Why Boarding School
The boarding school experience is an ideal way for students to optimize both academic learning and social development. Under the close supervision and guidance of our faculty and staff, students are encouraged to challenge themselves intellectually while developing their social skills, athletic and extra-curricular interests, personal maturity and ethics. Sharing common areas in the dorms and around campus, students learn the arts of patience and compromise with their neighbors and peers. They also quickly learn the importance of trust and respect. As a result of living, eating and studying together, boarding students graduate with maturity and confidence, an understanding of others who may be different from themselves and a close bond with classmates that will endure for the rest of their lives.
