boarding schools

We are seriously contemplating boarding school for our 15 year old son. Does anyone have any experience with boarding schools. What ones were great? what ones to stay away from.  We live in NJ, and I would prefer him to be no more than a 5 hour drive away.  Thanks for your help.


Only know this one by reputation. . . .

I don’t have personal experience with boarding schools, but there’s a directory of boarding schools for kids with ADHD and/or learning disabilities on’s directory:

We went to the family weekend at SOAR a couple years ago and I was beyond impressed. It may be a longer drive than the 5 hours, but look into it. They have an amazing program.

I met a mom whose child went to The Greenwood School in Vermont and said it was amazing how they helped her son.
