What are the benefits of boarding School?
While there are many great reasons to explore boarding school as an educational option, and we always encourage you to take the time to visit a school to see the value first hand, there are some important things to consider when exploring the opportunity:
1) Research proves that boarding schools serve a diverse body of motivated students who study and live in supportive, inclusive academic communities where they learn about independence and responsibility-values that help them achieve success at higher rates than private day and public school students-in the classroom and beyond.
2) Boarding Schools provide an unparalleled tradition of academic excellence and diverse curricula, supported by intimate classroom settings, passionate faculty, and state-of-the-art facilities. Dedicated to providing a liberal arts education where students learn to think independently, boarding school teachers seek out student opinions, ideas and responses.
