Students are taught – To be disciplined, punctual, and independent and to take care of their own needs; to respect and trust one another; to be responsible for their own actions because they are bound by an honor or discipline code. Students are exposed to all aspects of leadership through their life time at school, be it an interest in academics, the arts, music, dance or any other form of expression. Their overall emotional, physical, sport and academic development is more balanced as their progress is monitored far better than any teacher in a day school. The lessons in life learned in boarding school lay a solid foundation for adulthood. This is where they make friends for life. Most boarding school graduates look back at their years in school as a time when lasting friendships were established. Coupled with that is the building of a network of friends and acquaintances who know you and care about you. Boarding schools offer experiences and chance meetings that define a person and help them stay ahead at the same time as leaving one with a proud sense of belonging.
