Residential Life

Our dorms are gathering areas and study nooks. They are places 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.

Two sets of live-in dorm parents, and student dorm leaders provide care and leadership in each dorm. In addition, there are staff and faculty members who live on campus in separate residences, who also provide support for our students. 
 
Boarding Perks
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.

Under the guidance of adult dorm parents, CSW students build important life skills, gaining self-confidence and autonomy within a supportive structure. They regularly engage in conversation about things like managing time wisely, the importance of pitching in and helping out, and making good choices.

Leadership Opportunities
 
As members of the residential community, boarding students are able to take on unique leadership opportunities. They can serve on the Dorm Board, a group of dorm parents and elected students that leads impartial hearings for students involved in violations of boarding rules, or they can run to be a Dorm Leader, providing support and guidance for the fellow residents of their dorm. 

Weekend Activities

 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.

Being a boarding student has taught me how to manage my time, stay organized, and develop autonomy.

"Being a boarding student at CSW has made me more comfortable and confident in living independently. It's taught me how to manage my time, stay organized, and develop autonomy in other realms of my life."
