At Our Private Boarding School in Texas
The San Marcos Academy Boarding School program is open to boys and girls from grades 6-12. Representing a number of different countries, U.S. states and Texas cities, our boarding students benefit from the nurturing, structured, and comfortable environment of our Residence Hall, where our dorm parents and staff provide supervision and mentoring by forming relationships with the students in their care. Through the boarding experience, students can develop time management, independence, teamwork, and other valuable life skills that will serve them well after graduation.
The Academy offers two boarding options: the traditional 7-day boarding program or the 5-day boarding program, designed for families residing within a 70-mile radius of the Academy campus. Starting in the 2020-21 school year, we are also offering a 5-day boarding program for students residing in Houston. Our residence halls are open every weekend and on most holidays. The exceptions are Thanksgiving week, Christmas/New Year’s break and Spring Break. Please Note: we can assist in scheduling a home stay for international students during major holiday breaks. At the end of each semester, students should check out of the dormitory when their finals are completed.
For the 2020-21 school year, the Residence Hall will open at Stage 2 of our Res Life Communicable Disease Action Plan.
