​About TABS

The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS) leads a domestic and international effort to promote awareness and understanding of boarding schools. Our member boarding schools educate and cultivate students ages 8 – 16 in middle schools and high schools across the US and Canada to help find success in college and in life. TABS is your best resource for learning more about the different types of boarding schools across North America, as well as the process of enrolling in boarding school and taking the first steps in finding the right school for you.

Learn about a day in the life of a boarding school student, explore our schools to find the best fit for you, and visit our frequently asked questions to further familiarize yourself with what makes boarding school a life-changing opportunity.

If you are looking for more academic challenges, better athletic and artistic opportunities, a tight-knit community, and the chance to make friends from around the world, boarding school just might be what you are searching for.

We’re here to help. Let’s go!
