I’m currently applying to boarding school, and I have a few questions. I’m hoping you can help me figure out who I should contact at these schools and what kind of questions I should ask. Here are a couple of specific areas I’m interested in:
Music: I’m a strong violinist and passionate about music. Should I reach out to the music director or department for information on music programs, ensembles, and opportunities for advanced musicians like me? (I already did contact some of the schools last year when I applied but I’m not quite sure if it was a good idea, but I think for some schools it was)
Math Lover: Math is another area where I excel at. I’m interested in math competitions and joining a math team. I already did math team and other math related competitions and placed and scored really good on those (Top 1% nationally on the AMC). Should I get in touch with the math teachers or a math coordinator to learn about math-related extracurriculars and academic opportunities at the school? (I also contacted some of the math teachers at some schools last year but same thing here)
I appreciate any advice or guidance you can provide on who to contact and what to ask when reaching out to these boarding schools. Thanks in advance!
