We live a an area that is geographically isolated and are interested in exploring the New England private schools with solid academics, as well as a solid boys soccer program(preferably a coed school). Are there any parents or experienced members who can share any information with the NE Prep schools? And I realize this could be a loaded question, but I’m hoping for some brave responders! General impressions, experience, reputation, types of students that attend… (If you are a parent at one of these schools, please don’t be offended- it’s just a view point.)
Background: We live many states away, we have a daughter in college in MA and son spent a good bit of time there this summer attending college clinics- and enough time to appreciate how strong the soccer is in the E/NE and how much he likes the area. He is currently a 10th grade student, plays varsity at HS and an ECNL team. He is a solid player with strong academics, interested in top academic D3 schools (mostly NESCAC) and possibly 2-3 lower level D1 schools. He has no intention on going pro or playing in the MLS. Not knowing how things could turn out, solid academics is first priority followed by quality coaches, opportunities, and exposure to top D3 schools.
If there is a school not on the list, feel free to include. These I found by combing thru NESJ.
