A Parent’s Boarding School Admission Journal

We’re excited to welcome a new blogger and series to onBoarding Schools. The title, “A Parent’s Boarding School Admission Journal,” will be written by a parent who’s currently going through the school search process. This great new voice- rich with perspective and insight- will be a regular feature of onBoardingSchools during the 2008-2009 school year.

Boarding School Mom” will share, comment, and reflect on her thoughts and experiences as she works to find the best boarding school fit for her youngest child. onBoarding Schools readers will enjoy an open, frank parent’s take on everything from settling on a school list, to school visits, and interviews to working with an educational consultant. If a family has to work through it while finding a school; she’ll probably talk about it.

She brings a wealth of experience and dose of good story telling to the onBoarding Schools audience. This is her family’s third boarding school search and they have worked with the same educational consultant for each child’s admission process.

To maintain privacy and confidentiality, our author writes under the nome de plume “Boarding School Mom” and all family, child consultant and school names will be changed or omitted.
