Boarding Schools cooperate with WWGSA for off-campus housing needs when the campus is closed for long weekends, holidays and the summer. The cooperation ensures peace-of-mind for the staff, agencies and families when students are not able to reside on their boarding campuses.

  • Pre-screened families for convenience and peace-of-mind placements
  • Direct contact with local representatives for prompt help with placements
  • Cooperation with student coordinators to expedite seasonal off-campus placements
  • Emergency placements from 1 day up to 3 weeks. (Generally within hours of call).
  • Sharing the joys of the holidays with students, often for the first time
  • Outings and family activities such as movie night, bowling, family gatherings for holidays and birthdays
  • Interaction with other children and adults further enhances the “away from home” experience
  • Lasting bonds with families in off-campus settings

Parents who have placed their children in schools without local support contact WWGSA for services such as:

  •  Long weekend breaks from school, requiring off-campus housing options
  •  They are unfamiliar with where their child wishes to spend their vacation (i.e. not comfortable signing a permission slip for their child to stay with a “friend” in a big city like New York)
  •  Their child needs a host relocation, but has no local representation to assist them
  •  Local mediation services for the family if their child faces academic or disciplinary challenges in school
  •  Their child faces unforeseen illness and must leave campus, but may return when healed (e.g. flu, broken bones, psychological evaluations not requiring hospitalization, but which require off-campus living until resolved.
