ADHD and Boarding School
You may be wondering, “Is boarding school the right path for my child with ADHD?” There are plenty of factors to consider when it comes to boarding schools that offer ADHD support. That’s why we’re here to address any and all of your concerns and help you make the right boarding school decision for your child!
Studies have shown that roughly two-thirds of children with ADHD may be more susceptible to additional learning or mental health disorders, such as increased anxiety. Rightfully, this may raise some concerns for you about sending your child to a boarding school. Will there be adequate support? This is a completely valid question that many boarding schools with ADHD support can address. With programs designed to meet the needs of students with learning differences, you can trust that the trained faculty and staff will look out for your child and provide the professional support and reassurance they may need.
Having a solid structure is another key component you may be looking for in your student’s boarding school. A routine can be beneficial for children with ADHD. Luckily, whether your child is a daytime student or decides to board in the dorms, boarding schools with ADHD support can provide an appropriate level of structure full of classes and extracurricular activities.
Many boarding schools go the extra mile to ensure that your student with learning differences graduates with the tools they need to succeed in college and beyond. With a boarding school like Stuart Hall, your child will have access to a variety of services and activities that offer additional assistance when needed.
The Stuart Hall Difference
At Stuart Hall, we understand that each student has unique needs when it comes to learning. Every student is different, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to education. We’ve dedicated ourselves to creating and educating our staff on diverse and adaptable teaching methods to ensure all students get the highest quality of education.
Attending 100-student classes versus 10-student classes can make a world of difference for students diagnosed with ADHD. Stuart Hall specializes in small class sizes staffed with trained faculty to make sure your student receives a solid academic foundation through individualized attention. With an average class size of 15 or fewer students, teachers can establish a comfortable environment where students can tackle new challenges in a supportive setting.
A boarding school that offers a specialized program to ensure every student is known and cared for? Sign us up! Our advisory program assigns each student in grades 8-12 a faculty member who will be their advisor and parental point of contact. Students meet with their advisors weekly to touch base and monitor their academic, social, and emotional well-being.
Learning Support Services
Let’s circle back to the “one-size-fits-all” idea of education. We’ve already established there is no golden standard for teaching methods, so how does Stuart Hall address the many learning styles of our students? With a three-tiered approach that offers personalized support for every student. Each level provides more in-depth strategies to aid students through their education. Our Tier 3 level, in particular, serves students diagnosed with learning disabilities, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and more.
Engaging Extracurricular Activities
In addition to the engaging, personalized classroom setting, students at Stuart Hall have the opportunity to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities. A regular schedule full of meetings, sports games, practices, and more can establish a system to keep students with ADHD focused.
