Switching from day student to boarding student
DS is going in to 10th grade and is currently a day student because we live SO CLOSE to his school. He is (and has been) pushing hard to board. Back when he was applying, we said we would revisit it for 11th or 12th grade. We still about 6-8 months before we need to decide for 11th grade. Thoughts? Will it be hard to adjust to dorm life midway through? Will it be easier to focus on studying? His friendships are close now. Will they be even closer? Is there more or less opportunity for trouble? (He is a very good kid but I learned long ago to never say never.) We are trying to figure out the intangible cost/benefit. And, is it ridiculous to even consider it given that we live very close to campus?
