Alternatives Paths to College - Consider Boarding Schools
Written by Mark Sampson,
In a changing global world, education is becoming more and more important - and so is planning. We are constantly faced with trouble and turmoils as young adults because our plans don't come to fruition. Or, perhaps, we missed out on an opportunity because we weren't prepared to face the market. What if there was a way to get the education we need for our young adults so that they can succeed well into the future?
What should you do to Ensure That Your Child Is Going to Have the Best Future?
It all starts with early preparation. Often, boarding schools provide the structure that your young adult needs to really succeed. Boarding schools and college preparatory schools have been around for hundreds of years, and still prove to be successful in a few different ways:
-Rigorous Education Standards: They drive students to perform much higher than their peers in public school. In fact, these students are so well prepared for their futures that they are scoring as many as 6-9 points on average higher on their ACT. This offers students the opportunity to get into better colleges, make better connections, and have much happier and healthier lifestyles. Studies show that college graduates make over 40 percent more than non-graduates in the same time span.
-Constant Career Counseling and Modeling: This helps students to visualize their future and recognize what opportunities are available to them and their interests. When your young adult leaves boarding school, they will be better prepared to face the large decisions and experiences that will come along. They also gain a sense of independence that will move them forward and make a mark on the world by establishing their own identity.
-Establish Prioritizing and Study Habits: This will make them a more powerful and efficient student,
Enroll your young adult in boarding schools and you'll marvel at how much they change, and how focused their future is. You'll be astounded at their abilities and be proud of your choice.
