The lack of quality education in many public high schools today are forcing parents to seek alternative options for the education of their teens. Boarding schools offer a viable solution, giving teens greater opportunities for the education they need. At the same time, to ensure teens receive the best education, parents will need to be selective in the school they choose.

Licensing and Accreditation

When it comes to standard of education, not all boarding schools are the same. Schools that are licensed by the Department of Education and accredited by associations such as The National Association of Private Schools or the Association of Christian Schools International are more apt to provide a higher level of education. Before enrolling your teen in a boarding school, check the school’s background and reputation to be sure it is the kind of school you need.

Teachers and Academic Standard

Qualified teachers and staff are key to your teen receiving a quality education. Some boarding schools require teachers and staff to pass background checks before they are hired in order to maintain a high standard. Parents should also go over the school’s academic curriculum to ensure it offers a well balanced and challenging education that will benefit their teens for the future.

Most boarding school environments offer a very high academic standard, far exceeding that of the average public high school. In addition to comprehensive studies in the four core subjects of Language Arts, Math, Science and History, many boarding schools top off their curriculum with challenging electives to hone their students’ talents and skills in the areas they are interested in most. These areas may range from computer courses to foreign languages, music and the arts, industrial arts, etc.

Boarding schools also offer smaller classroom settings for more personalized teacher attention. Teens who are struggling in certain aspects of their education can get the extra help they need to excel in those areas.

Recent studies reveal that students who attend a boarding school are more apt to complete their secondary education that those who attend public schools. The quality of education provided by a boarding school will also be extensively higher. Young people who succeed in high school have greater chances of succeeding in other areas of their lives as well.
