There are many boarding schools for high school students in this country. However, there are so many that it can be difficult to know which school to choose. We understand how hard this decision can be, and we do everything to help parents make well informed decisions that are right for their unique families.

When looking for a boarding school for your high school student, you will want to ask the school several questions. If your teen is having trouble in school, you may want to ask about the boarding schools’ educational policies. How will this school make learning easier for your child? If your teen is having trouble legally or socially, you may want to ask how the school deals with troubled kids. You might want to discuss disciplinary policies, whether the school offers counseling, and questions on other relevant matters. If your teen needs to be challenged academically, you may want to ask about college prep courses or about how the school is able to meet the needs of your gifted child.

Regardless of what kind of needs your particular child has, you probably want the boarding school to prepare your child for college. To ensure that your child will be ready for college, you should ask the school if their teachers are credentialed. If they are not credentialed, what is the nature of their experience? Will the classes that your child takes transfer to another high school? More importantly, will those classes help your child to get into college? Can the school provide your child with the chance to earn college credit while they are still in high school? Do they have guidance counselors who can help your child find the right college when they are ready to start applying? Does the school offer support for taking the ACT or the SAT?

These questions are an essential part of finding the right boarding school for your teenager. However, it can be difficult to know which questions to ask. It can even be hard to narrow down your list of schools.
