Student Life
Boarding at STA

STA Dormitory

Boarders reside in attractive single or double rooms in the school's historic Lane-Johnston Building, much as they have for a century, but with the benefits of modern-day conveniences. In addition to the students' private rooms, accommodations in the dormitory include two lounges, a foosball table and game area, a laundry room, and common rooms. Looking out from the highest ground in the District of Columbia, dormitory windows offer striking views of the Cathedral Close and the city skyline. Dorm rooms are furnished with a bed, dresser, wardrobe, desk, bookshelf, and chair, and WiFi is available in each room. Boarders share the dormitory with resident faculty, including the head of the dormitory and several other school families in adjacent apartments. A student to adult ratio of 5-to-1 creates close relationships between the dorm faculty and the boys.
