TABS and VETEC Announce Joint Admissions Event


ASHEVILLE NC, USA – March 17 2013


The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS) in partnership with The Vietnam Education Center (VETEC) has announced that it will be hosting a Boarding School Admissions Fair at Asiana Saigon Intercontinental Hotel on Thursday, November 7 from 2:00pm to 5:00pm.


Families with children ages 10 to 17, and interested in learning about university preparatory schools abroad, are invited to attend this informal FREE event. Pre-registration will open soon at (Registration will also be available on-site November 7.)


Schools from Canada, USA and around the globe will be available to answer questions, offer catalogs and application information, and to generally explore the boarding school option with families. Many types of schools will be represented such as single gender and coed, military, rural and urban, junior schools, athletics and pre-professional arts, IB, a variety of religious affiliations and those specializing in learning differences.

College prep boarding schools provide unequaled academics, supported by small classes of 10 to 12 students on average and students are allowed a kind of controlled independence. Living on campus with peers promotes lifetime friendships, and provides teachable moments for mentors to reinforce the lessons of both school and life. By the time graduates arrive at the world’s finest universities or their first professional job, they’re fully prepared for the challenges and responsibilities of adult life.

This event is just one leg of TABS annual 9-city Admissions Tour throughout Asia. To learn more, contact Annie Lundahl at or Mark Matsumoto at
