Love the water? Boarding schools present a variety of opportunities for students who love sailing and who want to develop sailing skills.
One boarding student at a prominent sailing school raves, "I'm sure that all I've learned and experienced this year will continue to impact me for the rest of my life." While the same can be said about many other boarding schools, it is undeniable that under the sails, "Everyone is always looking out for each other."
The astonishingly unique sailing school, West Island College International - Class Afloat, offers year round sailing, while there are many boarding schools with sailing instruction as part of their phys ed curriculum. The school integrates traditional high school education with hands-on education in sailing and life at sea. There are few activities imaginable that offer more in the way of team building than sailing, where everyone works together in completely separate roles to make something so beautiful happen.
If you really want to explore your love of sailing and you live in an area that has a dearth of open water, there may be no better alternative than to attend a boarding school in a place like British Columbia or the Maritimes where there is ample room to set sail and most fully explore your love of the open water.
"This has been the experience of a life time for me, and I'm sure that all I've learned and experienced this year will continue to impact me for the rest of my life."
—Andrea, Class Afloat (the epitome of a sailing school!)
