This year’s Expos include information seminars on  “How to Choose a School” and “Financial Advice: How to Pay for Private School” where families will be able to ask questions at the Q&A sessions and meet with school representatives and current students to get an inside view of each school.

  • “I was surprised to meet with the Heads of the schools. They were so friendly and approachable; really knowledgeable too.” — Parent of prospective student
