Residential Boarding Program

Home Away From Home

The Northwest School is the only independent school in Seattle that offers a both a five- and seven-day weekly residential boarding program. Our dormitory is located on campus and houses approximately 60 students on gender-specific floors; students live two to a room.

The dormitory also houses students from other countries participating in Northwest's international study program, so boarding students sometimes live with a roommate from a different country.

Common areas include lounges where students can relax and watch TV, laundry facilities, a computer lab and a study room. Experienced residential advisors are always present and students enjoy full housing amenities, including nutritious meals prepared by our professional kitchen staff, as well as evening and weekend outings.
