Why are boarding schools good for teenagers?

Let me tell you… 

Studying in a boarding school, you can focus on your studies.  This is one of the best reasons for teenagers to study in a boarding school.

You usually have a very small class in school.  In public school, you will have 30~40 student in each class, but most boarding schools have only 10~20 students in each class.

You gain more knowledge and care from teachers here at boarding school.  Also, you learn how to take responsibilities on your own.

You can also have fun while in boarding school.  Activities such as sports, arts, specialized classes and so on.

Each boarding school usually has a big library, where we can read lots of books.

Therefore, studying in a boarding school, students usually learn more knowledge than the students who study in the public schools.

SEOThere actually not that many high schools that offer SEO and Internet Marketing as a class as this is such a new field.  Also this class is a pre-professional class meaning that if you were to take this class at least for one year, you would be able to go out and get a job.

Most schools do not teach this class because they do not understand the benefits to this class.  It is actually one of the highest paying jobs now all around the world. We offer and encourage students her at Canyonville Christian Academy. We do this because we think that this class is one of the basic needs a student needs in their studies, considering the fact that internet or internet marketing is one of the big things out there. Some students that come to this class are not really interested in this class, but after they’ve learn’t the basics of this class they usually go on and take it the next year. One of the most amazing things that most people don’t realize is that their lives revolve around the internet. They are always online looking at social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest e.t.c. Some of these students are looking at school sites too. Like if they want to go to a certain college, they are usually applying through that site. If you take it seriously it would really help in getting a great job;not only a job, but a well payed job.

Resourceful uses of iPad2 in Education.

I think the iPad has several uses in schools, and has been loved as a great tool for homeschooling. According to WikiPedia, soon after the iPad was released, it was reported that 81% of the top-book apps were for children. The iPad has also been called a revolutionary tool to help children with autism learn how to communicate and socialize better and easier.  Many colleges and universities have also used the iPad. Youngstown State University in Youngstown, Ohio, began offering three-hour rentals for the iPad for its Fall 2010 semester, in addition to rentals for the Amazon Kindle, laptop computers, and Flip cameras.

Apps available for Education.

iPadWith the iPad, the classroom is always at your fingertips.  Right now at the App Store, there are thousands of apps available to download.  Students can track their assignments, take notes, and study for finals.  The beauty of this is that teachers can give lessons, monitor progress, and stay organized, and that’s just the beginning.

The three iWork apps help students and teachers put together professional-looking documents, presentations, and spreadsheets no matter where they are.  Pages is a powerful word processor with simple-to-use layout tools and a large keyboard.  With Keynote, it’s easy to create presentations with animations and effects.  And Numbers lets students and teachers build compelling, attractive spreadsheets in minutes, including tables and charts.  When you finish what you’ve been working on, just tap the AirPrint icon to print it out directly from your iPad.

Five Facts of Boarding School Life

Posted in High Academics on December 13th, 2010 by admin — Be the first to comment!

By offering quality courses, a good student/teacher ratio, and plenty of personal interaction, boarding schools equipe their students for success.   The following five facts courtesy of TABS explain this in greater detail.

CCAPromise of Better Academics –  60% of students enroll in boarding schools because of the promise of better education. Over 90% of students admit they find their schools academically challenging.  Another fact is that boarding school students spend more than twice as many hours ( 17 hours boarding school vs. 8 hours public school) a week on homework than their peers in public schools.

24-Hour Learning – Due to the unique and encouraging campus environment boarding schools provide, students are tremendously active outside the classroom.  These students participate in more extracurricular activities than other students, whether it is exercising and playing sports (12 hours vs. 9 hours), engaging in creative endeavors like music and painting (6 hours vs. 4-5 hours), or participating in student government and club activities (35% vs. 27%).  Teachers are also on campus to help encourage and nurture (mentor) students in all these areas.

Learning to Lead – One distinctive characteristic of boarding schools is that character development counts as much as academics.  The environment of which teachers live among their students, and students live away from home, allows itself to the development of self-discipline and independent thought.  Leadership opportunities also emerge. More than three quarters of boarding school students are given leadership opportunities, with teachers and deans mentoring those talents, which is a far higher percentage than public and private school students.  This also allows students to gain the specific advantage of regular interaction with their teachers outside of the academic setting.

College Ready – Boarding school environments along with greater mentor guidance and greater personal responsibility, deliver graduates to universities with an unequaled level of preparation.  Eighty-seven percent of graduates agree in this, while nearly 80% added that they were equally prepared in the non-academic aspects of college life, which includes independence, social life, and time management.  Public school students state that they were in no way prepared for college let alone college life.

Getting Ahead – Beyond college, boarding school graduates are most often professionally accomplished and philanthropically active adults. By mid-career, more boarding school graduates achieve top management positions with more frequency than students from other schools. More impressively, 60% of alumni give to social service organizations, compared with 46% of all others.
