Student Life

A Day at the Brook

Boarding Student Life

SBS is home to approximately 180 boarders every year.  Our desire is for our students to learn and grow as they live together in a safe and comfortable community.

There are currently seven single-gender residential halls that house our boarding students and sixteen faculty families. The remainder of the faculty live in the homes that surround our 55 acre wooded campus. Although every residence hall is uniquely designed, each one has a main lounge with couches and a television, laundry facilities, and a kitchen area. The majority of the rooms are designed for two students, although there are scattered singles and triples.

Day Student Life

As a residential community, our day students also reap the benefits of our family-style community, the accessibility of our faculty, and our evening and weekend trips and activities.  We encourage our day students to stay overnight on campus and experience SBS as our boarders do.  There are times that day students may wish to stay in the dorms due to an evening lab or an early morning trip.  They are also welcome to come for an extended stay of a week or more if they are contemplating boarding their last year of high school in preparation for college.

A Typical Day

Boarders and day students alike share a similar schedule between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:45 p.m.  Classes are in session until 3:15 p.m. each day, and sports and elective programs run for two hours, from 3:45 until 5:45 p.m.  Both boarding and day students share in a chapel service each week. Additionally, all students can enjoy an optional hot breakfast each morning before class begins, and every evening a family-style dinner is served in the Kanas Commons.  Faculty members and their families are assigned to a table, while students rotate from table to table every two or three weeks.  Boarders, faculty members, and their families also gather together for Sunday worship in Hegeman Chapel and a formal Sunday afternoon dinner.
