Private school expos

It's a big world. There's a lot to learn.

The Private School Expos are far and away the highlight of our year, a welcome opportunity to step away from the office and engage with the people—educators, parents, students— who make private schooling so compelling. We think we live in a connected world, and perhaps we do. Still, the expos are a reminder of the importance of bringing people together, face to face, around some shared ideas.

Explore your options

As fun as the expos are, there is of course a serious side. Education is important, second only to family within the life of a child. The right school, just as the wrong one, can make a lasting impact. We often think of private school as an option for students who need to be challenged, and certainly there are many who are driven by a desire for enrichment or university preparation.

That said, each year there are also parents who attend because their child, for whatever reason, isn’t thriving within their current school environment. They want to help, just as all parents do, though it’s not always clear how. Added to that, it can be overwhelming when there are hundreds of options to choose from. Through the expos, we’re proud to play a role in easing any anxieties, and in making some introductions between people who really need to meet each other.

Know the issues

Each expo includes information sessions and panel discussions on topics relevant to private education. At the sessions, experts offer advice and field questions about choosing a school, admissions, and financing.

Even if you’re 99% sure where you will enrol your child, an expo is an opportunity to confirm the choice you’ve made. Whether you’re looking to send your teen on a learning experience of a lifetime, to help your child with her ABCs, or anything in between, you’re not just finding a school, you’re building a relationship. Each school has a unique culture, just as each student has a unique personality, and it’s the intersection between them that will dictate the best school for a child. At the end of the day, nothing can replace the value of stepping up, putting out your hand, and saying, “hello.”
