A boarding school is an educational institution where some or all students study and live together with their fellow students in school premises under the supervision of teachers and/or administrators. The word ‘boarding’ means ‘bed and board’ i.e. lodging/accommodation and meals. Some boarding schools also have day students/scholars who attend the school in the day and return to their homes in the evenings.


Boarding Schools are working in all the countries of the world. But their specifications and education system vary from culture to culture and country to country. Boarding Schools can be divided in many categories, below are some of the most common and popular ones.
