Question by Be My Best: Boarding School: Why not a more popular option?
Why don’t more people transfer to boarding schools?
I have a friend who is transferring to Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Virginia) soon. He is doing it for improvement at Basketball. I’m surprised more people don’t do it since OHA only has 150 students or so.
Then again, I guess not that many people are emotionally independent enough and aspiring enough at 13-17.
If you know more than what I have written here, please tell me. Thanks.

I got into the Masters School in Dobbs Ferry. I couldn’t go because the price was astronomical and they didn’t provide any financial aid. The reason why it’s not a more popular option is because of one thing and one thing only — money.
