Originally from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Greg joined the BCS team in August 2013. He studied Economics, American Government, and Sociology at Bowdoin College in Maine. After college he played professional hockey for two years and then joined the Holderness School in New Hampshire as Associate Director of Admissions. During his time there, he wore many hats in addition to his admissions work: he was a dorm parent, student advisor, and coach for several boys and girls teams.
Greg lives just up the street from campus with his wife, Kate, and two young children. “As a boarding school graduate, I am a firm believer in the power of small communities like BCS and their ability to shape teenagers into well-rounded young adults. Our family has fallen in love with the Eastern Townships of Quebec, and we can think of no better environment to raise our children."
Hailing from Nova Scotia, Gingi has been the Associate Director of Admissions at BCS since 2014. Prior to joining the BCS Admissions team, she worked in the areas of enrolment and international student services at several Canadian universities. Gingi’s passion is education in general, and specifically building meaningful relationships and helping students transition to the fulfilling life of boarding school.
Although she feels that there are many great parts about BCS, Gingi’s favourite part is the international component. From the diversity of the student body, the international curriculum, and the global approach to student life in general, it is an invaluable component to learning in our connected world. “Students and families often don’t realize the true value of learning in an international environment until they arrive. We do a great job of preparing and building global citizens for a world that needs them!”
