Boarding Schools For Troubled Teens
Boarding schools are independent, college preparatory schools that provide housing facilities for students and faculty. Boarding schools are sometimes referred to as "intentional communities" because the faculty and staff at boarding schools work very hard to create an environment for students that is safe, academically challenging, active, and fun.
Boarding schools are well known for their academic excellence. With small class sizes, diverse curricula, and individual attention from teachers and advisors, the boarding school experience gives students many distinct advantages. Boarding school students acquire the abilities that help ensure success in college and in life.
During the academic year, boarding schools become extended families where teachers and students live and learn together. The 24-hour community of a boarding school environment allows the faculty to seize every teachable moment whether in the classroom, on the playing field, or in the dormitory.
There are many different types of boarding schools. If you decide boarding school is for you, the first step to choosing a school is to consider what type of school will best serve the student. Not all boarding schools will accept a troubled teen, or a student that does not want to be there. We however know which schools do accept a troubled teen and we are willing to provide you with information about each or these schools.
Types of Boarding Schools:
- Girl Boarding Schools
- Boy Boarding Schools
- Military Boarding Schools
- Private Boardingh Schools

While boarding schools differ among these broad types, they also differ in their philosophy and mission. Because no two boarding schools are alike, matching a student with an appropriate boarding school is a big step toward ensuring future success.
