Boarding at Southwestern

Southwestern Academy’s 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.


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
