Boarding Tour – April 2021

Boarding School Tour 
Sweden

(Stockholm, Gothenburg, Lund/Malmö)
April 11 – April 17, 2021 

 Why Sweden and Bluechip events?

  • Size: Our events/fairs are small. Maximum number of participating schools is 7. This gives a lot of attention to each participating school from visiting students and families.
  • Focus: Bluechip only works with the US institutions and is the most established and well known company for this in all of Scandinavia
  • Experience: Bluechip have been working with the USA and organizing fairs/events for the past 29 years
  • Student Quality: Students from Sweden are very mature and good students with a very high command of the English language

We have in the past years seen a growing interest in Swedish and other Scandinavian students wanting to go to a good boarding school in the US. 

We have seen an increase in this as families are looking for better academic alternatives for their childrens education as the Scandinavian school system has fallen behind in many ways the last decade. We also get the students that are looking for a specific interest alternative such as arts, music, sciences and athletics.

During this event we will focus on visiting top ranked High Schools as well as coordinate hotel Open House/Seminars. It will be an intense week with a lot of great high school visits.

The Bluechip open house in Gothenburg and Stockholm will be marketed primarily in daily press and weekly magazines that is read by high income parents. It will also be marketed to the elite high schools in Sweden and students there as well as through all Social Media channels.
