BOARDING AT SOUTHWESTERN

Our campus dormitories offer a safe and fully supportive environment, supervised by resident counselors. These dorm parents live in adjacent apartments, and are responsible for the well-being of each student. Parents and students are given a list of dorm needs before the beginning of a school term.

Dormitories
Both Southwestern Academy campuses offer:

  • Separate girls’ and boys’ dormitories with twin beds, desks,
    chairs, dressers or shelves, and closet areas
  • Television lounge and VCR or DVD player
  • T-1 Internet connectivity and e-mail account
  • Laundry facilities

Food Service
Our kitchens offer students a delicious, healthy diet. The menus are professionally planned with variety and nutritional balance in mind, and
change on a regular cycle. Teachers and staff members eat family-style
with the students. Our dining program includes:

  • Buffet-style, hot cooked breakfasts
  • Family-style lunches and dinners
  • Daily salad and soup bars
  • Accommodation for special diets (such as vegetarian and vegan)
  • Student snack bars open in the afternoons and evenings
