Being a Boarding Student
At Oldfields, boarders come from as far away as Saudi Arabia and California, or as close as Annapolis and across the street. Learning and living with peers and committed adults who teach, coach, and advise creates a community that reflects the School's motto.
The experience of being away from home instills a sense of confidence and responsibility, thus providing a smoother transition to college. Boarding life grants students the opportunity to strengthen their character, while maintaining supportive relationships with those around them.
Many day students stay in a dormitory during the week for evening comitments, and boarders often go home with their day student friends on the weekends. This interaction is an integral part of what makes the Oldfields community feel like a family.
