Congratulations to our friends at Kents Hill School. It sounds like they've found an ideal head of school to succeed Rist Bonnefond.

#4 caught my eye - I had no idea that US universities are increasingly classifying American students as international if they're studying in Canada. Is this a relatively new consideration?

I imagine it must be a compelling reason for US students to strongly think about Canadian boarding schools.

Thanks for sharing the post. Great info.

Celina, I'm sorry to see that you didn't make the finals. I thought you had it; the judges loved your work in the semis.

Either way, congrats on an amazing run. I need to get to KC to try your food.

Cheers,
Peter

What an interesting spin on the Gap Year, Cory. Is this a long standing program? I can't say that I've come across a similar program on a boarding school campus. Nicely done.

Thanks for the heads up on the headline. We corrected the typo - appreciate the feedback.

I actually spent the afternoon on campus- what a fantastic spot. I was extremely impressed by the school and its offerings.

No, I highly doubt it. From what I understand, aside from football (& baseball?), the schools compete in other sports, but given their differences in size (student population), it's probably not too likely that they'll meet on the football field.

This is a fun piece of history that the folks on the WA Mash unearthed. Always interesting to dig a bit to uncover the roots of old school rivalries.

Thanks for asking!
