About the British American Educational Foundation
Through the Scholars Program the British American Educational Foundation (BAEF) has been providing the opportunity for Americans to study at British boarding schools since 1966. Working closely with each candidate and his or her family, the Foundation identifies the most appropriate school, helps secure admission, and provides its scholars with continuing guidance. In 2009, the BAEF introduced the Gap Fellows Program which places high school graduates as non-paid interns in British boarding schools.
The BAEF's Resources are unequalled for providing Scholars and Fellows with a once-in-a-lifetime adventure combining academic challenge at a carefully selected school with the independence of being abroad, the experience of being immersed in the local traditions and lore of Britain, and the support of the BAEF's professional and experienced advisors.
Founded by a group of American alumni of British schools, the BAEF is a non-profit charitable foundation governed by a Board of Directors, comprised primarily of alumni, and a President. The U.S.-based Executive Director cultivates and maintains ties with both British schools and American guidance counselors.
BAEF Scholars have attended over 100 different British schools. Among those most frequently attended: Benenden, Bryanston, Charterhouse, Cheltenham, Clifton, Cranleigh, Eastbourne, Eton, Gordonstoun, Haileybury, Harrow, King's Canterbury, Lancing, The Leys, Malvern, Marlborough, Oundle, Radley, Repton, Roedean, Sevenoaks, Uppingham, Winchester, Wycombe Abbey.
