Question and Answers for Day Schools

Day or boarding school?

Nights and meals away from home are the difference, by definition, between day and boarding schools. So, of course, the first consideration is whether you and your child are okay with that. Your child's age, family circumstances and distance from the school may also be factors. As well, the choice of living in a community on the school campus and living in the home setting brings into play other aspects of your child's education and upbringing that you may want to discuss with both day and boarding schools you're considering.

You and your child are likely familiar with the day school experience. Learn more about life at boarding schools on the Boarding School microsite.
