Every year after Labor Day, the admission office starts to get busy with families interested in having their sons or daughters attend boarding school. Oftentimes we receive calls or emails from parents wondering about the admission process, what their child should wear when he or she visits, and what the interview will be like, and we are, of course, happy to help parents with these questions.
Leadership is a popular subject. We read about it through the lens of business and commerce, sports, medicine, and lately most prominently in politics. But what makes a leader? When we consider this question in the context of education, we sometimes tend to think about our educators and administration, but some of the biggest leaders are the students in the classroom. If we want to instill future leadership, the way to do that is through our students and children.
