What's so great about boarding school?

It gives you the chance to try new things, build amazing friendships, challenge yourself, gain independence, figure out what inspires you, and discover all that you can achieve when given the opportunity.

Top 3 Reasons to Choose Boarding School

  1. More adventure.
    At boarding school there are so many cool, unique activities, you’ll have the chance to try something different all the time. From arts to athletics to off-campus explorations, it’s easy to pursue your interests and discover new ones.
  2. More friends.
    Living on campus, there’s always someone to hang out with, help with homework, or watch a movie with. Plus, you get to meet people from all over the world, and before you know it, they become like your second family.
  3. More challenge.
    The academic expectations at boarding school are high, no doubt. But with small classes, individual attention from teachers, and a community of support, you’ll learn and grow in ways you never imagined.

Parents

Boarding school brings out the best.

Giving your child the opportunity to attend boarding school will help them unlock their true potential. That’s because you’re providing them with a superior education, allowing them to gain independence, build character and make lifelong friends. It’s the best preparation for college, and for life.

Here's the Difference

  • Unmatched academic experience. A boarding school education is rigorous. But your child will be surrounded by motivated peers and teachers who support and push each other to succeed.
  • Exceptional college prep. We focus on preparing your child for college from day one – not only getting into a great school, but ensuring they’ll thrive while there.
  • Individual attention. Classes are small, with an average student-teacher ratio of 12-1, so students get more one-to-one time anytime they need it.
