A Bermudian student and alumnus share what Albert College means to them.
Meet Thomas, a Grade 11 student at Albert College from Bermuda. We asked Thomas what Albert College meant to him. Here is what he had to say:
"This is my second year at Albert College, and I have felt welcomed and supported each and every day. The school has an incredible way of bringing students and staff together from different cultures, fostering caring relationships and an engaging learning environment. I have found a small, community environment beneficial for me inside and outside the classroom. I have developed meaningful relationships with my classmates, and am encouraged and supported by my teachers.
With the onset of COVID-19, I know I can count on the excellent boarding staff to make me feel safe and at home. Their dedication has brought us all closer together and boarding life has remained a fun place to be despite the circumstances. AC has offered relentless support, championing a strong community and becoming my home away from home. I am proud to be a part of this family!"
