Private donors fund new school
Oct 1, 2013 / 5:54 am
The ground has been broken for construction of a new $8.6-million school in the Central Okanagan, funded primarily by local donors.
Aberdeen Hall Preparatory School is entering its tenth year in operation, and is located on 19 acres, adjacent to UBC Okanagan. Their master vision is to have an Early Learning Centre, a Junior Hall and a Senior Hall. This latest round of construction will complete the process.
“We’re focused on creating a bridge to university, both UBC and top universities across the country and abroad”, says Christopher Grieve, Head of School.
The non-profit, co-educational and non-denominational independent university preparatory school offers classes from Preschool and Kindergarten to Grade 12. It has grown by an average of over 22 per cent in each of the past seven years, now boasting over 400 students.
The newest portion of the school is scheduled to open in the fall of 2014.
