MS/HS Day & Boarding School Advising
Why is an Independent School education valued in middle school and high school?
Independent day and boarding schools are excellent options because they provide exciting learning environments, individualized attention, structure and discipline to learn strong work habits & skills.
Small class sizes enable teachers to form close relationships with students. Because Independent Schools are not burdened by the bureaucracy and regulations public schools face, they are able to offer a more robust and innovative program, providing a competitive edge for college admissions. The community of students at Independent Schools tends to work hard and value learning.
Boarding Schools offer great academics and athletics, as well as a wide range of extracurricular activities. By living away from home, one learns how to cope with life before college within a community of peers who value education, and in a structured and caring environment.
Our Day & Boarding school Expert, Deb Borden, has been an educator and administrator in Independent Schools for over 30 years.
Deb prides herself on building close relationships with her students and their families.
