Future Success

We believes there are five main advantages to the education of a boarding school, and you’ll find them reflected in different ways on our website.

First, boarding schools provide unequaled academics, supported by small classes and heightened interaction between students and their teachers, who see their work as a calling, not a job.

Secondly, it has a unique campus environment in which they live, students are immersed in a special setting that promotes the camaraderie of common experience, friendship among peers, and a trust and honesty with mentors and adults that endures for a lifetime.

Third, boarding school graduates are uniquely prepared for college life. Statistics show that graduates, on average, attend the nation’s finest universities and arrive at college better prepared for both the academic rigor and social challenges that universities present.

Fourth, boarding school graduates are conditioned for future success. Studies have shown that boarding school graduates not only excel at some of the leading universities in the country, but also advance rapidly in their professional careers, and are more civically engaged than their peers.

Fifth and finally, boarding schools place on students what they not only want but need—a calibrated independence. Living on campus provides an unparalleled setting for learning how to live with and among peers, and provides countless teachable moments for mentors to reinforce the endless lessons of both school and life. By the time graduates arrive at university or their first job, they’re fully prepared for the challenges and responsibilities of adult life.
