Summer is always a welcomed break from school and schedules. But as the new school year creeps closer, you and your family may have a big decision to make.
If you’re considering a boarding school for your son, we understand that you have a lot of questions and, perhaps, a few uncertainties.
It’s normal to wonder if your son will realize his potential, find success, fit in, make friends, have fun, and be happy.
Your son is uniquely different and fosters his own set of strengths, needs, and interests. To support him completely – academically, socially, physically, and emotionally – he needs a school that is committed to developing to total young man.
