Many parents don’t like the concept of sending a child to boarding school; a child’s adolescence is a distinctively effective phase which entrusting it to others seems wrong. Yet boarding schools prosper and successors to institutions date to medieval times.
Today’s schools are almost filled with talented teachers who involve their students in an experience which surpasses the challenge presented by day schools. Parents need to understand the advantages and challenges of prep schools before they make any decisions.

There are following challenging questions parents must ask themselves before considering a boarding school for their child:
- Does your kid need the academic and intellectual engagement which lies at the centre of the most demanding schools?
- Are there behavioural issues that demand a therapeutic school for your child?
- Is your child prepared to live away from home through adolescence and learning life lessons from dorm parents and teachers?
If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions, then boarding schools are a welcome choice for your children as their “family.” As much as boarding schools like to use the word “family” to describe their school atmosphere, they are willing to dismiss a child for breaking the disciplines.
Always remember that no school should be a replacement for a child’s own parents.
