Are there billeting opportunities?
Newbridge Academy does offer a Home-Stay program. We match student-athletes with families within the community to provide a safe and reliable atmosphere for the duration of the student-athletes enrolment – likely other local Varsity players and their families. Families are also welcome to make their own arrangements if interested.
