Hong Kong
Lunch Seminar: Latest Admission Trends of Top Boarding Schools and Essential Techniques of Mastering Applications
29 Aug 2017

Hong Kong’s education system is undeniably competitive compared to its surrounding regions, however, many schools only put effort into ensuring their students’ strong academic performance, often overlooking the importance of the students’ emotional and physical well being. While students’ intellectual enquiry is well taken care of, their creativity is usually forgone. In view of this, many parents look for pathways that best provide a holistic education for their children. The latest trend is to send their children to overseas boarding schools as they inspire a love for learning while providing comprehensive university counseling. They also offer the boarding experience that cannot be replicated here in Hong Kong.

In this seminar, Daniel Szeto will discuss why boarding schools have become increasingly popular among Hong Kong parents. He will also explain why they are chosen over top local and international schools in the pathway towards higher education abroad, and explore the facilities, curricula, and matriculation of these schools. In addition, he will explain why boarding schools in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Switzerland boast a long tradition of education excellence, and why they are among the top ranking educational establishments in the world. Last but not least, Daniel will briefly discuss the techniques of mastering the applications to the most sought-after boarding schools.
