The Deep Creek Middle School supports some of our students as they apply for enrollment and scholarships at U.S boarding schools. Bronthaye Rolle (grade 9) writes about their recent trip: [slideshow]

We had awesome tours at all of the schools we visited. We had a great time during our trip. We visited Wilbraham and Monson Academy (MA), Lawrence Academy (MA), The Putney School (VT), Hebron Academy (ME), Berkshire School (MA), Vermont Academy (VT), The Darrow School (NY), Kents Hill (ME), and New Yarmouth Academy (ME). All of these schools were beautiful and filled with talented students. We came to love them and hope to be enrolled in one of them next year. Personally, I had a really fantastic trip. I know that by working harder, achieving higher SSAT scores and contining to be an honor roll student, I will meet the standard that is required and will be accepted in one next year. That is my goal.

Others agree. “The Boarding School Trip was a blast! We visited a variety of schools. I have a lot of favorites. In addition we all bonded and had a great time visiting new places and meeting new people,” said Breanna Leary. “This experience was awesome. Visiting the schools and learning about a different culture was good exposure for me and I’m excited to experience more of it,” said Keniesha Pinder. “The opportunity to experience all of what those schools had to offer was great. I’m looking forward to exploring and learning about one of them,” said Shawnea Neeily.

As you can see, we are all excited about studying in the U.S. We all hope to be enrolled in one of these great schools next year. Special thanks to all the following school supporters for hosting us on our trip:
