Boys secondary schools are ideal for teenage boys looking to evolve their interests in a safe atmosphere where they can express their thoughts and opinions without feeling self conscious in ways that they might around young women.  

At this important stage of development, when moments of feeling awkward or uncertain are plentiful, boys school students have a lot of support from strong role models and peers as they develop their identities and build self-confidence.

In this atmosphere, boys have many opportunities to ask questions and explore their passions with the necessary support to reach their goals during the school year and beyond.

Many private all-boys high schools also offer a boarding option where students live in residential facilities, participate in extracurricular activities and get additional support all on the same campus. Though curricula vary widely by school, all of them provide a range of humanities and social sciences, mathematics, natural sciences, sports, arts, and languages courses as well as social and academic clubs, and AP or IB programs.

Tutoring may also be provided before or after school along with learning study assistance, career planning services, university counseling and exchange programs, among a selection of additional benefits.

Choosing a high school for your son

It may seem difficult to choose the right school for your son with so many different options available. However, the process doesn’t have to be daunting.

Start by thinking about your son’s needs first and foremost and speak to an advisor or educational consultant if you feel it will be helpful in assessing his interests and needs. Then research different schools based on the factors that are important to your family and involve your son in the process. Compare profiles, explore school websites and attend annual school fairs like the Our Kids Private School Expos, or plan to visit the school for a private tour or during their Open Houses.

Bring your son along if possible to experience the atmosphere and prepare questions to ask school staff, current students, or even the parents of current students.  Develop your shortlist of schools your family is interested in applying to and continue with the application process from there.

Applying to a boys high school

Keep in mind that the application deadlines will vary by school and remember to confirm those dates as well as their application fees. Very often schools will request copies of printed documents such as transcripts and report cards, among other forms, and your son may also be required to take an entrance test or SSAT.  Read more about the application process and what you need to know in Applying to Schools.
