Choosing An American University

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Jan 24, 2018 6:03:00 AM

Some KES students look to the United States to continue their education either through Ivy League or specialized schools. With thousands of post-secondary institutions to choose from, there are many things students need to consider before applying to a US university.


Firstly, we encourage any KES student looking to apply to the US to think about what is most important to them in a university. We want to ensure students understand the full course offerings of an institution and ensure they are of high quality. Academic excellence is always top of mind at KES – even after a student graduates from our school!

King’s-Edgehill School Offers the SATs

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 16, 2017 12:24:00 PM

Each year King’s-Edgehill School offers students the chance to take their SATs – a necessary examination for any student thinking of applying to an American university.

Students who wish to write their SAT examinations during the 2017-18 academic year, will do so in October 2017 and therefore must register the first week in September. King’s-Edgehill School is a Supplementary Examination Centre for SAT’s, so our students do not need to travel Halifax to write the tests.

We encourage students who would like to write their SATs to adequately prepare for the test. Students can do this by practicing and taking a course, such as or Princeton Review and get a tutor, if required. Some of the courses are free, and some come with a cost, but many are offered online.

KES Helps Students Choose the Right University

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Sep 15, 2017 8:09:00 AM

Choosing a university can be a daunting task, but at King’s-Edgehill School we work with our students to ensure they have the right resources and tools to choose the right university.

When choosing a university, we want KES students to not only look at the academic programming in question, but also ask: What is the campus culture like? Will this university properly prepare me for the career I am striving for? Is the school the right size for me? What is the community like outside of the campus? What scholarship opportunities are available to me? Does this school have the athletic or arts programming I am looking for? Is the school located within a distance from home that I am comfortable with?
