Housing and Dorms

There are two options for boarding at Florida Prep: either five or seven days. On the five-day, boarding students get the best of both worlds. They are fully integrated into on-campus life; however, they spend the weekends with their families in their own homes. On the seven-day, boarding students are full-time residents, getting the complete boarding experience in preparation for their collegiate future.  There are on and off-campus events planned every weekend, which sometimes includes trips to nearby college campuses, Orlando malls, theme parks, and other attractions.

The residential dorms are located in the Hall of Flags – a historic building at the heart of the campus. Boys and girls live in separate halls which are monitored by a student Hall Leader and the Residential Life Staff.

Host family

All host families are located within less than 1 hour from school campus.
