How to make a difficult decision

I was not doing well in school. During my freshman and sophomore years, my grades were low, reflecting my lack of care for my schoolwork and classes. By the end of sophomore year, I knew I had to make a change, because my current school environment just wasn’t working for me. But how do you make a decision that could change your life forever?

I had a few options, including another public high school nearby and a private boarding school really far away. I had the whole summer, which I spent at a camp for Christian Scientists, to decide where I would be for my junior and senior years.
