The Boarding Experience

MHS_BoardingExperienceTop

Living away from home gives students a new lens through which to see themselves. Our boarding environment is designed to foster and support community. This is a time for students to explore and refine their sense of self. In community, students have the opportunity to see their own worth in a new way, to see what they are able to contribute as full and equal members of a society.

We believe that a mature personality is not created in isolation, but in community. The boarding experience gives students a chance to be themselves and to see who they are in a larger society. The boarding house is a “home away from home,” with house parents living within the home and in the nearby carriage house.
