Boarding Schools in the United States
The United States offers a huge variety of boarding schools, ranging from small schools in the mountains to large residential programs in major cities like New York, Chicago or Dallas. Many schools have college-prep curriculums and may also specialize in the performing and visual arts, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), military training or outdoor sports like skiing or sailing. Some programs are faith-based; others may still include some religious traditions. There are both single-sex and coed programs. There are also therapeutic programs or schools that offer extra structure and emotional or academic support to students who need it.
