Boarding school in the United States provides a perfect home away from home for Canadian students or an ideal immersion in Western culture and the English language for students from countries abroad, such as China, Korea, Japan and India.

The number of unique programs available, the sweeping variety in class and campus sizes, the range in tuition and dress codes (and everything else!) means that the selection of boarding schools in the US has something for everyone.
