Student Life
Residential Life

Welcome Home

Our dorms are playrooms and study nooks, a place for impromptu dance parties and board games, and spaces to sleep-in and hang out. Most of all, our dorms are home to approximately 90 boarding students, as well as 20 residential life faculty, their families and pets.
Students who live on campus walk away with a deeper, around-the-clock experience of our school. Boarders have additional opportunities to get homework help or support from teachers and advisors who live on campus, as well as easy access to the library, art and dance studios, and music rehearsal rooms on evenings and weekends.
Boarding students have additional leadership opportunities, from serving as head or a member of Board Life, serving on Dorm Board, to becoming elected as Dorm Leader. Boarding students can sign up for weekly weekend trips to Harvard Square, the mall, and movie theaters, or for special activities like canoeing and kayaking at Cochituate Lake, Boston Celtics games, theatre performances, and trips to local amusement parks. Tickets are provided by the school for all trips.

Two sets of live-in dorm parents, dorm associates, and dorm leaders provide care and leadership in each dorm. There is also a rotating dorm associate who spends time supporting each dorm throughout the school year. In addition, we have the assistant head of school, the dean of student life, the school counselor, and other staff and faculty members who live on campus to provide support for our students. Under their guidance, our students build important life skills, gaining self-confidence and autonomy within a supportive structure. We have lots of family-like conversations about things like managing time wisely, the importance of pitching in and helping out, and making good choices.

Our boarding students know first hand what it means to a part of the CSW family.

'This is My Home'

    • '<br>”CSW

      ”CSW is more than a school to me. This is my home. When I first got here, I didn’t really know anyone, but that changed after All Boarders Weekend, when, literally, we didn’t have a moment to get away from each other. But, that’s how we became so close. Everyone in my dorm is a part of my family. Actually, I think of all the boarders as family.”
