Growth Through Boarding at TCIS

With the family-like atmosphere and academic support structure, there are unique opportunities available to students in the Boarding Care Program. Children learn essential life skills, which leads to students fulfilling their academic potential, social well-being, and college readiness. Our dorm alumni fondly recall their boarding experience as some of the most meaningful times of their youth.

TCIS offers differentiated, inclusive education to children of all ages, and TCIS holds a special advantage for children who grow through our academic programs year after year.
