Boarding school can cost 30,000 to 50,000 a year or semester.

The negatives are not seeing your parents. Not being able to go party anytime you want. For some boarding schools, you’re aren’t even aloud to drive. You have a time you should be in your room and the rules are much stricter. And you have agreater chance of being sent home.

Some positives are: You are away from you’re parents. You get to see your friends everyday.

Uniforms aren’t required for all boarding schools. They can be: Where this colored shirt and these colored pants. And no denim. Or they can cost up to 400 dollars and have matching ones.

To get into boarding schools you can either pay or get a scholarship.

Most rooms have 2 roomates.

The rules are extremely strict.

Collages are ok with them. Boarding schools are known also as Collage Prepratory school. So their are also known to hold the highest SAT scores.

I wanted to go to a boarding school too. But it cost too much. Unless you’re are extremely smart or rich, it might be hard to get into one.

boarding schools typically cost about 30,000-40,000 dollars. there are boarding schools that are cheaper for students whose families cannot afford to send them to a regular boarding school. you shouldn’t go to a boarding to have fun. you’re going to learn. boarding schools can be fun. it all depends on how you decide to make your experience. the number of roommates to a room varies on the school’s dorm policies, the number of rooms, the size of the rooms, and the number of boarders. a few good boarding schools include deerfield academy, phillips exeter, phillips andover, nmh. the people that usually go to these schools end up going to ivy league schools. not all boarding schools have uniform. keep in mind that some of the schools’ uniforms are really ugly. you say that you won’t miss your friends and family, but you’ll never know until you actually do it. it’s really hard to leave your family and friends. boarding schools have application deadlines. most require you to take the ssat for the admissions process.

Some are not so expensive. The Hill School in Pottstown, PA is cool. I think it used to be $15,000. It looks like fun. Negatives- Sat. a.m. class. Positive- play a sport each season.

Of course, colleges love them.

you’ll miss animals? I don’t think they keep you in a locked closet for 4 years. I’m sure you’ll see a squirrel or two. Boarding schools cost a lot. If you need to ask, you probably can’t afford one.
