Experience the Benefits
Boarding schools are the better life preparation path from high school, college, career, and beyond. At boarding school, students have the opportunity to study and live with students and teachers who share their passion to learn and grow in a fun environment. Boarding students have the opportunity to try many activities or fine-tune a passion with plenty of support.
The Boarding Experience
“It’s great going to boarding school. I’ve grown up a lot over this past year. You really learn how to take care of yourself. Of course, there are adults here to help you but you also have to learn good time-management skills, good organization.”
“Being a boarding student has made me focus on what I want to be in the future. You interact with so many people wanting to be successful that it inspires you to achieve something in life.”
“I’m so grateful for the four years of experience that pushed me to grow, learn, and believe in unlimited potentials.”
“The leadership characteristics I’ve been able to develop here have helped me immensely. Thinking back to who I was and who I would have been is amazing. I’ve been able to do so many different things here where at other schools, you get one club or one sport to choose.”
“I learned the sense of community, the balance between a rigid setting and a place of togetherness. It is a place where if you want to be pushed to your potential, you can make incredible strides.”
“Farragut taught me a lot of things to make me a better person. It has been a large part of my life and was my second home.”
“The faculty and staff at Farragut taught us how to think and respect others. That you are responsible for what you say and do. Most importantly we learned to judge someone by their character and actions not by the color of their skin, language they speak or their possessions.”
“Our boarding students have a huge advantage when they matriculate to college because they are socially mature, responsible adults and are truly prepared for that college life. College admissions staff always tell us how favorably they look at applications from students who have attended a boarding high school. It really sets them apart.”
