5 Reasons to Consider a Coed Boarding School

Many families have discovered that there are all different types of Boarding Schools in the United States - coed, all boys or all girls, junior boarding for middle school students, schools just for grades 9-12, and even schools that offer a post-graduate year of study.  

Perkiomen School is a coed school, with girls and boys dorms and time to socialize just like every other public or private coed middle and high school.  

So why consider a coed boarding experience?

1. The 360-degree experience of living in a residential community with a supportive group of adults including dorm parents, advisors, faculty, and staff - all focused on students' success.

2. The ability to make life-long friends with people from all over the world.

3. The opportunity to pursue leadership opportunities in abundance.

4. The chance to try all kinds of fascinating classes and extra-curriculars.

5. The extraordinary gift of learning resilience, independence, and self-advocacy in middle and high school.
