As competition for entrance to higher education institutions keeps rising, the need of preparing your child for success in school has become more clear. Boarding schools are known to be college preparation institutions. While public and private schools can match (and sometimes exceed) the academic intensity of boarding schools, they can never adequately model and teach the life skills required for confidently joining university life. The social skills and character building gained while experiencing the communal and social parts of boarding school life, in particular, remain to be a valuable asset in any student’s life.

TigerCampus, along with expert independent school consulting partner Choice Boarding Consultants will provide you with consulting and application assistance for entering the top boarding schools in the United States.
