"I adapted very quickly to life as a Freshman in Canada quickly because I attended the UVA School, where they prepared me for the realities of University and studying abroad. UVA is a great school, where the teachers are very patient with the students, and care about not only their academic success, but their overall growth. Miss Murphy helped us practice speaking weekly and helped us with any problems with our homework to ensure that we not only got the grades we needed, but fully understood the content of what we were studying. I am so grateful to have such a kind and caring teacher who believed in me. That is what you get at UVA School, not just teachers, but teachers who care about your future. In short, my experience studying at UVA School laid a good foundation for both my academic and personal future, which makes my freshman year not so confusing and my confidence higher."
