A LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE
Five-day boarding offers the best of both worlds! Upper schoolers enjoy all that our campus has to offer during the school week and then head home for family time over the weekend.
Living on campus makes it more convenient to participate in McDonogh’s many extracurricular activities and gives students opportunities to study, make new friends, and build community with campus residents. In a supportive setting, boarders develop the independence, self-discipline, and personal responsibility needed in college and beyond. Boarding is available for the entire year or one term at a time. Download the application.
To qualify for boarding, a student’s primary residence must be within 90 miles of the McDonogh School campus in Owings Mills, Maryland. Exemptions may be made if the applicant has a relative (by blood or marriage) within the 90-mile radius and that family member agrees to serve as a local host family on weekends and in cases of emergency. Due to the nature of our five-day boarding program, students must return home on weekends, and sometimes more frequently due to holidays, weather events, or illness. To learn more about the exemption application process, please contact the Director of Enrollment Management.
