When you make the decision to board your child at Florida Prep you are not simply choosing a school, you are choosing a home away from home and our family focus remains our top priority. Our residential students live together in double occupancy rooms with other students from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures, interests and personalities. This gives our students the rare opportunity to make friends from all around the world, learn about different cultures and maybe even learn a new language!
Our residential dorms are located in the Hall of Flags – a historic building at the heart of our campus. Boys and girls live in separate halls which are monitored by our Residential Life Staff. We have at least two members of our staff present 24/7 to assist with all aspects of boarding life.
We offer two options for boarding at Florida Prep – either five or seven days. Our five-day boarding students are fully integrated into on-campus life; however, they spend the weekends with their families in their own homes. Our seven-day boarding students are our full time residents, enjoying the complete boarding experience in preparation for their collegiate future. There are on and off-campus events planned every weekend, which sometimes includes trips to nearby college campuses, Orlando malls, theme parks and other attractions.
Our Residential Life Team works with our boarding students to develop residential programs for the evenings and weekends. Fun events, including smoothie night, make-it-yourself crafting nights, study hall trivia, chilli cook-offs and and even a ramen noodle night ensuring our students are kept occupied and engaged. While these programs are designed with boarding students in mind, our day students are always welcomed and encouraged to attend and try something new!
There is a place for every student at Florida Prep. We have a large variety of clubs and organizations; many founded by members of our student body. We encourage all of our students to try something new, to create new clubs that enable them to share their unique interests with others and to respect their peers within the Florida Prep community.
