The complete cost of food is included in tuition for resident students who are on campus during the regular weeks of school. The menu varies each week and includes dishes from around the world (currently Asian, Hispanic, Italian, American and Mediterranean influences) and is constantly expanding to meet the needs and preferences of our students.
Dorm students have regular access to the school gymnasium, library, weight room, track, tennis courts, lake, commons, auditorium, and the many events going on at SCL each day. Resident students are encouraged to take advantage of the many recreational and cultural opportunities available in the Twin Cities area. The campus is within walking distance of a variety of shops and restaurants, and shuttle transportation is available for weekly trips to the mall. Weekend activities include ski trips, concerts, sporting events and cultural offerings. Student activities are monitored according to parents’ wishes, and an online report of student weekend plans is emailed to parents and supervisors.
Six full-time residence supervisors oversee the dormitory with at least two supervisors on duty at all times. They also tend to the day-to-day needs of all dorm students. All dorm residents are responsible for checking in and out with supervisors, and supervisors regularly check on students. Regularly scheduled meetings, special events, and celebrations are all a part of residence life.
SCL students matriculate to top universities in America.
