The EF Academy International Boarding School is a well kept secret located on a beautiful modern campus in Thornwood, NY (Westchester County). It also has campuses around the world (our other EF favorite campus is in Oxford England) and once you gain admission into one you can exchange into the others for a more international boarding school experience. One of the few private schools in the United States where you can earn and International Baccalaureate (IB) and a High School Diploma. The school draws top students from over 75 countries (Asia, Europe, Africa, South America and Russia) and over 45 languages are spoken on campus. The spring break trips and summer opportunities to explore the world are tremendous. For example, there is an amazing spring break trip to Iceland for students to travel to Iceland for the Global Student Leaders Summit among other opportunities. The student teacher ratio is what you would expect from any private school and the teachers are well trained by some of the best schools in the world. Be warned that the classwork is extremely rigorous for it utilizes the Cambridge IGCSE curriculum as its standard, which is equivalent to college level work in the United States. An undisciplined student will NOT do well here due to the heavy courseload requirements. The teachers understand this and go beyond the call of duty and offer afterschool review sessions to help students stay on track. Dorm rooms are modern and offer twin and triple accommodations. The school works hard to match roommates of a similar disposition but entirely different culture. For example, a quiet American student would be matched with a quiet student from Asia, Russia or Europe, not another American. Overall, the administration is very responsive to student needs and any parental concerns. There is a parent portal to monitor a student’s work progress daily and direct contact with the teachers as needed.
