Boarding Students at Maharishi School...

Maharishi School is a private day and boarding school in Fairfield, Iowa.  One of the top boarding schools in the Midwest, Maharishi School offers top-notch academics, a diverse and inclusive student body, a wide variety of extracurricular activities, and a holistic-health curriculum that includes yoga, meditation, and organic food....live with host families carefully selected from the Maharishi School community. Host parents either have children currently attending the school, children who graduated from Maharishi School, or they are employed at either Maharishi School or Maharishi University of Management. Host parents apply for the position by completing an application. If they meet the criteria, the Admissions Team visits their home to discuss the program in depth. They also evaluate the suitability of the home, including the bedroom of the incoming boarding student.

Once approved, the host parents are required to attend regular monthly meetings, and to send a report to the natural parents once a month. We are proud to say that our international consultants have received very positive reports from our students concerning their happiness at the school and with their chosen host families. This policy of total immersion with an American family is preferable to living in a dormitory as it provides a full experience of American life.
