Top 100 Boarding Schools in Gauteng & South Africa

This article contains information on the top 100 list of Boarding Schools in Gauteng and South Africa as a whole and their benefits.

Boarding Schools

In the past, it was the dream of every parent to send their wards to a boarding school, as it was seen as the best avenue for scholars to get first hand training beyond academics. This was indeed correct because most students in boarding schools stood out from their counterparts who were day students.

Boarding school is however, an institution where students live within the school premises while being given formal instruction. Parents send their wards to boarding schools for many reasons. They choose them either to give their children a better academic education or because they want their children to learn to live independently.

Prior to this time, boarding schools were known to have many benefits which included

1. Safer Environment for Learning

Boarding school has always been known to be a place with adequate security and strict regulations to ensure that negative influences are gotten rid of to protect scholars from harm. Busy parents who do not have time for their kids see this as a reason to send their children to boarding schools.

2. Character Development

Boarding school graduates are known to carry themselves with integrity and dignity. This is because most, if not all boarding schools lay much emphasis on instilling morals and discipline in the students’ inorder for them to become responsible citizens.

3. Distraction-free Environment

Most boarding schools, if not all, do not allow the use of electronic gadgets like phones, personal laptops, etc. This is to minimize the level of distractions and in turn encourage full concentration to study.

4. Self-reliance

Most students who pass through boarding schools are believed to be self-reliant and independent, organized and always alert since there is no parent to depend on. This training also helps them when they graduate.

Despite these cogent reasons, the terrifying things that go on in the modern day boarding school have discouraged a lot of parents from sending their children into the boarding house. However, there are still good boarding schools out there. For this reason, this article contains a list of prestigious boarding schools in GAUTENG, South Africa.
