Residential Life

Updated 3/11/21

The boarding school experience is a pivotal one in the life of a young person and we want our boarding students to have as much of that experience as possible and practical during the 2020-21 school year. With this in mind, we have created a safety-focused approach for returning our residential students to campus for the spring trimester. These protocols are informed by the CDC Guidelines for Living in Shared Housing, among other resources.

There will be lots happening in Residential Life this spring! Have a question about returning to campus for the spring trimester as a boarding student? We’ve answered most of them here

Solebury School continues to use REACH as our boarding student software. REACH is incredibly robust, with the capability to monitor wellness reporting (also used by day students), as well as manage evening check-ins, activity signups, our dorm reward system, and much more. 

Our activity offerings will be engaging this spring with an emphasis on on-campus and outdoor activities. When the weather does not allow us to be outside we will have indoor options while maintaining distancing. Our Boarder Lounge will remain available to residential students on the weekends this spring, allowing a comfortable common space for boarders to hang out together. We are evaluating our ability to take off-campus weekend trips this spring and will keep students apprised of any offerings.
