Today, now more than ever, receiving a proper education is the leading factor in establishing a future that is both rewarding and fulfilling. With more and more Fortune 500 Companies requiring a college degree to enter into a meaningful position within a particular field, parents of pre-college students are seeking viable and affordable alternatives to  educate their children in the most advantageous form there-by providing an opportunity for their children to experience all that life has to offer.


Where academic grades are a major factor reviewed my many college admissions boards, a more profound approach to college preparation has continued to gain popularity at an increased pace.

From Ivy League colleges to a more standardized approach to college preparation, boarding schools continue to receive additional recognition that surpasses all other more traditional approaches to college preparation with the development of a child beyond classroom attendance.

To date, there are literally hundreds of boarding schools across the United States and Middle East as well as Asia, each offering a wide spectrum of curriculum and extended sports activities including specialized schools for troubled teens suffering from emotional and disciplinary problems.

Regardless of the school selected, boarding schools offer students a chance for total fulfillment, developing each on an individualized basis with a long tradition of academic excellence and experiences that exceed, or go beyond the more traditional classroom attendance. From onsite, extended away from home “live on” campuses to localized “day” locations within a local community, boarding school graduates often become the leaders of tomorrow leading exceptional lives today.

Stressing a family atmosphere, boarding schools limit classroom sizes to smaller more intimate, carefully selected groups, to enhance the overall learning experience. With highly qualified instructors, students are introduced to classes that prepare them for a unique college experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.

From All Girls, All Boys to Co-Ed and Military, students attending boarding schools are taught to “learn to live” while accelerating academically at an increased pace. From an average of 17-18 hours of homework on a daily basis, students are challenged to achieve their highest potential there-by challenging each individual to achieve their highest potential never before thought possible.


The selection of an appropriate school for any given child should not be done in haste. Careful consideration should be given to each prospective selection with possible “on-site” visitation to as many schools as possible to become familiar with the campus, dorms and local surroundings.

Such visitations reassure the parents of placing their child in the proper school while providing additional supportive information to the prospective child that may be in attendance. Being away from home for the first time can be and often is a new alarming experience for the parents as well as the prospective student who have not ventured beyond a parents love and daily attention.

With a never ending list of possibilities to consider in selecting a proper boarding school, parents and the prospective student should select a boarding school that is a home away from home.
