Do you want to explore the option of sending your kids to a private school, but don’t know where to start? You’re wise to consider the issue because the school your child attends will greatly affect his or her future opportunities! But families are busy and the Calgary Private School Expo is absolutely the best place to begin.
This one-day event is the ideal way to learn more about private schools and decide what kind of education will best suit your child. You’ll be able to speak directly with school representatives from leading private and independent schools (Preschool through Grade 12), along with current students and their parents. You’ll also meet with educational experts and get answers to questions about fees, admission procedures, and anything else you need to know about private schools. In just one afternoon, you’ll gain the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your child’s education.
The Expo features three critically informative presentations: “Overview of Calgary Schools,” “Choosing & Applying to Schools,” and “Financial Aid & Tax Breaks.”
Over the course of the afternoon, you will:
- learn about all the various options in the private and independent school world, including day or boarding facilities and single-sex or co-ed schools that focus on arts, sports, education, special needs, or an all-around academic experience
- address your concerns around the cost of a private education, including lots of helpful information about scholarships, bursaries, and tax credits
