During this Back To School season, are you considering future high school options for your new-born I mean kindergarten middle school child? If so, boarding school may have crossed your mind or come up in conversation, and you probably have a lot of questions. Even though there are about 180 boarding schools around the country, many parents only know a few people who attended one. You may be wondering:

  • Who goes to boarding school? Why do they choose to “go away”?
  • Is it just for people raised in the Northeast? On an Ivy League track?
  • Aren’t they very exclusive and expensive? 
  • Won’t my child be so far away if they go to boarding school?
  • When should we start looking and evaluating? Is it the same timing as high school applications?
  • Are they all single sex or are there co-ed boarding schools?
  • Does it start in 9th grade?
  • Is there financial aid if we decide it is a great option for our child?
  • What are the upsides vs a local school?
  • Do they all look like Hogwarts?

If you’ve been wondering if the boarding school experience would be good for, or appeal to, your child, the September 11 Boarding School 101 Info Fair is a great option for you and your family to learn more.

Hosted by scoopcharlotte, Charlotte Preparatory School and Garrett Educational Consulting, Boarding School 101 offers the opportunity for you to attend at no charge a panel discussion and meet & greet with over 20 of the best boarding schools in the Eastern US.
