Our Program

BSS Boarding provides students with extensive academic and social support. A dedicated Boarding staff member works closely with the school’s Learning Resource Centre to ensure girls are receiving support necessary for success and evening study sessions are a regular part of the Boarding program. A variety of fun annual events bring students together as a community and celebrate cultures from around the world. Service learning opportunities teach ethical citizenship and the value of giving back. It’s a complete and unique program that puts every boarder’s well-being at the centre of all we do.
