Girard College educates the whole child. Nowhere is this more evident than in the residential program. Students learn life lessons about living in a community, which enriches their school-day educational experiences, and enables them to pursue the school's core values of integrity, respect, self-discipline, compassion and responsibility.
RAs (residential advisors) live with students in gender and grade level-based groups and create a family atmosphere on campus. Students return to campus every Sunday evening and are dismissed to their families and guardians on Friday afternoons and for holidays.
