Junior Boarding Schools
We help families benefit from unique educational opportunities.
Not as well known as secondary boarding schools, junior boarding schools offer an unparalleled learning environment for students in sixth through ninth grades. Early adolescence encompasses one of the most dramatic—and vulnerable—phases of child development. During this special time, the tight-knit community of a boarding school can offer structure, challenge, and nurturing from exceptional adult mentors, who serve as teachers, coaches, and residential life advisors. Junior boarding schools are known for helping students find their confidence. The ninth grade year at these schools encourages students to become role models to younger peers at a time when they are developmentally ready to embrace the concept of leadership.
A junior boarding school education can be a life-changing gift to a child: nurturing his or her initiative and resiliency, and laying the foundation for success in secondary school, college, and life. The Bertram Group helps families identify and access these opportunities.
