“I really like the whole big sister concept, and how Core’s job is to really be a support system within the dorm.” —Trinity
Upper School Boarding
“Being in such a supportive, metaphysically grounded, loving environment is the absolute perfect place for a teenager to be!” —current Upper School parent
Our Upper School dorms house students in grades 9–12 and provide a family environment within each hall. Students live with their hall brothers or sisters and a dedicated resident counselor for an entire year, making it easy to develop strong relationships with peers and establish a close connection with an adult adviser and advocate who knows each student well.
A Typical Day in the Upper School Dorm
A typical school day includes Bible Lesson Study, meals in the school’s dining room, school-day classes, sports or time outdoors, study hall, time with friends, and Wednesday evening church. Weekends are a time for relaxation, planned activities, time with friends, homework, and Sunday School in the morning.
“I’m immensely grateful for the opportunities to practice leadership in the Boys’ Dorm. It has been both a way of learning and a way of having fun—and helping others to have fun, too—which has been an incredible experience.” —Zachery
