Why study abroad in high school?

Attending high school abroad is a transformational experience. Many students do not go abroad until university, so you'll be getting an educational head start. Our private international boarding schools offer a full high school education in English for native and non-native English speakers. Graduates continue on to English-speaking universities, including some very prestigious institutions like Harvard and Cambridge. These are full-time, academically challenging programmes, with the on-site academic and personal support necessary to make a smooth transition from living at home to attending high school abroad.
