The dorm facilities were recently renovated. It is the mission of the St. Mary’s Preparatory Boarding Program to help develop our residents into men, men of character, integrity, and self-discipline based on the principle of Christian charity. The Boarding Program gives our students the opportunity to prepare; to enter college with the social skills, behavior skills and study habits necessary to be successful in a college setting or any other educational institution.
The Boarding Program also gives our residents their first experience of living away from home in an academic community. Our primary goals as a staff is to help our students thrive academically and grow spiritually; develop personally, socially, emotionally, and physically. Through the direction and guidance of the Residence Staff, consisting of the Dean of Residence and Resident Advisors, residents will learn the responsibilities and duties of living in a community environment. The unique opportunity of participating in a boarding program enables residents to take advantage of a “live-in” mentoring system, where they will be in direct contact several times a day with the Residence Staff.
