Junior Boarding Schools

There are 14 junior boarding schools located throughout the United States and Canada.
Junior boarding schools offer boarding opportunities for students grades 8 or lower.
Note that some boarding schools focus exclusively on the junior boarding experience (and offer only junior boarding grades), while other schools offer both junior and college-prep boarding grades.
