Boarding Schools For Teen Girls

Add in the constant barrage of influences like sports groups, youth groups, friends, family issues, and even romantic entanglement.

Some of these influences are negative in nature and can affect the academic performance of the student.

Each student is also encouraged to take charge of their own academic program. Once our girls are able to take complete charge of their academic programs.

Once a student is enrolled they are interviewed by our Academic Director for their post-secondary education goals. We take into consideration any career plans the student may have as well. For seniors we make the every attempt to make sure they meet their specific application deadlines for scholarships and admissions. For juniors, we assist the students in preparing and registering for their SAT and ACT test. Students with an IEP (Individualized Educational Program) are also evaluated on a case by case basis.
