Benefits of a Learning Difficulties Boarding School
It is clear that if a student is suffering from emotional or behavioral problems they should attend a therapeutic boarding school and that therapeutic boarding schools clearly offer something more (a strong therapeutic component) than a traditional boarding school. Novitas is a specialty school for boys with ADHD, autism, dyslexia and other learning disabilities. We also work with boys who have ADHD, reading issues, writing issues, math issues, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia, Auditory Processing Disorder, Visual Processing Issues, Nonverbal Learning Disabilities and executive functioning issues such as distractibility, inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity.
It is clear that there are advantages to a boarding school education. Although not directly germane to therapeutic boarding schools, The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS) reports that boarding school students are more satisfied with their academic experience than their peers who attended a public school or a private day school.
Students who attend boarding school find their coursework more challenging, and have more confidence in the quality of their teachers than students who attend school from eight to three o’clock. Boarding school students show noticeable increases in maturity, self-discipline, independence, and critical thinking-life skills.Students who attend boarding school tend to:
- Study longer
- Report being around more motivated peers
- State that they are very well prepared for college
- State that their school offers opportunities for leadership opportunities
- Achieve positions in top management by mid-career more often than their day schooled counterparts
Often times boarding school alumni report that the years they spent in boarding school are the central reference point in their life. Alumni tend to consider their years at boarding school as more formative and critical to their personal development than the time they spent in college or graduate school. Everyday boarding school students explore athletic, creative, and leadership-building activities. They learn a strong work ethic and develop the focus they need for lifelong success. Boarding school students learn to take care of themselves (independence), as well as to take care of others (community), and they learn the importance of community service. In short, they learn lessons that will resonate throughout their lives.
The skills students learn at boarding school help them not only in college but beyond. The overwhelming majority of graduates from boarding schools report that if they were given the choice to attend boarding school or to attend a day school they would gladly repeat their boarding school experience because of the superb and dynamic learning experience they encountered.
