WHY BOARDING SCHOOL?
New Place, New People
At boarding school you will meet new people and live in a new place. The friendships you make will never be forgotten.
At boarding school you can challenge yourself academically and be proud of your work. With every new accomplishment you will learn more about yourself.
Boarding school requires you to take responsibility for your own education, while offering the support and resources to help you succeed.
At boarding school you are encouraged to try something new, and to develop your own sense of self.
Small class sizes, motivated classmates, dedicated teachers, and outstanding facilities contribute to a learning experience hard to find anywhere else.
At boarding school, your interaction with great teachers goes beyond the classroom. Teachers are mentors, advisors, coaches and friends.
Boarding schools are committed to helping families meet the cost. Admission is not based on financial need.
