STUDY. PLAY. BOND.
Nurturing and Supporting Students to Live Successfully
Living away from home offers Columbia students an incredible opportunity for personal and academic growth and exploration under the caring, supportive supervision of a team that is focused on helping each student discover his or her unique potential. Columbia’s Total Care® approach looks at the academic, social, emotional and physical needs of each student and makes sure they are being met in an age-appropriate way through all aspects of boarding school life. Students receive help to transition to their new living situation safely and smoothly. High quality programming ensures that they’re kept busy with interesting and educational activities that help them make lifelong friends from diverse backgrounds. A wide variety of delicious and nutritious foods fuel the body and the mind. After-school academic support helps students get the most from their studies when they’re not in the classroom. After living in a Columbia residence, students have developed the skills to take on life’s next challenge with enthusiasm and confidence.
