Lately, parents and young teens have experienced an unexpected challenge when it comes to doing well at school. With public and private schools closing their doors because of health and other issues, children of all ages now must ‘attend school’ online.

Teachers interact with students via computer screens, and many parents wonder how this will change the learning and academic progress of young teens. Will they fall behind and give up? Will they find studying alone boring and connect with negative influencers? Will even high-achieving teens lose interest in their academic success?

When these concerns for your teen’s academic progress bring you to search for other options, be sure to consider one of the best boarding schools with top accreditation that provides comprehensive academics, on campus year-round.

With Whetstone’s limited enrollment, and a low student to staff ratio, we provide personal attention and round the clock supervision that produces the best results in each young teen enrolled in our program. And because class size remains small, our teachers know the strengths, weaknesses, and potential of each and every student.

That’s why teens living here experience academic success and outstanding college and career choices year after year. In fact, our solid traditional curriculum not only teaches skills for successful college and university studies, but also for achievement as self-dependent adults in the contemporary workplace.
