Boarding Schools

Therapeutic Boarding Schools work with children that have a history of substance abuse, behavioral problems, learning difficulties and special needs. Their main focus is providing supportive, structured environments that help children with their communication skills in order to cope with family and emotional growth issues effectively.

The main focus of therapeutic boarding schools is academics, however many offer a range of team sports and other extracurricular activities. In some cases, psychotherapy is available and is offered individually or in groups.

Junior Boarding Schools
Junior Boarding schools offer supportive, nurturing environments for middle school aged children. Teachers work closely with students during these formative middle school years in order to create a positive sense of self and instill a love of learning. Junior boarding schools emphasize the importance of academic skill-building and self-discipline while at the same time creating a fun and supportive learning environment.

Specialty ADD and LD Boarding Schools
Some students with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or learning disabilities (LD) require specialty boarding schools that provide the necessary support and instruction tailored to each individual child. Emphasis on structure, organization, accountability, the ordering of priorities, and multi-sensory instruction helps each student to experience success. These schools offer small classes, supportive teachers, and personal individual attention in a nurturing environment.

College Preparatory Schools
The college preparatory schools' primary goal is to prepare students for the academic rigors of college life. With diverse and challenging curricula, individual attention from teachers and advisors, and a wide range of athletic opportunities, the boarding school experience provides many distinct advantages for their students preparing for college.
