Boarding parent testimonial

"5 day boarding at Rockwell College offered our son great structure and consistency. Living at the school simplifies the weekday routine, saves commuting time, and fosters independence. Rockwell has very clear expectations and values. The teachers support and encourage students. We are happy that we chose Rockwell and would recommend it to other families considering boarding school.” PK, parent.
