What are Boarding Schools for Children? Boarding schools allow children to live on-campus, in dormitories for the entire school year. The children are generally only allowed to leave campus on weekends and during holidays, depending on their behavior. These are tuition-paid private schools. Some offer scholarships to children of parents who can’t afford them.

Benefits of Boarding Schools

  • Attention given to the children. Boarding school teachers don’t look at their work as a “job” like many traditional school teachers. Instead, they believe that teaching is what they were “called” to do. This means that your boarding school will have highly qualified teachers who are willing to spend extra time with your children. These teachers feel that it’s their duty to give your children that extra push they need to build confidence in themselves.
  • Small class size. These schools allow children to benefit from smaller class sizes. This gives the teachers the ability to interact better with each individual student. This also allows the students to socialize better with their class peers.
  • Responsibility. These schools give the students set routines. Many of these routines can’t be reproduced at home because of parents’ work schedules, or frustration because of the negative behavior of their troubled children. The routines help the students become more responsible, while ensuring that they acquire a quality education. Some of these routines include:
    • Classes at scheduled times
    • Meals at a certain time
    • Person who brings the mail at the same time daily
    • Chores and campus responsibilities
  • Extracurricular Activities. After schools activities are just as important as what is completed in the classrooms. Extracurricular activities enable kids with behavior problems, or other types of difficult children, to be engaged in activities that keep them out of trouble. They also open children up to new interests they can develop throughout life. Some of the activities offered may include:
    • Outdoor survival skills
    • Music and band
    • Arts and theater
    • Non-competitive and competitive sports
  • Preparation for Life. These schools also give children a way to learn independence and responsibility for themselves, to a certain degree. This prepares them for college, as well as adult life. Being self-sufficient allows difficult children to grow into responsible teens, and productive adults. Boarding schools for children are geared towards independence with internal systems in place that allow the children to gain and find their individual place in society.
