    Miss Porter's is probably the most well-known of those that you listed. When it comes down to financial aid, go to the websites of the school's that you want to go, click the admissions section, and there will almost definitely be a financial aid page. Case and point: http://www.porters.org/podium/default.aspx?t=10494...

    Financial aid and scholarships mean that you must have a record of near perfect grades and once you are admitted you must keep those grades at a near perfect level. I'm afraid these schools do not tend to give financial aid to "average" students, so hopefully you won't have a problem with that. You mentioned you had good grades, it just depends on how good they are. I hate to tell you this, but you will have drugs, alcohol, and sex at boarding schools as well, it's just less evident and open. If you're used to co-ed schools then a change to all-girl may be a great thing or a very bad thing for you. It all depends on what you really want. It's easy to get overwhelmed with how a school sounds and looks, but in reality, most schools are less than what they seem. If you keep your expectations lower, the chance of you being disappointed is also lower.

    As far as admissions goes, you are not locked into going to that school if you don't receive financial aid. Also, if you get accepted into more than one boarding school you can choose either one, unless there is a policy that says "by applying to this school you must go here if accepted etc", then you're free to choose. There are different levels of financial aid and you'll have to consider this, mostly it depends on whether or not your parents are below the required income bracket or not, at other schools, it's different. Like I said before, go to the websites of the schools you really want to go to and look at their financial aid information. Also look at what students and former students are saying about the school at places like:

    Boarding School Review, of course. http://www.boardingschoolreview.com/all-girls-boar...

    Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_boarding_scho...

    and finally, find out what students and alumni are saying at Yahoo! Answers. Best of luck.

    For the persons that suppose that boarding college is punishment they're incorrect. At boarding college, we're given an possibility to increase bigger relationships with friends and academics. We have journeys off-campus, and lots of boarding scholars get out greater than youngsters that don't board. And it's stimulated for boarders to hold healthful relationships with their households at dwelling, and speak mainly. The option to ship a baby to boarding college is a shrewd option, and needs a accountable scholar. If you are taking the initiative and wish to visit boarding college, you're definitely very mature, and I can guarantee you that it's a nice resolution.

    Ok, I don't think you should be finding out all this information by yourself, I think you should pick a school and call their office with your parents nearby to take notes. Or go to their websites and read the information. This is a big deal, you will be learning and being educated in these schools so you need to pick the right one, with your parents consent.

    Hope this helps! Good luck!
