Helping a Student Who Sought Academic Rigor

A young man, 15, started looking for a boarding school for his junior and senior years. He had everything going for him – stellar resume, grades, sports, and personality. The conversation focused on just how much academic pressure he was willing to take on. He was adamant he wanted to push himself, and was given several offers of admission to very competitive boarding schools. In the end, he chose the one that seemed to be the best fit for him and is now doing extremely well.
