What is a Christian Boarding School?
Christian boarding school is a program where children or teens live and sleep at the school that they attend.
Christian boarding schools (CSBs) are private schools which means they are not state funded. Most of the time, parents pay for their child’s tuition and room and board. Some schools are non-profit and fees are reduced because of donations. Most schools provide scholarships.
While not all the fees will be covered, some CBS work with you so that your insurance covers some of the cost for medical or mental health care at the school.
The majority (but not all) CBSs are a type of therapeutic boarding school that helps children with mental health or behavior issues. Check out our guide on therapeutic boarding schools and how to choose the best one for your youth to make sure you know what to look for when examining each of these schools to see if they are the right fit for your child.
The schools are Christian because they teach or were founded on Biblical principles. Students do not need to be Christian in order to attend the school.
Consider one of these schools if you are looking for a residential program that provides the support and care your child needs.
