Abuse in Boarding Schools

Connecticut is home to a number of boarding schools, many of which are nationally known. Unfortunately, some of these schools have done a better job of protecting their name and reputations than protecting students.

At Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney in Bridgeport, Connecticut, our lawyers represent the victims of child sexual abuse. We have successfully held boarding schools and other educational institutions accountable when they failed to protect children in their care. If your child was abused by a teacher, coach, staff member or volunteer while attending a private or boarding school in Connecticut, call us at 203-212-9075 for a free initial consultation. Even if the abuse occurred years ago, your child may be entitled to compensation.

Holding Boarding Schools Responsible

When you place your child in a boarding school, you place a high level of trust in the institution to protect your child from harm. You are not there to be watchful for signs of inappropriate contacts between your child and teachers, coaches and others at the school.

Staff members in boarding schools have greater access to children outside of the classroom than teachers in a public school. Sexual predators may abuse dozens of children over a long period of time, while protected behind the ivied walls of a respected institution. These schools can be held accountable when they:

  • Fail to report suspected incidents of child sexual abuse
  • Fail to conduct appropriate background checks on teachers and staff
  • Fail to follow the school’s own policies to prevent child sexual abuse

Our civil justice system can provide a strong financial motivation to these institutions to stop child sexual abuse. It can also provide compensation for the victims.
