Resident Student Life
As a part of the Resident Life program, all boarders are grouped into Dorm Families headed by a member of the Resident Life staff. The Dorm Family program provides students with a small and cohesive setting and for Dorm Family Heads to act as a residential advisor. Dorm Families celebrate birthdays together, meet periodically and have formal, family-style meals monthly.
Dorm Prefects are student leaders, selected by the Resident Life staff, and dedicated to improving campus and boarding life at The Bolles School. Prefects serve as mentors to their peers, as well as liaisons between the boarders and the Resident Life staff. In addition, they assist with the coordination of activities, managing the dorm and helping in the guidance of the younger students.
