Benefits of Five-Day Boarding

A distinctive facet of the McDonogh Boarding Program is that students live on campus during the school week, and on the weekends they return home to see their families. Spending time in both places allows the students the unique opportunity to remain a part of their home lives while creating a new home for themselves in the dorms. There is a great deal of trust placed in the students to continue living the McDonogh philosophy on the weekends, and we find that students meet that expectation eagerly and gracefully. Along with the independence this setup offers, the boarders also build a supportive community made up of people from all areas of their lives whose goal is to see them succeed.

I found that toward the end of long breaks, and even some Sunday afternoons, I would be missing the dorms, and I was always excited to go back.
