Chinmaya Vidyalaya Boarding School – Myths

Myths about boarding schools

For years a boarding school was assumed to be a place where to send trouble some kids. Now students willingly pack their bags and wait for the vacations to be over to be able to get back as early as possible. People think boarding schools are meant for the rich or for troublesome children. This is a myth as the boarding schools have now become affordable and children of educated and highly placed parents are joining them.

For years a boarding school was assumed to be a place where to send trouble some kids. Now students willingly pack their bags and wait for the vacations to be over to be able to get back as early as possible. People think boarding schools are meant for the rich or for troublesome children. This is a myth as the boarding schools have now become affordable and children of educated and highly placed parents are joining them.

Some more myths about boarding schools.

You must be rich to send your child to a boarding school
Boarding schools these days have become more accessible and even middle class and salaried people are able to afford them. If you calculate the amount of money spent on school fees, bus charges, food and other incidental expenses especially tuitions, the total sum is hardly different form what boarding schools charge.

The only difference being that at home you spend day to day and month to month, whereas in a boarding school you have to pay either the whole fees in one go or in two installments

Boarding Schools are only meant for trouble some kids Of course it is right that some parents do tend to send trouble some kids to boarding schools, such children constitute a miniscule minority in most of these schools.

Kids do not enjoy or have fun at boarding schools.
Discipline and rules are definitely a part of a boarding school but you might be surprised to know that boarding schools are a lot of fun. If you talk to boarding school students or alumni today, most will tell you the same thing,  it's an environment that's conducive to making incredible friends and having fun in the process. Keep in mind that while strong academics are a key focus for boarding schools, they also strive to foster independence in students.

There is no diversity at a boarding school.
You will find students from different geographic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds in a boarding school. Also, boarding schools create more meaningful opportunities for different students to interact with one another-whether in the dorms, classrooms or playing fields - they will always be surrounded by a diverse population that they'll inevitably get to know throughout the year..

It will be hard to keep in touch with the family.
Boarding school students and their families are fortunate in that with the advances in communications, it's much easier than ever to stay connected. Most of the boarding schools these days have a weeks vacation every three months so that the children do not get homesick

Boarding School is Right Place

Is Boarding School a right Choice

Sending your child to a boarding school isn’t an easy decision as your child will have to adjust to a new environment. For some children the physical separation from family and friends is emotionally difficult. But the benefits of a boarding school far outweigh these problems. Living in a boarding school leads to learning which is more valuable than the education a child gets in a day school.

Living in a boarding school means the child is on his/her own. Of course, with plenty of support from faculty, advisors and peers. This leads to increased maturity, greater self sufficiency and superior preparation for the future. The boarding school environment encourages students to learn a little more about themselves and become a little bit more comfortable with oneself leading to a lot of personal growth and increased self confidence. The dorm mates in a boarding school become the best of friends who are remembered for life, which creates a support network.

Boarding schools have students from a wide range of geographic, racial and socio-economic backgrounds exposing the children to a wide range of individuals and cultures.

BSince the faculty in a boarding school is easily accessible throughout the day, getting academic help becomes very easy. Also relationships with faculty members and adults can better thrive in these multiple settings, creating learning and mentorship opportunities that are hard to find in other environments. Boarding school alumni are generally very enthusiastic and proud of their boarding school alma maters which creates a strong network of people and a feeling of community that lasts for life. The mission of boarding schools is not only to impart education in the classroom but to help children become better-rounded individuals.
