The ASK Leadership team recognizes the challenge of being an international student in any school with a large local culture base, and at the same time values the perspective and English language which international students bring. In order to encourage and increase international students, we would like to offer a 5% discount for the 2017-18 academic year, to any current international student who “brings a new buddy” this year. There are no age limits for this initiative. Parents may complete a special form obtained from the Finance Office and submit it no later than September 1, 2017. If a family is receiving a bursary through their employment, they may opt to donate their 5% towards a special scholarship fund designated to increase minority enrollment or to use the 5% towards participation in the ASA program for their children.
