As a community committed to supporting the whole child, the Residential Life program is centered around the students’ continued development.
Our program provides room for continued practice and refinement; giving students the freedom to pursue individual passions and interests, building in both athletics and STEAM related programming. Our optional 4th through 8th grade communal boarding program welcomes families to engage with their students in the evening, while also giving our students the opportunity to exhibit leadership and growth through independent decision making and “Habits of Mind” development.
We encourage and prefer parents to remain closely connected to their child throughout the boarding experience.
Our residential life student curriculum is anchored by an advisory program that allows all students to build strong relationships with a range of mentors. Advisors are recent college graduates, faculty, and administrators who consistently meet with students in small groups to discuss age appropriate topics that can enhance students' likelihood of academic and social success.
Boarding students enjoy a balanced experience that offers time for unstructured free-play and structured academic, athletic, and artistic enrichment. Our secure 80 acre campus provides all boarding students with a collegiate environment that provides extended access to athletic, artistic, academic, and creative resources. Over their 4th-8th grade experience residential students are given increased choice, providing the essential opportunity to develop organizational habits that will allow them to succeed in less structured high school and college environments.
