US Boarding School Boost Summer Program

Posted On 21.05.2020 | New Offerings

Get a BOOST starting boarding school in the United States! Successfully transitioning to boarding school requires skills in a variety of areas and disciplines. The Boarding School BOOST Summer Program incorporates all of the readiness indicators that we have identified through our years of bridging students for their successful boarding school journey.

Students can attend a 2-week or 3-week program. The program includes daily mathematics classes followed by literature classes in the morning. Students are placed in mathematics classes based on their placement test results. In the afternoon, electives will further engage students.

Guest appearances are planned as well! Our current and past boarding school students will share their experiences and answer pressing questions. ARCH's university consultation team will host a class on academic and university planning. Nevertheless, ARCH’s Leadership Institute will also be introduced to students, where they will be challenged to get outside their comfort zone and tackle tough leadership questions, both independently and in small group discussions under the guidance of our mentors.

Don't let the excitement of getting into boarding school turn to worry. Get a leg up, enroll in the Boarding School BOOST Summer Program today!
