Residential Life

Indian Springs Residential Life

Our Alabama private high school boarding program gathers students from around the world and teaches them how to grow as individuals within a vibrant, diverse, respectful community. Since we opened in 1952, boarding has enriched our school community by enabling students to immerse themselves in their educational lives, build camaraderie through shared experience, and discover for themselves the meaning of responsibility.

Our dynamic Residential Life program gives a third of our student body a chance to live on our beautiful 350-acre campus and experience the benefits of Learning through Living beyond the traditional school day. From pizza parties to mat ball and nature hikes to concerts, boarders enjoy an array of fun nighttime and weekend activities and have access to readily available support from our dedicated faculty members, more than half of whom live on campus.

The relationships formed and the experiences shared in Hess and Goodrich Halls are often the foundation of a student’s fondest memories of Indian Springs.
