After a year of school shut-downs, on-line learning only classes, and remarkable stress on parents and students, many families want to find out about boarding schools nearby. Sending a child or teen to a private boarding school may seem like the best option when the child falls behind in academics, or when isolating at home from friends takes an emotional toll on a young teen.
Although some private boarding schools sent students back home for a brief time during the Covid-19 pandemic, many made significant change to in-person, on-campus learning, social activities, and boarding school life. In fact, most private boarding schools offer regular Covid-19 testing to ensure the health and safety of students, and staff living on-campus.
With students returning, boarding schools also want to open up to new students who need the on-campus interaction at meals, activities, and in the classroom in order to succeed academically, and socially. With many factors that contribute to a student’s success now and in the future, private boarding schools may offer just what some parents need to find right now for their child.
But how do you find the best boarding school for your son or daughter?
Before you dive into the internet search, think about what might be a good fit for how your son or daughter behaves, learns, and makes choices now.
Private boarding schools offer a range of options, including co-ed on-campus schools, male only or female only campuses and classes, and ‘catch-up’ academic programs for students with learning issues. You can also look for private boarding schools that focus on troubled young boys or girls, or young teen boys or girls. These students include kids with behavior issues, kids involved with bad influences or addictions, and kids struggling with relationships with family.
As you explore websites of private boarding schools, be sure to check what seems to fit with your child. Then look into making contact with the enrollment office, and ask all your questions, including the expected payment for tuition and boarding.
