The Ultimate Goal of Boarding Schools for Girls
When you think about boarding school, many different images pop to your head. Some of them could be good, and some of them could be bad. Most of them come from books and movies you grew up enjoying, but all of them tell you the same thing: it’s a school for someone that needs a little extra attention. That’s ultimately what a boarding school is for, and the ultimate goal of a boarding school for girls is to provide them with the chances they need to succeed in life. Whether your views of a boarding school are positive or negative, take a chance and read on just how Re-Creation Retreat works to achieve their goal.
Since a boarding school is expected to provide extra attention to a child or a troubled teenager, we provide completely personalized attention to our students. Here, our students are able to get one on one tutoring, extra attention from the teachers during class, and help doing their homework if they so desire. We keep our student to teacher ratio low, in order to give the teachers ample time to address everyone’s questions, and no child is left behind in confusion.
A Safe Place to Be
Above all, we provide safety for your child. There’s no concern about them walking home from school, since they’ll be sleeping on the same campus, where there is a constant sense of both community and safety. They won’t have to worry about staying out at a friend’s room late, or finding their way to school early in the morning. We maintain the feeling of community between all of our students and faculty, allowing them to be a part of something bigger without forcing them out into the world unprepared.
A Place to Focus
Does your daughter struggle sometimes to finish her homework? Does it take her too long to finish a problem, simply because she keeps answering texts in the middle of it? At Re-Creation, we help students by providing them with places where they can focus solely on their homework, or on studying. It’s a distraction-free environment for everyone, allowing your daughter to leave behind complicated romances, possible issues in the home, or even worries about an upcoming event. Here she has the ability to sit down and get her homework done all in one go, allowing her more time to enjoy with her friends!
More Things to Do
In a public school, many options are being reduced these days. There are fewer music and theater opportunities, and the school band keeps shrinking. In some schools, the only “elective” courses you can take are foreign languages or gym. When it comes to school, we know that there’s more to it than just English, Math, History, and Science, and that your daughter doesn’t deserve to get burned out on those subjects. We offer many opportunities for them to grow, with various elective courses and events throughout the year. We don’t believe in letting them sit in a stew of learning boring subjects, and never giving them the chance to thrive in what they love.
One of the things we boast about here at Re-Creation is our ability to provide a completely personalized education to our students. If your daughter is a slow learner, or retains more information visually, we’ll find out, and we’ll help her the way she needs to be helped. We’re a no-child-left-behind zone, and we try to make sure that everyone is able to keep up with the curriculum, no matter how they best learn. We test the students as they come to Re-Creation, finding out where they need more help and how they best absorb the information. Once we know what they need, we’ll be able to give it to them exactly how they need it. Your child may be struggling academically, but that does not mean that the coursework is beyond them.
Discipline and Regulation
For a troubled teen, having a certain level of discipline will help them to rejoin the societal traditions they left behind. Keeping children in a regulated schedule not only helps us to keep up with every single teenager, but also helps the children learn a sense of punctuality. In a way, they’ll be learning a real-world application just from having a set schedule. It gives the children a sense of regularity that they may need in their life, and will also help them to enjoy their freedom, in a sense. Instead of constantly having to watch the clock, the timetables will tell them when it’s time to head to the next class, or when there’s time to play with friends and have some fun. It’s both freedom and regulation in one!
Being in a boarding school might not be for everyone, but nearly everyone can benefit from it. Boarding schools constantly work towards the ultimate goal of providing whatever your teenager needs for the life ahead. Re-Creation has been working with girls from all walks of life, and strives to make sure that when they leave, these girls will be ready for whatever the world can throw at them. Whether you come from a privileged life, or live in the not-so-decent neighborhood at the edge of town, your daughter might benefit from attending a boarding school for girls.
