Paige Craig, Class of 2014, felt a connection to Balmoral Hall School long before she enrolled in fall 2011.
After hearing friends share stories about their university preparatory school’s close-knit community, she seized her opportunity to join them in grade 10.
“I wanted to receive the best education I possibly could for my final years of high school,” reflects Craig. “Balmoral Hall has given me opportunities to excel as I reach my goals. With the support of my peers, faculty, and staff, I have been able to succeed and grow.”
As her impressive academic and extracurricular record indicates, with an AP course load and a Blazers prep hockey schedule, Craig graduated as an honours student who led by example. She chose to pursue a Bachelor of Science at Queen’s University after receiving offers of admission from several prestigious universities in Canada. Next, she plans to study medicine.
Craig credits university guidance advisors at the independent girls’ school with preparing her to embrace her future. From ACT and SAT writing to resume and portfolio assistance, she approached each task in the process of applying to universities with confidence.
Personalized tuition planning enabled her empowering experience at Balmoral Hall School. From kindergarten to grade 12, students are eligible for up to 50 per cent tuition relief, and increased financial assistance is available in the form of donor-funded bursaries. Craig was one of these students.
“As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on endowment to enhance our bursary programs,” says Head of School Joanne Kamins. “We believe all girls deserve access to an education that inspires them to excel, to reach, and to lead. The Balmoral Hall family is incredibly caring. We are invested in others’ journeys.”
