Executive Director of Canadian Accredited Independent Schools to Address Economic Club

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 30, 2012) - Canada's accredited independent boarding schools are acknowledged to be among the best in the world, attracting thousands of students from more than 30 nations and contributing tens of millions of dollars in economic benefits to the Canadian economy.

Graduates attend some of Canada and the world's finest universities, with 98 percent gaining admittance to their school of choice. Studies show that boarding students emerge better prepared and more socially and emotionally confident than their day school and public school counterparts.

Yet a just-released survey shows that 95 percent of Canadians do not even consider boarding as an option, often due to persistent misconceptions and myths. Anne-Marie Kee, Executive Director of Canadian Accredited Independent Schools (CAIS) explains the surprising reality of boarding today and why Canadian parents and students should be seeking out the same advantages sought by so many overseas.
