Living at Maharishi School, whether in the dorms or with host families, creates lifetime bonds. Our students have shared experiences that span passion projects, classes, athletic teams, and day-to-day living. You’ll meet and live with people you would never have who come from all over the world to study at Maharishi School. Our new dorm is so close to the classroom facilities that it serves as a social center for both residential and day students.
Maharishi School is more than a place to sleep and study, which is why we have many touchpoints for our students to get involved. Our students gain knowledge at our farm-to-table dining table, in the meditation hall, regional field trips, weekend social events like bowling, eSports night, Iron Chef night, and other excursions designed for our boarding students. Learn more about student activities available beyond the classroom.
Resident dorm parents live in the dorm and manage your home away from home. Other dorm counselors support our new dorm family on certain weeknights and weekends but do not actually live in the dorm. The dorm staff supervises evening study hours, sponsor weekend trips and activities, and be on hand whenever students need assistance. Study hours take place Sunday through Thursday evenings and boarders are expected to work productively and quietly.
The dorm rooms can be customized by each student’s comfort and to reflect their personality. The dorm features amenities such as a common media room where boarders can watch movies or sports on the big screen TV, board games and ping-pong tables, dedicated study hours where students can work productively and quietly, lean on dorm counselors for support in transitioning and who are on hand for assistance, chat with teachers, and more all while having fun. Maharishi School is more than just academia or a place to sleep, it’s a community.
