New private school in Summerland offering one-time bursaries to students

A new private school coming to Summerland is offering one-time bursary programs for students.

UNISUS International School is offering a special one-time bursary program for Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 students for the 2018-2019 academic year.

“A group of visionary leaders approached us to make available the unique, world-class education offered at UNISUS to Okanagan students. It’s a one-time opportunity for the school’s first students,” said operations director Cindy Leung.

These leaders who have generously offered to give back to the community, share the UNISUS vision of an innovative program that fosters confident, creative and global-minded thinkers in an environment of collaboration and goodness, she said.

“We are excited to invite families to join us in creating a global community of young leaders to meet the challenges of tomorrow,” said Leung.
