Student Ambassadors At Boarding Schools
- There are 10 boarding schools offering student ambassadors as an extracurricular activity.
The White Mountain School Photo - All students complete an independent project through our LASR program. LASR stands for Leadership, Arts, Service, and Research. These general categories demonstrate the range of projects that students choose to undertake. This program is our way of saying that passion matters, and that we know each and every student has a spark that we want to help focus.
Amerigo Napa Valley Justin-Siena High School Photo - Amerigo Napa Valley partners with Justin-Siena High School to provide boarding students with a premier university-preparatory education.
The Taft School Photo - More than a century has passed since Mr. Taft founded our school. While the world and the school have changed dramatically, his fundamental values endure: work hard, without regard for public acclaim; develop all your talents: academic, artistic, and athletic; and most importantly, give of yourself to others.
St. Timothy's School Photo - The Commons is equal parts living room and dining room. The newest building on campus, the Commons is a gathering space that houses the dining hall and the new Redlands Cafe.
The Rectory School Photo - Our girls are competitors in soccer, softball, cross-country, fencing, basketball, ice hockey, lacrosse, equestrian, tennis, and golf.
Chaminade College Preparatory School Photo - Chaminade is located 20 minutes outside of Downtown St. Louis in the lovely, green neighborhood of Creve Coeur. Our 55 acre campus is fun and lively throughout the school year and a wonderful place not only to study and play but also to become part of the family.

Social media is an essential part of a boarding school's marketing strategy
Parents considering schools should read New York Times columnist Frank Bruni's book about college admissions entitled Where You Go Is Not Who You Will Be: An Antidote to the College Admissions Mania. Much of what he says applies in the private K-12 world.
