We offer a supervised study program six days a week by qualified staff, full wireless internet, and access to computers and online study tools. Learners have access to extra study material and continual guidance from staff and peers. Staff take on the role of parent in the area of checking the completion of homework for all full-time and week-day boarders.
The Boarding House at Green Hills Academy is a modern, purpose-built accommodation with a capacity of nearly 100 boarders. Its success lies in the clear behavioral expectations, the wide range of activities, and the safe and nurturing environment that is created to make the boarders feel and participate as a family away from home. There are separate wings for boys and girls, and the number of learners in each room is usually four. The facilities have solar-heated water, and laundry facilities, and are connected to the school’s large generator to ensure continued power supply.
Three Boarding Options
Full-time boarding is where the pupil stays at the boarding house on weekdays and weekends. It is within full boarding that learners can achieve a strong balance between academics, sports, activities, service, living skills, and socialization. The majority of our learners who are elected for leadership roles are full boarders.
Learners attend boarding for school days only. Learners return home on Fridays (or the afternoon before holidays) before 5 pm and return to boarding by Sunday (or the opening of boarding) between 5 pm and 7 pm. Whilst residing in the boarding house learners have the rights and responsibilities of full-time boarders.
Weekday boarding is a good option for parents who are available to supervise and care for their children on the weekend. Weekday boarders have the opportunity to stay for certain weekends and join set activities. A weekday boarder participates in the program to a large extent but misses out on the majority of the activity program and weekend activities.
Short-term boarding is for a set, limited period of time. Short-term boarders participate fully in the program and have all the rights and responsibilities of the full boarder for that set period.
We believe that the overall benefit of Boarding at Green Hills Academy above being a day learner is that the learning continues after the bell. Amongst their peers and supportive staff, learners have the opportunity to grow into young adults with a strong foundation. Green Hills Academy Boarding can be used as a learning path for university, careers, and travel in an environment where learners are safe and protected, encouraged to try new things, learn, and become the best version of themselves.
