Student Government At Boarding Schools

Living on campus is much more than just going to class and studying. Boarding life is a constant adventure with most students finding a comfortable balance between academic performance and extracurricular activities.
Our alumni consistently tell us that our student run Job Program was formative for their future success, noting proudly that they were supervisors, event planners, and project managers before they even graduated  high school.
All students complete an independent project through our LASR program. LASR stands for Leadership, Arts, Service, and Research. These general categories demonstrate the range of projects that students choose to undertake. This program is our way of saying that passion matters, and that we know each and every student has a spark that we want to help focus.
Teamwork, dedication, and sacrifice are key components of our athletic programs. Participation in athletics promotes good health but also teaches invaluable life lessons. Through athletics, students learn to develop confidence, self-discipline and leadership skills while learning the value of collaboration. Athletics allow students the opportunity to work together in accomplishing defined goals.
Madeira's 376-acre campus in McLean, Virginia, overlooks the Potomac River from a perch just 12 miles northwest of Washington, D.C.
Our beautiful 59-acre campus provides the perfect setting for open minds to inquire, explore, and grow in order to succeed in an ever-changing global community.
Windermere Preparatory School hosts unrivaled athletic facilities including a swimming pool, gymnasium, weight room, track, athletic courts & fields, and Sports Performance Center.
Salisbury School Dinning Hall
The math curriculum offers AP and Honors level classes, as well as small-group tutoring
Boland Hall is the home to many of Prep's 110 resident students.  Our campus is less than 5 miles from the Nation's Capital
The Arts
The Bell on Suffield's Bell Hill is a central school symbol. All students ring it after receiving their Suffield diplomas at Commencement, and victorious athletic teams ring it throughout the year.
Although community service hours are not required at Webb, many of our students voluntarily choose to participate in one or more of our numerous service activities. In the past few years, our students have traveled to Costa Rica, Thailand, Romania, Australia, Nepal, Fiji and three countries in Africa on service trips.
Also unique to the VFMA educational experience, our academically qualified high school juniors and seniors are granted the opportunity to enroll in college level classes, taken at Valley Forge Military College, on campus.
Albert Le Page Fitness Center and The Sommer Family Squash Courts
Forman has a total of 13 dormitories on campus. The majority (85%) of students are boarders, but day students are invited to participate fully in evening study halls, meals, social events and other campus activities.
