Boarding Life:
Dormitory life is a rich blend of studying, relaxing, sleeping, and enjoying with friends and prefects. In each dorm, senior prefects help administer rules and serve as role models for other students. Faculty members are also an integral part of dorm life, as most live in apartments attached to the dormitories.

During the course of four years students and faculty become close and develop friendships that last well beyond teenage years.

While every dorm room is furnished with a bed, desk, closet, dresser, and direct connection to the Internet, students quickly decorate their rooms to reflect their own personalities and preferences. Each student creates his or her own little haven.

Dormitories are arranged by grade and gender for ninth, tenth, and eleventh graders. Due to the various leadership roles that seniors hold, they are housed across campus in the various dormitories.
