Waco’s Vanguard College Preparatory School to Welcome International Students
Program to begin in the fall of 2013
WACO, TX February 12, 2012 — Vanguard College Preparatory School today announced that based on its high academic standards and a proven track record of preparing young men and women for academic success, they have been selected by the Cambridge Institute to participate in an International student hosting program.
“We are excited to be a part of this emerging educational opportunity. The addition of these qualified students will enhance us all,” said Bill Borg, Head of School at Vanguard.
Beginning in the fall of 2013, Vanguard will host ten to twelve, 8th, 9th and 10th grade students from the People’s Republic of China and from the Republic of Korea.
“Being selected as a host institution for this program is no small feat. A school must demonstrate exceptional educational standards and have achieved a high rate of college placement among its graduates,” said Borg. “Vanguard’s academics are rigorous but our student have been up to the task of taking ownership of their education. Our parents, students and faculty should feel honored with this accomplishment.”
