Girard College’s residential program continues the school’s mission of educating the whole child. Residential Advisors (RAs) implement programs that support and encourage student development in academics, character and emotional and social growth.

RAs live in the dormitories with their students, and are often the main point of contact with families. Sections are organized by grade level and gender, and each section has its own décor and personality. Our residential staff excels at providing structure and comfort as well as fostering independence.

Extended Day Program

The Extended Day Program (EDP) provides additional learning opportunities after the academic day is completed. Students can discover new interests and pursue their passions with programs such as: Culinary Skills, Gardening, Swimming, SCUBA, Lifeguarding, Theater, Choir, Band, Visual Arts, 3D Printing and more.
