Aberdeen Hall Preparatory School in Kelowna, BC offers students from the surrounding areas of the Okanagan Valley the opportunity to attend one of British Columbia’s top independent schools.

Who is it for?

We understand that geographical restrictions have limited the educational choices for many families throughout the interior of BC. The Weekly Boarding Program is designed for high school aged students who live within 100-200KM of our Kelowna campus, so that it’s feasible to return home on weekends. Weekly Boarding opens up a whole new option for residents of Penticton, Vernon, Kamloops, Merritt, and other areas where a daily commute is difficult.


Students live with carefully selected Host Families; all of whom are interviewed in their home by our Family Boarding Coordinator. Host Families must pass the school’s screening process which includes a criminal record check.

Students are provided with a private, fully furnished bedroom with bedding, a desk, chair and lamp. Bathroom facilities may be private or shared. The Host Family provides nutritious meals and snacks. Students have access to laundry facilities and the common living areas of the house. This is the student’s ‘home away from home’.

What is the Cost of Weekly Boarding?

The weekly boarding fee is $800 in addition to tuition

The student will cover all personal/individual costs outside of the room and board fees. For example:

  • Transportation home on weekends and school breaks
  • School supplies
  • Extra-curricular lessons and activities
  • Toiletries and medication
  • Personal entertainment

What about School Holidays

Students in the Weekly Family Boarding Program return home for all long weekends and school holidays.
