Dr Wilder has been a teacher, school administrator, and consultant for international schools around the world for the past 30 years, including two previous summers as an ORA Programme Director for our Queen's College campus at Oxford University.

It has been a privilege to have watched and been a part of ORA over the past several years. One aspect of ORA that keeps me coming back is that it is a growth-minded organization that is always learning and seeking to improve the experience for its students each year. The quality of care, content, and instruction rivals any of the best schools that I have ever been a part of. Student feedback consistently and without exception is that it is a highlight of a student's secondary school experience.

As Programme Director for the ORA Yale campus I have watched many students benefit from world class facilities at Yale University. The colleges in which the students live and eat meals are all on campus, with everything in walking distance. Students are able to experience what it is like to be studying in such a prestigious environment, whilst outside the stimulating classroom sessions, the campus is buzzing with all that young people want for a memorable and rewarding time...

...ORA's Yale courses offer yet more fantastic opportunities to study at a high level, in a stimulating environment, whilst making friends from all over the world. If you are thinking of trying a course here at Yale I would encourage you to do so - it's a once in a lifetime experience!
