A new chapter in education is being opened thanks to a new weekly boarding program at Aberdeen Hall Preparatory School in Kelowna.

Beginning in September 2015, students from communities in the Kamloops, Merritt, Penticton and Vernon regions can now study and live with a local family from Monday to Friday, returning to their homes and communities on the weekend.

“Parents who want to give their children an academically challenging environment, but are 100 to 200 kilometres away from a world class university preparatory school, now have an option,” said Head of School Christopher Grieve.

“Accessing exceptional academic, athletic and art programming in a world-class facility is now attainable and provides a tremendous opportunity for students wishing to prepare for university, and life beyond.”

Adjacent to the UBCO campus, Aberdeen Hall’s 40-acre campus offers state-of-the-art facilities including the Great Hall with sky labs, a robotics lab, digital recording studio, science labs and exceptional athletic and arts facilities.
