Find schools for students age 10-18
There are more than 300 boarding schools in the U.S.
In the United States there is a network of independent residential schools for boys and girls aged 10 to 18 years old—boarding schools.
Boarding schools were established by dedicated educators to fulfill a mission. These goals were usually for students to achieve excellence in academics, gain sound moral and spiritual character, and develop physical strength and dexterity, usually through competitive sports.
The primary purpose of the majority of U.S. boarding schools is to fully prepare young students to gain enrollment at leading universities. Some of these schools are over 200 years old and have educated many of the world’s most influential and successful business executives, politicians, scientists, educators and leaders of the 20th century.
