It's great that your sibling is considering attending a boarding school! Here is a list of some of the most prestigious boarding schools in the United States, in no particular order:

1. Phillips Academy Andover (Andover, MA)

2. Phillips Exeter Academy (Exeter, NH)

3. Choate Rosemary Hall (Wallingford, CT)

4. The Lawrenceville School (Lawrenceville, NJ)

5. The Hotchkiss School (Lakeville, CT)

6. Deerfield Academy (Deerfield, MA)

7. St. Paul's School (Concord, NH)

8. The Thacher School (Ojai, CA)

9. Loomis Chaffee (Windsor, CT)

10. The Taft School (Watertown, CT)

These boarding schools often have strong academics, a wide range of extracurricular activities, and provide a good foundation for college preparation. They also have many successful alumni, which speaks to the quality of education they offer.

Keep in mind, though, that each of these schools has its own unique culture and personality. It's essential to research and possibly visit these schools to determine which one would best suit your sibling's needs and preferences. Good luck with the search!
