Calgary is a large vibrant city filled with options and possibilities for children and families. When you’re thinking about private schools, however, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by these options, as wonderful as they may be. What type of private school would suit your family? Where will your kids thrive? What about special needs, boarding schools, IB streams, and finances? The 2020 Our Kids Private School Expo is your pathway to answers, effective research, and a future filled with opportunities.
This year’s school expo will be held virtually, beginning on October 3, 2020. The Our Kids Private School Admissions Pathway is a virtual private school expo offering online events for exploring, evaluating, and understanding the full expanse of private schools. Finding the best school for your child and family is incredibly important; the school your child attends has a profound impact on his or her success. Whether you are interested in IB (International Baccalaureate) Waldorf, Montessori, special needs, local day schools, or boarding schools in Canada, the US, or abroad, the Our Kids Private School Expo is the one place you can have all of your questions answered.
School is always a significant topic of conversation for families, and this has been even more true with the 2020 pandemic. Learning to navigate the school system and figuring out which option is best for your child can be a challenge. Every parent wants their child to have a positive educational experience and when your child is in the right school they will be engaged with their learning and you will see their confidence rise in every area.
Whether you know that private school is absolutely the right fit for your family, or if you are merely considering private schooling as one of many options, you don’t want to miss the Private School Expo. Speak with educational experts and other parents and learn about affording the tuition (there are financial assistance packages available). Is there a better way to model the importance of learning to your children than by taking the time to investigate all possible education options?
