British Columbia Boarding Schools

Is this the best place on earth to board?

British Columbia Tourism makes the bold proclamation that BC is "the best place on earth" and its boarding schools might well echo this in claiming to be among "the best schools in the world." Boarding school students in the province find themselves situated in some of the most beautiful scenery on the planet, while acquiring the finest learning. Schools typically feature the very latest technology and sporting facilities, having produced world leaders in athletics, politics and culture.

Graduate from a BC boarding school and you'll join some illustrious company.
