A New Role for Boarding Schools

In the last decade, the role of boarding schools in America has been in transition.  Schools that began as  finishing schools for children of wealthy American families have become a vehicle for opportunity as enrollment of Asian students, in particular, has grown.  Now considered a conduit for overseas students interested in American universities, boarding school attendance in the USA during secondary school years ensures that students become proficient in English and possess the academic requirements to attend American colleges and universities.   Currently the percentage of international students in American boarding schools exceeds 15%, with numbers from South Korea, China and India significantly on the rise.

    The cultural makeup of students attending the top college prep baording schools has certainly changed over the last decade. Reading this article has raised several questions for me. Has this impacted which schools North American families choose to send their children to prepare them for college in the United States? Have these boarding schools adjusted to the needs of the students from countries such as China, Korea and India in terms of academic support, ESL support and also emotional support? Have the teachers been given adequate training to work effectively with the cultural mosaic in their classrooms? Let me know what your experience has been!
