The Boarding Experience


The Walnut Hill Residential Life Program offers boarding students a safe, supportive community on our Natick campus. Our eight dormitories range in size from 15 to 50 students and offer single, double, or triple rooms, which are assigned based on a student’s length of time at the School, his or her grade level, and room availability. Trained Dorm Parents supervise the dorms and serve as adult role models who are there to celebrate student achievements and assist with any challenges that arise. Our culturally diverse student population makes life in the dorms a rich and unique experience for all of our students, and the ability to live and learn together on campus offers our boarding students the chance to grow in their independence and develop meaningful and lasting friendships.
