Private Boarding Schools & Christian Private Boarding Schools
Educational enrichment is the cornerstone
of traditional private boarding schools. Founded on the premise
of preparing students scholastically for college, traditional
private boarding schools place much value on academic and/or
athletic success, and require a certain performance level
from their student population. Adolescents are expected to
be motivated, accomplished, and willing to take advantage
of the opportunities available to them, and much emphasis
is placed on long standing personal character and integrity.
Acceptance into traditional private boarding schools is usually
based on academic and intellectual promise, and students must
exhibit enthusiasm and a strong desire to contribute to campus
life. Students who attend such programs are bright, motivated,
and responsible, with few behavior problems or issues. Expectations
are high, and tolerance for acting out behaviors is low.
While social and emotional growth are
inherent components of the traditional private boarding school
environment, there is no structured emotional growth component.
Students are assigned advisors who offer support and guidance,
however they do not serve as counselors. Traditional private
boarding schools cater to adolescents who already possess
a strong sense of purpose and self, and work with them to
further develop a student's intellect, curiosity, excellence,
and creativity. They are not appropriate for students struggling
with issues of self-worth, self-discipline, and/or inadequate
problem solving and decision-making skills and abilities.
Private therapeutic boarding schools would be better suited
for students struggling with these issues.
