “An International Student’s Guide to Applying to Private School,” Ms Chapman offers sound advice and templates for good planning.
