There are several military schools for adolescents in the United States. However, it is very important for you to take the time to find the right one. Asking a few very important questions is one of the keys to finding the right program. Below are some of the questions that you should ask before enrolling your child in a military school.

Is The School Accredited?

This is one of the most important questions that you should consider asking. You want the very best for your child, so it is very important for you to send him or her to a quality school. If the administrator says that the school is accredited, then you should ask him or her about the organization that accredited it. You should also make sure that you ask if the teachers are accredited. If your child has special needs, then you may want to consider asking if there are special education programs available. There are several accredited schools, but Parent Resources can help you narrow down your choices.

How Does The School Handle Behavior Issues?

If you are sending your teen to military school for behavior problems, then you want to make sure that you ask about how the school handles behavior issues. Are teens who are extremely aggressive accepted into this school? If a teen has a criminal record, can he or she attend this school? Those are some of the additional questions that you may want to consider asking. Parent Resources can help you find a school that has people who been trained to handle a variety of disciplinary problems.

How Much Does This School Cost?

Military schools are not cheap. In fact, many can cost over $2,500 per month. That is why you want to make sure that you ask about price when you are choosing a military school for your teen. You want to send your teen to a good school, but you should not go into debt paying for his or her schooling. What is included in the tuition? Do you all offer financial aid? Can I set up payment plans if I am unable to pay the tuition in full at one time? Will my child be able to get transportation to and from the airport? If so, will I be required to pay extra? You may want to consider asking all of those questions. Parent Resources can help you find a military school that fits your budget.
