Academic Support

Study Hall and Quiet Hours
One way that the boarding program supports the academic welfare of the student is with a structured two-hour study hall each evening. Students can meet with tutors, engage in personal study in the community quiet areas, or in their own rooms. A quieter atmosphere is also encouraged in the evenings to offer a better environment for additional work.

Subject Specific Study Halls
Boarding students enjoy the opportunity to attend subject-specific study halls throughout the week to allow them to receive special assistance. Certified teachers and professionals in subject areas are available to provide boarding students with access to extra help.

Academic Assistance
The boarding care program actively communicates with teachers about dorm students' academic progress. Regular communication with teachers allows us to identify students who would benefit from extra assistance that week, either with extra study time or with arranged meetings with their teachers.

Essential Services

Food Service
Dorm students enjoy a full meal plan each weekday as well as a modified weekend meal-plan to accommodate various weekend activities and schedules. Students are also provided with an evening snack plan on weeknights that may include snacks from the cafeteria, the community and sometimes include homemade treats from the dorm staff themselves.

Health Services
There are two fully-qualified nurses that serve the boarding students throughout the weekdays. A day nurse is available from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., while a boarding nurse resides from 4:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. They are available to administer student medications and care for the immediate medical needs of each student. The boarding nurse is available to keep students in the infirmary when they are sick or to accompany students to local clinics and hospitals for acute illnesses and injuries.

Campus Services Accessibility
Dorm students experience all of the conveniences of living on campus with all of the access that it provides. They have opportunities to access supervised fitness center and gym times. Students can enjoy field times for practicing sports or just a leisurely game with friends. They also have the opportunity to access the school facility when supervised and can stay after school to meet with teachers when needed.

The campus is patrolled by 24-hour security personnel and digital surveillance systems on the grounds and in the dormitories for student safety. More importantly, the dorm staff lives in the dormitory building and are present and available to care for the children's well-being.
