BOARDING SCHOOL: LIVING LIKE FAMILY

Welcome to your home away from home

Boarding school students at St. John’s Northwestern live in secure residence halls separated by gender and academy. Living and learning with students from diverse backgrounds promotes understanding and builds strong bonds.

Choose from two boarding options

Our boarding school options offer flexibility to fit your family.

  • 7-day boarding: Spend the majority of the academic year on campus except for holiday breaks and open weekends. Local homestays are available for international students.
  •  5-day boarding: Return home for the majority of weekends, except during designated campus event weekends.

Enjoy your space

Current policy in light of COVID-19 is to house all boarding students in single rooms. Residence hall rooms include wireless internet connections and space for study. Smartphones are permitted, as well as computers that comply with our IT standards. Laundry service is available. Both Military Academy cadets and Leadership Academy students are expected to maintain their rooms to school standards. Give yourself the space to succeed!
