Sending Your Child To A Boarding School?

A boarding school is a place where children are given formal education while still living within premises. The word "boarding" is used in the broader sense of "housing and boarding", i.e. meals and boarding. As they've existed for several centuries and continue to do so, their purpose and ethos vary widely. Here we'll take a look at some of the most common kinds of boarding schools -

The first kind is a college prep boarding school. These are typically for students who are either going to college or already at college. It is common for parents of students going to college to send them to such a boarding school so they can be observed during their time there. If you decide to send your child to such a school, make sure you research it extensively first, as there are many options available.

The best international school is private schools, which are available for students living in a specific area and/or under certain criteria. For instance, they are sometimes only for students living in certain neighbourhoods. They may also be for students living in a certain catchment area. This is very different from public boarding schools, which are available to students regardless of criteria.

Then there's the third category - co-ed general boarding schools. As the name suggests, they are for students who are either (a) going to or have already attended public (state) or private (church) schools. As their name implies, they are separate from (and often above) religious boarding schools. However, some parents may send their children to co-ed general boarding schools on the grounds that both types of school offer similar educational programs.

Some parents prefer to send their child to co-ed schools, because they feel it offers more flexibility than public schools. Private boarding schools are more likely to allow parents to oversee the progress and well-being of their child, in contrast to public schools, where it is often left in the hands of the school authorities. Additionally, private schools may provide greater social interaction and encouragement amongst pupils, as opposed to the camaraderie that can be found in some public schools.

Finally, some parents choose military boarding schools for their child, for various reasons. One reason is to send their child to an environment where discipline is stricter, especially where that child has experienced some form of abuse. Parents who wish to send their child to military boarding schools often cite discipline as a key reason for sending their child to such a school. Another reason might be to send their child to a boarding school with a strong religious background. They feel that the stronger Christian faith offered by some boarding schools can help their child grow and have a good Christian education. Read more now about a school at
