Begin here. Go anywhere. Make a difference.
The boarding component will play a key role in the development of our school community. Boarding on campus will be available for Upper School students beginning in September 2017. We are committed to providing a warm and comfortable environment in which students can grow to their fullest potential with the support of an experienced team of dedicated House staff.
Boarding will be available on the school campus in new, modern purpose-built quarters. We will have sufficient space for 16 Junior Residences (Grades 7 – 10) and 6 Senior Residences (Grades 11 & 12). Each Residence will have a capacity for 24 boarders. Junior Residences will have 2 students per room and Senior Residences will have 2 students per room. Residences will have access to their own common room for residents to relax and socialize, kitchen area, music practice rooms and storage rooms. A full-service laundry will also be available to students. School facilities (i.e. sports hall, aquatics center) will be available to boarders during out of school hours. Qualified nursing staff will be on duty at all times. Individual dorm rooms will be comfortable and well maintained with enough space for a bureau, bed, desk and chair for each student. All rooms will be wired for data connectivity.
Every Residence will have two faculty members – a Resident Master or Resident Mistress and a Resident Tutor. The living arrangements encourage close relationships among students and between students and their Resident counselors. We believe strongly in the notion of "in local parentis" which is Latin for "in the place of a parent." Our mandate is to create a nurturing family atmosphere and to act always as a good parent would in the best interests of the student/child.
