Why a Family Should Consider a Girls Boarding School
Westover School head Ann Pollina joins us for short conversation covering “why should a family consider and an all girls’ boarding school?”
Pollina makes he case that the question requires two answers, one for the entire family, and the other for the student.
Pollina explores how a girls school provides an environment unlike any other. Yes, great academics are part of the story but a girls school experience is all encompassing. Students build life-long friendships, develop close relationships with faculty, and explore leadership and expression.
Listen closely and you’ll hear that the foundation on which the school and student experience lies is a safe environment in which the girls are comfortable enough to explore and think through issues and problems using the support of each other and a mentoring faculty.
As Pollina quotes an alumna, “What’s inside of me from my four years [at Westover] is what I’ve built my life on.”
