All-dorm Meeting

Every week, the entire dormitory gathers after dinner to share information, address dormitory issues, and promote elements of character education and community membership.

The meetings deal with serious issues as well as aspects of safety, health, personal responsibility, and community needs. The residential faculty also carry out a series of formal programs addressing community responsibility, dorm values, conflict resolution, time and stress management, and personal wellness and safety.

All-dorm Study

To ensure that the students have enough time to study and to rest, the dormitory's curfew is 11pm during the week and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays. We also have study hours between 8-11pm Sunday through Thursday.

All-dorm Fun

One of the best parts of boarding life is the diverse activities that are organized each month.  There are also a variety of school-wide activities like dances, which are open to all high school students.
