Reasons To Choose Boarding School

Contrary to traditional education throughout the United States and Canada, independent boarding schools are formal education institutions wherein students can live, eat, study, and play on the campus of the school.  Students can receive a tailored academic experience among a wide variety of class offerings within small classroom settings which cater to their individual needs and learning style (extra-help and academic support is easily available).  

In addition to outstanding academics, there are so many ways that an independent boarding school experience can benefit one's education:


Developing Life Skills

Independent boarding school students can develop important life skills such as time management, work ethic, and independence through their campus experiences - both in and outside of the academic classroom.

“I would say that the potential opportunity to get into a stronger university is better coming from a boarding school.”


Personal Growth

The independent boarding school experience provides students with invaluable opportunities for personal growth and development as they gain confidence in an extremely supportive environment.

“The small classroom sizes help to give students more individualized attention and exposure to the curriculum and to the teachers.  They just don’t fall through the cracks.  This is a huge plus.”


Accessible Co-Curriculars

Independent boarding school students are provided with a wonderful opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports, groups, clubs, committees, teams, and organizations which play a big role in their overall experience and contribute to their development.

“Students lives are more encompassing at a boarding school.  You are fully ingrained into the school and culture: the academics, athletics, arts, extracurriculars, and socialization.”
