A mcdonogh tradition
Since 1873, boarding has been part of the McDonogh tradition. Today, Upper School students are given the opportunity to participate in a five-day boarding program that offers countless benefits beyond a traditional high school experience. As boarders, students enjoy all that the McDonogh campus has to offer while developing the independence, self-discipline, and responsibility that will be needed in college and beyond.
Students may board for the entire year or one term at a time. Download the application.
Please note: Our Five-Day Boarding program is designed for students that reside within a 90-mile radius of our campus in Owings Mills, Maryland. Due to the nature of our five-day boarding program, students must return home on weekends, and sometimes more frequently due to holidays or weather events.
A student’s primary residence must be within 90 miles of the McDonogh School campus in Owings Mills, Maryland to qualify for boarding. The School is not able to accept any applications for admission or boarding from students who reside outside that distance.
