The Best boarding schools in South India constitute some of the top ranking boarding schools of India. Boarding schools are unique institutions where education is delivered to students who also happen to reside in the schools. Residential facilities of the boarding schools provide an environment for a child to learn beyond academics. Social skills, following disciplined routines and excellent interpersonal skills are some of the key advantages of being in boarding school. The boarding schools in south offer education in varied curriculums. Parents can choose from a host of different schools offering co-education, day cum boarding, only boys, only girls, programs. Edustoke as a school search platform will provide all necessary support in terms of guidance and information for parents and students looking for admissions.

Starting from helping in shortlisting schools, to aligning physical visits to see the school, Edustoke team will be a partner to parents at each step leading to a successful admission of the student. The different schools listed at the portal have been put in the list after research, verification and an absolute understanding of the fact that as parents, variety in style of teaching, board, fee and region matter a lot. As an area, southern part of the country is known for it's all around the year pleasant weather conditions and scenic landscapes. These weather conditions are favourable for students to gain not just academic knowledge but also explore different sports, extra co-curricular activities and self-study. Edustoke brings to you the best boarding schools of south India at a glance to think, understand and evaluate information in order to make the best choice for your child.

Frequently Asked Questions :

Yes you can. In fact, you must. Unlike a day school, your child would live in the boarding school and any parent would want to make sure that their child in a safe secure hygienic and comfortable place which would be instrumental in his mental and physical development. School visit is a very important part of the edustoke counselling process, and we ensure that all the parents who are being assisted by us, have their visits planned with the all permissions taken.

Annual fee range, for boarding schools, is very wide. Privately run and managed boarding can have an annual fee for junior class (grade 5 or less) as low as 1 lakh per annum and goes all way to 20 lakhs per annum. Besides annual fee, there are additional costs such as travel and other expenses, which again vary enormously from school to school. A school with a fee of 1 lakh per annum, generally, can provide only very basic boarding lodging facilities. At the other end schools charging 10Lakhs and above usually provide the best possible boarding and lodging facilities, usually multiple curriculum choices and a very wide variety of sports. However, we should be mention that annual fee is not necessarily a good indicator of school's overall quality (it is only a reasonable indicator of infrastructure provided). It is however reasonable to expect that, with good boarding and lodging ample sports facilities and good teachers a school would have to charge somewhere between 4 to 8 lakhs to meet all expenses. This answer will be not complete, if don’t mention government boarding schools. There are 550+ Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas and 20+ Sainik and Military Schools which provide education completely free of cost with almost all expenses taken care of. Entry into these schools though entrance exams.

There are several institutions that can lay claim to that title and there would be no name or list of the best which cannot be contested, and spark debate or controversy. Many ranking and awards that have come up lately (and more get added to the list each year) which publish raking across multiple categories (and categories also increase every year to accommodate more and more schools) which offer some insights, however there no neutral independent entity with no commercial relations with schools that exists to definitely pass best and worst school judgement with any objectivity.

While we all agree that some schools do a better job than others, in India, which has 1500+ boarding schools, finding the best one could across all parameters would not only be very difficult it may be impossible. So each set of parents have to find the best one which suits their needs and aspirations. Some things that a parent must keep in mind:

i) Budget:

Don’t go overboard, there is little correlation between expense and output desired.

ii) Academic output:

Ask for past three years results if you want an academic rigorous environment.

iii) Look at infra in detail and objectively:

There are certain sports and activities which appear attractive on paper but have very little value practically.

Boarding schools offer some unique developmental opportunities not available in day schools to the same extent. Boarding school students invariably turn out to be more independent, more self-confident have better social skills. Children from diverse backgrounds living together in a boarding school, are exposed to much wider set experiences which community day schools rarely have. Boarding schools have a 24X7 curriculum which gives them ability to include far more activities and events in the school calendar leading to better overall development including leadership qualities. Sports and outdoor activities are an integral part of the day, something city day schools struggle to provide.
