The Bolles School, Jacksonville:
The Bolles School is a private college preparatory school with an international reputation for excellence. Located in Jacksonville in Duval County, Florida, the school enrolls more than 1,700 boarding and day students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 on four campuses, Ponte Vedra, Whitehurst, Bartram and San Jose.

Boarding Program (Grades 7-12)
For our boarding students, Bolles is a second home. With boarders in grades 7-12 from more than 25 countries, the program offers diversity and a sense of family that enhances the Bolles experience. 

Female boarding students live on the Bartram Campus, and male boarders on the San Jose Campus. Each group has a supervisor, several faculty members and their families living on campus with them.

Boarding students get the guidance and discipline they would at home, as well as familial intimacy. The San Jose Campus features comfortable residence halls for 80 male students. The Bartram Campus is home to approximately 50 female boarders, nestled in a picturesque wooded setting along Pottsburg Creek.

For students in grades 7-9, the boarding program includes structured study time, room inspection and daily academic counseling. This prepares them for more independent living in grades 10-12.

Students immersed in this culturally diverse environment learn self-discipline, respect for others, and cooperation. In addition to the excellent recreational facilities for boarding students on both campuses, students also take part in organized off-campus activities that provide entertainment and enrichment.
