Boarding School Admissions

Some of the top boarding schools such as Phillips Exeter, Andover, Choate Rosemary Hall, Lawrenceville, Hotchkiss, St. Paul’s, and Milton,  have a strong track record of sending students to prestigious universities, as we typically call them “feeder” schools. However, these schools require a rigorous application process to get in. Many of the clients that we work with are international from countries such as Shanghai and Beijing who aspire to study at these premier institutions. Others are based in the United States who seek a rigorous liberal arts education similar to the curriculum they may find at the Ivy League.

Attending a prestigious boarding school can help your odds of admission at these Ivy Leagues if you are able to excel and thrive in this rigorous academic environment. When we work with our middle school students, we evaluate their academic potential to determine whether attending a top boarding school is the right fit for them, as it sometimes can be a double edged sword if the student later finds out that he or she struggles with the rigorous curriculum and could have excelled at an easier school. These are important factors to take into consideration before you decide to shore up a hefty tuition to attend a top boarding school for your child.
