The American Boychoir School's exceptional musical training teaches focus, discipline and responsibility and builds confidence through incredible accomplishment. The academics are creative, project based and exciting thanks to several fabulous new hires and a real team approach. As a parent whose son joined in 4th grade, it has been an incredibly exciting and rewarding experience for our son and for our entire family. I can't imagine a better opportunity and the excitement of the travel seems to be the icing on the cake, with wonderful enrichment outings.

One reviewer said the academics are lackluster. As a parent of a boy who graduated last year I am happy to say he's begun 9th grade with multiple honors courses and a high grade point average, as well as having achieved high scores in the SSAT. All that aside, though, there is no other school that offers middle school boys a life-changing experience like ABS. My son's middle school years will very likely be the ones he remembers most fondly from his youth having the USA as well as internationally in Korea and France, being the artists in residence for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, singing and acting in a motion picture with stars like Dustin Hoffman, and coming away with a level of study discipline, musical excellence and brotherhood that I'd never dreamed possible. Amazing experience in every way. Wouldn't trade it for anything and highly recommend it to boys who love music.

My son loves going to this school. The music is unbelievably good, and he can't get enough of it. The academics are perfect for him, with small class sizes and lots of individual attention. I love that he is learning to be self-confident and poised when talking with adults.

This school provides a unique opportunity for your son to have an outstanding musical education combined with project-based academics. The boys participate in a professional boychoir which lays the groundwork for character education that focuses on strengthening their attentional skills, poise, perseverance, flexibility, and compassion. These boys become brothers, and together they achieve great things.

good musicianship training, lackluster academics, culture of favortism and bullying (with pressure to prevent pedophia, not much attention is paid to how kids treat each other. More introverted kids are not allowed to be alone or to have a private moment with teachers or staff.

When applying to this school I suggest you ask the following questions: are you accredited? how much money is in the endowments? are your teachers certified? what is the average tenure of your teachers?

I was graduated from the Columbus Boychoir School, now American Boychoir, back in 1969. Where else could a boy perform on stage with Leonard Bernstein, Eugene Ormandy, perform at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires or the opening season of the New York Metropolitan Opera at the Lincoln Center? We were given a lot of responsibilities and quickly learned discipline and working as a team. The teachers and staff were very good. Simply fabulous!

We have a son, aged 10 who started last year at the American Boychoir School. This is a wonderful place for any musical boy to be! Previous to coming here our son was at a public elementary school and quite unhappy. We are from a small community which was lacking in musical endeavors. We always knew our son was musical. My wife's sister taught him to play the piano at age four and he was always singing around the house. We knew that in order for our son to be fully happy he needed to be immersed in music, both at home AND at school. Two years ago The American Boychoir came on a tour and performed at a school a few towns over. WE took our son and he was enthralled! They auditioned him on the spot and we never looked back!
