The Linsly Boarding Department exists for those students who want to attend Linsly and experience boarding school residential life on our campus. Linsly offers boarding for students in grades 7-12 and provides a safe, structured and family-like environment that is committed to supporting each student academically. There are twenty-five full time faculty members who reside on campus with many who reside in homes that are attached directly to or within our dormitories.
The Boarding School Dormitories
The layout of each of the boarding school dormitories is different. Within each dormitory there are faculty members assigned a specific section or wing. The Dormitory Master for that section is responsible for the prescribing of specific rules and the conduct of those residents. Students are not permitted in other dormitories or in other wings without consent.
Our campus is located approximately one hour from the Pittsburgh International Airport. If necessary, the school can help parents arrange transportation for our boarding students to and from the airport.
Evening Study Hall
The study period in the evening is proctored by members of the on campus faculty and dormitory prefects. During this time it is expected that the dormitory will be quiet so that an atmosphere conducive to study will prevail. Radios, digital music players, mp3 players, cell phones and other audio and video devices are not permitted to be used at this time or after lights out. Of course, if computers need to be used during these times, they must be used solely for study purposes.
Study hall for all the students begins promptly at 7:30 PM. At this time students are expected to have all necessary study materials - books, paper, pencils or pens, and to be seated at their desks in their rooms. Study hall for the middle school is dismissed at 9:00 PM. Study hall is dismissed for the upper school students at 9:30 p.m.
