Dormitory Life

Students live in dormitories that are divided by both gender and age group. Most students are assigned roommates in order to make social adjustments easier, but there are also a limited number of single rooms available upon request. A request for a single room is not guaranteed, however, since their number is limited and special needs may take priority.

Dormitories are closely monitored by faculty who also reside there. In the evenings, supervised quiet hours are conducive to reading and study. Since our class day starts early with breakfast beginning at 8:00 a.m., students are asked to go to bed on school nights according to the following schedule: younger students at 10:30 p.m. and older students at 11:00 p.m.. Dormitory rooms are made neat each day by residents under the supervision of faculty, because our philosophy maintains that a tidy and organized study environment is essential to academic success. Dormitory parties and other social gatherings may occur throughout the summer to build dorm unity and morale among students learning the skills of community life.

All rooms have basic furnishings including beds, desks, bureaus, chairs, overhead light and closet. Students may bring a small dorm-style refrigerator and a window fan, but televisions and air conditioners are not permitted. Students can also access communication services such as Skype and Facetime from their dorm rooms with their device.

Day students may also be assigned a dorm room that they can use for study purposes and for an occasional overnight stay.
