Students choose boarding schools for many good reasons: some are looking for broader curricular options, a greater variety of courses; some want a wider variety of extra-curriculars, sports or activities that aren’t available locally; some students benefit from structure and supervision and from the interaction with caring faculty mentors; some students like the idea of a close knit group of friends. Whatever the reason, the choice of the appropriate boarding school is an important one. An educational consultant–in addition to recommending schools that are a good match–can support the application process.
Traditional boarding school options range from schools with highly academic, intensely rigorous academic curriculum to warm, nurturing schools catering to students who learn differently or may need structure and support to be successful. Traditional boarding schools feature smaller classes and exceptional facilities.
