The Small Boarding School Association invites applicable schools (full accredited academic program, non-profit status, and under 200 boarding students) and consultants to become an associate member of our organization. This is particularly attractive for schools and consultants who are not able to join us for our annual conference (membership is included in conference fee.) Memberships can begin at any time, but must be renewed yearly, on or before our spring conference. In other words, membership should be renewed every March/April.

Eligible schools, whether totally boarding or day/boarding, must be designed for students to complete a full academic year at the school and have a boarding program enrollment limited to near or below 200 students. Schools with programs where enrollment is designed for partial, transitional, or temporary instruction are ineligible. The school must be accredited or in process of formal accreditation by a state, regional, or national accrediting agency and must hold not-for-profit status. Educational Consultants who share an interest in the unique issues of small boarding schools are also encouraged to be members.

For additional information, or for questions, please contact us.


Remember, schools must qualify and be eligible for small boarding school status.‚Äč​
