What? Live at school?
BSS Boarding welcomes Grade 7 to 12 students from Canada and around the world to an extraordinary learning and living experience. Along with a first-class academic program, our diverse group of students enjoy an endless choice of co-curricular activities. In a safe, comfortable, supportive and nurturing environment, our Boarding girls create powerful friendships with peers from around the world and generate learning experiences that last a lifetime.
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.
