"Boarding was probably what ensured my success at school. It kept me closer to work, and I probably pursued personal endeavours I would not otherwise have done. It's like a permanent sleepover party!"
—Audrey, girls' boarding school graduate.
Boarding school offers uniquely strong preparation for the academics and independence of life in university. As one school admissions counselor says, "Boarding school grads know how to handle their time and do their laundry." Boarding school also offers unique instruction in "life skills," inlcuding leadership, self confidence and personal repsonsibility. University housing administrators and professors will often admit that you can pick boarding school grads out of the crowd of first year students. "They simply seem to be better organized."
