Boarding Schools - What Types are There?

By Nvid Lada Subscribe to RSS | December 13th 2011 | Views:

You've made the choice to begin searching for a Boarding Schools school for your child. With 25 percent of all the essential and secondary schools in the nation listed as private or independent, where do you begin? A good put to start understands the dissimilar types of private schools.

Independent vs. Private Schools

Although "private school" and "independent school" are often used interchangeably the two are different. Typically a private school is part of a larger association such as a church or religious collection of people. In contrast an independent school is just that, independent of other organization with its own board of council or trustees. What they have in common, is that both are funded with instruction, fees and aid.

Private School Grade Levels

Mainly private schools are alienated by grade levels. Students in kindergarten from first to last grade five attend an elementary school, while those in grade six from first to last eight go to a hub school. Junior high is a variation of that idea since is serves students in grades 7 through 9. Private high schools are for students in grades nine through 12 or freshmen during seniors. College Prep is just that: schools with a heavy emphasis on academics which prepare a student to go to college.

Day Schools/Country Day Schools

Day or Country Day schools are private schools which students go to during the day and then go home at night. Naturally Country Day Schools are situated in the country or suburbs.

Boarding Schools

When several people think of a private school, they think of boarding schools. Though only one type of private school, boarding schools where students live in dorms or halls on campus, are the conventional self-regulating school portrayed in movies or books. A residential school, anywhere students live on campus Monday from side to side Friday or all week long, these institutions offer students a highly prepared day with set times for class’s meals, athletics, study and recreation. Most American boarding schools are for students in high school. The cons of leaving to a boarding school is being away from home and have the faculty and advisers making some daily decisions usually left to parents. Being away from home is also an argument for boarding school since it allows students to exert their independence and put up confidence. Some parents also like the daily administration their child will get.
