Residential Dormitory Boarding
TKA’s Residential Dormitory Boarding program is a one of a kind offering that integrates international students into large, school-owned homes located within the residential communities closely surrounding the school, under the care of school-employed dorm parents. This unique and extremely popular program offers students and their families the predictability and reliability of an institutional boarding program, while maintaining the family-style atmosphere of the overall TKA program.
TKA’s dorm homes are large, typically exceeding 3,000 square feet (approx. 280 square meters), beautifully maintained, and feature a variety of amenities including swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball hoops, table tennis etc. Each dorm house is limited to only six total international students of the same gender per home.
Unlike many institutional boarding programs where students are placed in large groups and looked after by young RA’s, TKA’s married dorm parents are seasoned professionals who pay close attention to the well-being of each of the six students placed in their care. Dorm parents provide loving support, meals, and transportation throughout the year.
While TKA continues to expand this program each year to meet extremely high demand, this limited-capacity program fills up quickly and interested students should plan to apply early.
