Residential Life

At TJ you are more than a resident, you are a part of our family. Learning to live alongside your peers is an invaluable life skill, and an essential one in preparing for college and beyond. As parents by proxy, we provide our boarding students with all of the creature comforts needed to mirror their experience at home (and countless reminders to do laundry. In addition to our expert faculty, our residential life staff consists of Resident Assistants (RAs), a school nurse, a school counselor, and members of our student-led Boarding Council, typically an upperclassman. Students share one full-time roommate and up to two day students who utilize desk space in the dorm during the academic day. Rooms are spacious, averaging 350 sq. feet (33 sq. meters), each with a private bathroom and keypad secured entrance.
