Residential Life. Our dormitories are led by House Parents who supervise and care for our students. House Parents play a key role in our boarding community; many students consider them to be family members. We encourage regular communication between House Parents and students’ families; this allows the family and the Academy to can work more closely for the student’s well-being, progress and success.
Dining Hall. Dining Hall Staff prepares theme dinners along with holiday dinners throughout the school year. Educational meals with foods from around the world are prepared to enhance student learning of different food cultures on a monthly basis. This program gives students an opportunity to taste a variety of foods not typically offered. The dining hall staff enjoys decorating for holidays to give our students a feeling of home. They enjoy hearing from students about the cuisine in their countries. The dining hall at Montverde Academy is not just a place to eat, but a place to dine with friends, faculty and staff while enjoying some social time.
