Residential Life

Lifelong friendships are made at Stoneleigh-Burnham, and many of those friendships begin in the dorm rooms. Living together in dorms brings girls together like a family – a socially, economically and ethnically diverse family. Girls and their roommates make their living spaces uniquely theirs, and Houseparents and Residential Assistants give boarding students the round-the-clock support they need and go out of their way to make each and every girl feel special and important
