住宅生活

离家的家

每个宿舍都是一个家庭. Dorm parents work hard to build a sense of community and to make each student feel as safe, cared for, 像在自己家里一样快乐. The faculty who live in the dorms are mom and dad, teacher and advocate, all rolled into one. 他们帮助学生做家庭作业, 自习室结束后一起看最喜欢的电视节目, 或者边吃零食边聊人生.

Students are part of an extended family that works and plays together, because they are living with the dorm parents as well as with the rest of the faculty who live on campus with their spouses and children.

一个理想的位置

日博体育在线学校在巴克斯县, PA enables us to visit many of the attractions of the northeast while enjoying the quiet, safety, 还有一个140英亩的乡村校园. We're an hour from Philadelphia and the New Jersey beaches and an hour and a half from New York City and the Pocono Mountains. Our immediate area boasts wonderful outdoor activity options as well as the malls and multiplexes students love just a short van ride away.

Dorm Life

Students thrive in the structure that boarding life provides. 每晚学习大厅, activities, and lights out to ensure a good night's sleep all contribute to an environment where students can develop the discipline and the habits that lead to long term success. The most significant part of the boarding experience for students is the lifelong friendships they form with one another. 他们共同度过的时光, 他们一起成长,一起成长, 是他们会永远珍惜的东西吗.

日博体育在线有三个宿舍. 每个都有一个完整的厨房, 无线互联网接入, 洗衣设施, and plenty of space for boarders to work and to enjoy their free time. For girls, the Holmquist House dormitory has 28 beds; Appledore, a smaller dormitory has five beds. Walter Lamb Hall是一间男生宿舍,有41个床位. 半数以上的教员住在校园里. 所有的老师, 尤其是宿舍的父母, are there for students at every turn—to offer extra help with that history paper, 在外面扔个棒球, 花一个下午的时间烤饼干, 或者开车带孩子去看电影, 当地苹果园, 甚至去纽约待一天.

 

Dining

When 日博体育app was founded, students and teachers had their meals together. Tables are still shared by boarding and day students, faculty, and their families in the Herbert S. Boyd Dining Hall. 工作人员是四位出色的厨师, the dining hall offers a full breakfast every weekday—eggs made to order, pancakes, 燕麦片——还有周末更丰盛的早午餐. 午餐和晚餐包括自制的汤, a full salad bar, and a variety of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. Fruit, snacks, and hot and cold drinks are available throughout the day. If there’s something students would like to see on the menu, they can simply ask the chefs. 查看示例菜单.

 

Weekends

Weekends are a time for boarding and day students to form connections with one another and with the faculty, 体验新事物, 并留下永久的记忆. 每个人都能得到一些东西, including trips to nearby New York City or Philadelphia, hikes, 晚上篝火, 或者是一个班级的学习小组. Community weekends (for boarders only) are held once a trimester with special events. 

 

 

寄宿生键(B2)

每周三晚餐和自习室之间, all boarders have a mandatory program called Boarders Bonding (B²). Students bond with their dormmates and the entire boarding community through games, discussions, and events. Proctors and social chairs help to guide the programming. 

Dress Code

在日博体育在线社区的紧密组织中, students have the freedom to express themselves in many ways. 和其他社区一样, there is an inherent responsibility within this right of expression to be conscious of and respect others. 日博体育在线没有着装规定. We expect each student to be responsible regarding their selection of clothing at school, 在学校的功能, 还有在餐厅吃饭.

Health

A Nurse Practitioner is at school from 8:00am – 3:30pm on weekdays and a second nurse is on duty from 5:30 – 7:00pm Monday - Friday. Our expanded health facilities provide office space for our nurses, 一个考场, and six separate spaces for isolation and/or quarantine.
