Upper School San Jose Campus
Town and Country magazine defines the Bolles Upper School San Jose Campus as one of "19 Boarding Schools That Look More Like Relais & Chateaux Properties Than High School Campuses." With the St. Johns River as its backdrop and sprawling green lawns, the 52-acre campus certainly lives up to this account. The centerpiece of campus is Bolles Hall, built in 1925 as the San Jose Hotel and reinvigorated in 1933 as The Bolles School. Today, more than 800 students attend day classes on the multi-building campus, including up to 60 male boarders who come to live and study at Bolles from all over the world. The upper school campus is where students learn to hone and apply the many academic, artistic, athletic and community service lessons they have learning in lower and middle school. The upper school experience includes a broad array of leading edge resources, including an Anatomage digital dissection table, 3-D printers, robotic equipment, technology and tools that help students achieve high standards in all areas of study. Students on the upper school campus participate in more than 80 service organizations on campus and 40 fine and performing arts opportunities throughout the school year. Most of all, students are challenged to follow the Bolles Way in everything they do on campus: "Pursuing excellence through courage, integrity and compassion."
