Students feel at home in the dorms and the dining room; across the lawns and gardens; in the library, the gym, or the pool; and on the track. They have warm, welcoming spaces to gather with friends, study, share a meal, and take some quiet time for themselves.
Baking brownies in the kitchen in Thompson Dorm, gathering the girls on each floor to watch a movie in Hills Dorm, or meeting with study partners in Greer Dorm, boarding students embrace the dorms as a home away from home. The common areas make for cozy, inviting study and lounge spaces. In the dining room, faculty and students come together for Community Dinner every Monday.
Venturing off campus, students explore downtown Monterey and Carmel, finding their favorite coffee shops and lunch spots as day students help boarders get to know the area. Weekend trips to neighboring cities or hiking excursions in state and national parks give students the opportunity to enjoy a new sense of independence and dive into unfamiliar territory with confidence.
