Bolles School in Jacksonville Florida is one of biggest day and boarding schools in this American state. International students who attend Bolles are expected to have a working knowledge of English.  For those students who are not fluent, the School offers English as a Second Language (ESL) instead of or in addition to standard English courses.  Fluency will come as a result of immersion into this culture.  To encourage language acquisition, international students are placed, whenever possible, with English-speaking roommates. Boys and girls boarding.
Shuttle buses transport middle school male boarding students to the Bartram Campus for school and other activities. The boarding program includes structured study time, room inspection, and daily academic counseling. Students immersed in this culturally diverse environment learn self-discipline, respect for others, and cooperation. The Bartram Campus is home to approximately 30 female boarders, along with resident staff members and their families, nestled in a picturesque wooded setting along Pottsburg Creek.
