We consider our boarding community an extended family that learns, 玩s and grows together. All of this takes place in a supportive environment staffed by adults dedicated to the success and well-being of every student.
By living with peers from across the country and around the world, boarders develop a global perspective and an appreciation for diverse backgrounds. 作为校园的居民, they benefit from greater access to school resources, including evening study hours with teachers and more time in the gym or art studio. 在指导和支持下, they gain independence in a structured and safe community, which helps prepare them for a smooth transition to college.

Our boarding program is a small, close-knit community. With a 3:1 residential student-to-faculty ratio, dorm advisors and faculty living on campus get to know our boarders well and develop strong relationships with them. 每天晚上, the residential life team and their families join boarders for dinner, giving students the opportunity to know them as people outside of the classroom. 这是居住生活小组.
