East Coast boarding schools carry with them not only a long tradition of providing a quality education for their students, but also a long list of myths that other parts of society have created about them over the years. It is high time that a long hard look is taken at some of these myths, and explain the truth behind the rumors.

  • Diversity and openeducation for all now the focus of East Coast boarding schools
  • East Coast boarding schools carry with them not only a long tradition of providing a quality education for their students, but also a long list of myths that other parts of society have created about them over the years.It is high time that a long hard look is taken at some of these myths, and explain the truth behind the rumors. You might just be surprised at how many you have heard yourself, as well as what reality has shown to be false.
  • The changing face of boarding schools everywhereIf the new millennium has taught us anything, fear of the unknown can run out of control if you only believe rumor and innuendo instead of cold, hard facts.East Coast boarding schools have suffered from these myths more than most, primarily because when you think of the term, boarding school, a picture of an elitist private school from that region is the first that springs to mind.
  • The reality of the last decade has been that even the most traditional schools have needed to adapt in order to survive.What might have been unthinkable for a school to add to their curriculum a decade ago, is now required in order to keep enrollment numbers high.
  • What might have been considered unreachable or unattainable by the average student in society, has now been opened as far as admission is concerned.The prestige and prejudices of the past is now firmly behind these schools, as they should be, to better serve future generations to come.
  • Myth: You cannot attend boarding school unless you are wealthyThis first myth has long been applied to schools all around the East Coast, as well as in others like Pennsylvania boarding schools. The truth is that this practice is one of the past, and will continue to be false in the future. More schools are opening their doors to students across all socioeconomic conditions, and even New York boarding schools are now offering scholarships for students in need.
  • Myth: Boarding schools lack diversityAlso false, the level of diversity in today’s boarding schools has been steadily growing over the last few years. Boarding schools are now actually more diverse as far as their student population is concerned than most public schools. This is especially true when it comes to international students, and it is the perfect environment for any student to expand their world view.
  • Myth: Boarding schools are only for troublemakersWhile there are specialized boarding schools that cater their curriculum to help students at risk, this statement is not true for the majority of today’s boarding schools. There are strict rules of conduct and deportment, and if a student does have issues, the open environment of a boarding school might help them in ways that a public school could not possibly address.
  • Specialist schools are designed to handle emotional and physical issues, and learning disabilities, helping them break barriers, and making them feel a part of the process, and not a target.http://www.allboyboardingschools.com/
