Our five-day boarding students get to develop independence and experience dorm life before college. Also, both students and families gain back valuable time during the week without the daily commute to and from APH and after-school practices. Five-day boarding also provides the opportunity for students from a further distance to experience all Penguin Hall has to offer without the stress of daily transportation.
The boarding program provides a structured environment for students while instilling personal responsibility. Each evening there are staff-supervised study hours and a nightly curfew. During free time, boarders have access to many campus facilities. Each day, they enjoy breakfasts and lunches, and then a family-style dinner run by members of the boarding faculty. Planned group activities allow students to bond with their boarding peers.
Boarding at APH also helps students enjoy more fully the extracurricular life of the school. Perhaps most significant, it challenges student residents to grow and thrive as productive, positive members of a special family within the Penguin Hall community.
The additional tuition for boarding students is $9850. We encourage those who are seriously considering this new opportunity to contact us as soon as possible.
