The benefits are Clear

“I’m living with my best friends! We’re together all the time and I’m experiencing life with them. They’ll be in my life forever.”

Benefits of Board School - lounging in hammocks with your best friends!

  1. You’ll live with your best friends.

    What’s better than that?

  2. Your world view will expand.

    You’ll be part of a truly diverse community (our students come from 9 states and 9 countries) & will grow close to girls from all over the world. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to travel.

  3. You’ll be better prepared for college life.

    By the time you get to college, you’ll already know how to handle your independence, how to manage your time and balance fun with obligations.

  4. The person you need is always around.

    Whether you’re looking for a friend to hang out with or a teacher for extra help, support and assistance are always nearby.

“Boarding is fun and we’re really bonded. I feel like I’m living with sisters, not classmates. We are real with each other. We might disagree and argue sometimes, but we always come back together – it really is like a family.”
