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.

Girard offers a five-day boarding program. Students live on campus from Sunday night through Friday afternoon, then return home on the weekend.
