The leap from high school to college can seem overwhelming for teens. Parents and students are finding that study abroad can help them not only survive but thrive. Also, it helps them build skills that colleges are looking for. Our students are aware of the benefits and challenges of living away from home. Boarding school abroad develops college skills and provides options for a broader experience from which students can prepare for their next life adventure.
Boarding School Abroad Develops College Skills
At Farragut, we take college preparation for all of our boarding school students very seriously. Our teachers and staff understand the importance of producing well-rounded and curious students who will thrive in a more rigorous college environment.
One of the ways we encourage students to face these challenges is to study abroad. Farragut has found that students who choose to study abroad while still in high school benefit in the following ways:
- Increased maturity
- Global consciousness
- Broader worldview
- Proficiency in a second language
- Learning in different cultures
All of these attributes are attractive to college admission boards, especially as the competition for entrance to universities grows. These experiences also dovetail with Farragut’s college prep courses and curriculum which have been designed to treat education as a discovery.
Boarding School Options
Farragut offers boarding for high school students (grades 8-12) through the academic year. Also, there are summer boarding school options. Each of these experiences give students confidence while learning social skills. Additionally, they enhance their academics in the areas of Science, Technology, Mathematics, and Engineering.
Farragut is dedicated to preparing students for success as they move on to college. This is reflected in our summer boarding school, high school boarding, and study abroad programs. We ask our students and their families to adhere to our mission and values, emphasizing the importance of integrity, self-discipline, perseverance, wellness, and fitness. We find that with parental support, Farragut students thrive throughout their academic careers on our campus and off.
