LINDEN BOARDING SCHOOL EXPO – Saturday, 19 November 2016

One of the greatest gifts a parent can give a child:  Boarding Schools

Prestigious Boarding Schools return to Jakarta


Providing a Boarding School education is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give to a child.  Not only do these Schools help students attain the best degrees and qualifications, they provide a foundation for life and personal friendships that last forever.  Many of the world’s kings and queens; presidents and prime ministers; as well as our greatest business leaders have had the privilege of a Boarding School education. Boarding Schools possess outstanding traditions of academic supremacy, and are built on educational models of diverse curricula.  Students are taught by highly qualified and exceptionally motivated teachers.  Couple this with small classes that encourage meaningful interaction, as well as learning that extends beyond the classrooms in activities, sports, and artistic ventures, and you’ll quickly understand why their graduates are scholarly, resourceful and endowed with a sophistication and enlightenment far beyond their peers.

At boarding schools, learning extends beyond the classroom. Because staff and students live together, students benefit from countless “teachable moments” inside and outside of the classroom.

Boarding school students also participate in more extracurricular activities than students in state schools, whether playing sports, engaging in creative endeavors like music or painting, or participating in student government and school club activities.

Boarding school environments can range in character from arts-focused to militarily-oriented, but almost always feature a student body composed of young people from a diversity of backgrounds.  At boarding school, students are empowered to achieve their true potential and enjoy a measure of real independence.

Because they are not living at home, boarding school students are required to learn how to live with, trust, and respect their peers in an environment of “structured freedom”.  As many graduates have remarked, there are few substitutes for having to manage your own academic and personal responsibilities at a young age. Boarding schools also offer the priceless gift of preparing young people for future success. The academic rigor and the training in negotiating the responsibilities of independence set boarding school graduates on a path to prosperity—professionally, socially, and culturally.

By mid-career, 44% of graduates have already achieved top management positions, while 60% actively give to social service organizations.  It is often said that at boarding school, students “live to learn” since they spend large parts of their day engaged in learning activities. But they also “learn to live” by shouldering the responsibility that comes with greater independence.
