About WBSA

Western Boarding Schools Association is a consortium of the strongest boarding schools located in the western regions of United States and Canada.

Member schools are accredited, non-profit and independent elementary, middle and/or secondary boarding schools with academic college preparatory programs in the following US states and Canadian provinces: Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Idaho, Hawaii, Utah, Arizona, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta. 

WBSA member schools partner together to promote the incredible benefits of western boarding through a shared website, social media, boarding school panels and fairs. 

Members of WBSA gather together for the annual spring conference, typically held in late April or early May. This opportunity for professional development focuses on trends and best practices within both boarding and university level admission departments.
