A place where the level of academic excellence is matched with an equal level of moral discipline.
The learning experience at boarding school is very different to the one at day school. Boarding schools have the advantage of being able to design and implement a curriculum that challenges and inspires their students.
Traditionally, extra-curricular activities are an important feature of boarding and create an even stronger sense of community among students. In addition, they help students build up their CVs with regards to a later university application and career choices.
Of course, the separation from the parents due to enrollment at a boarding school, maybe far away from home or even in a different country, is not always easy for children from the start. However, generally they adapt to staying away from home very quickly and make new friends at the school because they spent more time with their classmates than they ever would at day school. Besides, they develop more self-reliance and independence from their parents than they could at home. From the first boarding years through to the last ones, boarding can offer a sense of independence in children that helps them through life. This can all contribute to boarders leaving school with a mature attitude and feeling prepared for the demands of university life.
Boarding schools have good connections with the best universities, both state, federal & private universities, and offer mentoring programmes to support their students in choosing the right career path even after they graduate from the school. Our students all have a better opportunity to get admission in one of our pretigious university(Spiritan University Nneochi).
The friendships made in boarding houses are incredibly strong. There is a sense of family community that comes from living together, caring for and supporting each other, and enjoying free-time together. Some of the deepest-rooted friendships develop during a student’s time at boarding school.
A conducive classroom environment helps improve attention, reduce anxiety, and supports emotional and behavioural regulation of students.
Boosts student interaction with peers and teachers. Students are given frequent feedback; however, tasks require more time, effort, and investment. Allows students to apply what they've learned in other situations. Allows for the exploration of diversity.
A classroom setting that is conducive will remove charged emotions and bring serenity for increased learning among students.
