BELMONT, MA--(Marketwire - March 24, 2010) -  onBoarding Schools, the first blog dedicated to boarding school admission and life, published its 500th post. onBoarding Schools began in December of 2007 and is just over two years old. onBoarding Schools is available at: www.admissionsquest.com/onboardingschools

onBoarding Schools brings a wide range of voices and experiences to covering boarding schools. 21 authors with unique voices, experiences, and perspectives, contributed onBoarding Schools' first 500 posts. 

Contributors have included boarding school students, faculty, parents, administrators, educational consultants, and those who support boarding school missions. onBoarding Schools features written content, podcasts, and videos.

Voices, media, and perspectives combine to present the richest, most in depth view of boarding school life.

Mark Sklarow, Executive Director of the Independent Educational Consultants Association contributed onBoarding Schools' 500th post with these words of celebration and thanks:

"... onBoarding Schools, hosted by AdmissionsQuest has been a wonderful eye into the world of boarding education.

"We've been able to see student videos, learn about curricular advancements, see student accomplishments academically, artistically and athletically, discover new building projects, even follow along as students headed to Washington, DC and other locations, seeing, hearing and reading about the experience through their own expression. One can learn not only of new research into curriculum and program design, but see how schools implement theory into practice in creative and dramatic ways.

"Anyone who has kept up with onBoarding Schools, as I have, has their view of boarding schools transformed. It has become THE running chronicle of what boarding education is... and where it's heading.

"It has played another role, I suspect, beyond helping the general public to a clearer view of boarding schools. It has become essential reading for those in schools: a place to learn of innovative programs, new courses, community outreach, character education initiatives, among other successes. Such sharing means that great ideas can be replicated as never before, assuring that great innovations reach more students and families. 

"onBoarding Schools has become essential reading for educational consultants."
