Boarding & Day School Placement

Students have a variety of needs and desires for their educational settings, and each will learn best and be most successful in an environment which offers the appropriate challenges and opportunities.  There is a wide range of educational models and curricula available, and students who are looking for increased or different options, approaches, challenges, and environments can benefit from consultation with an educational consultant.

There are many factors to be evaluated when considering a boarding school: philosophy, peer group, structure, setting, and size.  Teaching and discipline styles, religious affiliation, and the role of arts and athletics are additional elements that define each school.

If one is considering a boarding school, then it is critical to make sure that the "fit" is right.  Educational Directions evaluates a student's needs, strengths, weaknesses, interests, skills, and likes/dislikes and helps to direct families to choices that will provide the optimum setting for growth and success.  Educational Directions is a member of the Secondary School Admission Test Board (SSATB) and is an independent testing site for the administration of the SSAT, the admission test required by most boarding schools and many days schools.
