A boarding school is a residential private school. The students actually live on campus in dormitories or resident houses with adults from the school. The dormitories are supervised by these members of the school's staff, who are usually teachers or coaches, in addition to being dorm parents. Boarding school students follow a highly structured day in which classes, meals, athletics, study times, activities and free time are predetermined for them. Residence life is a unique component of the boarding school experience. Being away from home and learning to cope gives a child confidence and independence. Boarding schools are residential schools; however, not all residential schools are "classic" boarding schools. Other forms of residential schools include Therapeutic boarding schools, specialist schools, traveling boarding schools, and more.
