If you're into rowing, then you might strongly consider getting into boarding school. Canada's boarding schools have produced numerous Olympic champion rowers, including gold medalists Malcolm Howard (men's eights in Beijing, 2008). Other Brentwood grads, Dave Calder and Scott Frandsen, grabbed silver in the 2000 meter men's pairs at Beijing.
There are numerous other Canadian boarding schools with a strong presence in the world of rowing. Shawnigan Lake School is a frequent training ground for Canada's national rowing team. In fact, Shawnigan, Upper Canada College, Havergal College and Ridley College all have strong presence in the rowing pond with numerous Henley Rowing Championship medals to their credit. Shawnigan's women have also won numerous medals and championships at the Canadian Secondary School Rowing Association's (CSSRA) annual nationals.
The oldest inter-high school rowing competition in the United States occurred between two boarding schools, Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire, and Phillips Academy Andover in Andover, Massachusetts.
From that start, boarding schools have risen to prominence in the world of competitive rowing, turning out many of the world's most decorated rowers.
