RESIDENCE AND MENTORING PROGRAM
Boarding school life is a vibrant aspect of the Nile Academy experience, and it is rewarding for us to lead a team of dedicated professionals to provide a dynamic residential program. Our aim is not only to provide a safe, caring, and consistent living environment but also to create opportunities for students to experience what it means to live in a cross cultural context. Working together with students, we desire to foster an atmosphere of community and cultural understanding. Without a doubt, students develop life long friendships that circle the globe as a result of living in the dormitory. Such diverse friendships enable students to become ‘globally minded’ and well equipped to make a positive difference in the world.
Students are having hot lunch in boarding school during the week. Breakfast, and dinner are available Monday through Saturday in dorm Dining Hall. On Sunday, brunch is served and dinner is prepared in the evening. Our server is a large, bright area that offers a salad bar and soup stations as part of the hot lunch selections. Fresh fruits are also available. Boarding school students also enjoy a wide variety of breakfast and dinner choices.
OUR WEEKENDS AT BOARDING SCHOOL
On Saturdays, students have outdoor classes .Our goal is to provide boarders with opportunities to experience Canadian culture, to develop new skills, to gain a greater understanding of the international community in which they live and to become independent thinkers. The program is offered to boarding students; by doing so we believe this helps to strengthen the relationship between students and foster a sense of community.
Sundays are restful, reserved for sleeping-in, informal sports and boarding school activities, and studying.
The weekends are also filled with a lot of fun activities, including hosting guess speaker at dorm and other spirit events, family breakfast, intramural sports, shopping and movie trips.
