Are boarding schools really like Hogwarts or Zoey 101?

Spoiler alert: boarding schools are nothing like you see on TV (and that’s a good thing).

While the campuses may be just as beautiful, there’s no wizarding curricula or throngs of contemptuous, gossipy teens. Instead, boarding school is like one big family. You’ll have the opportunity to take on leadership roles, try new things, live with your best friends and find out what you’re passionate about.
