Boarding Student Option

Maharishi School Welcomes Boarding School Students

Boarding at Maharishi School gives American and international students the opportunity to live and learn in a nurturing, stress-free environment. With over thirty countries represented at our school, our students cultivate lasting relationships, and develop a respect and appreciation for all cultures.

Students board at Maharishi School in two different settings: some live with host families and others in dormitories with dorm parents. The boarding school option is available to students ages 15 and up.

“As parents, all we want is for our children to be safe, happy and healthy while they learn and grow. Any parent would be happy for their child to study at Maharishi School because it provides an ideal caring and nurturing environment.”
Dr. Yunxiang Zhu,Vice President of Asia Expansion and Professor of Management, Maharishi University of Management

“For Chinese students and parents, the best part of coming to Maharishi School is that rest is the basis of activity. We don’t have to wake up early and stay up late in order to get good grades. We get lots of sleep and exercise, so we retain what we study. We are more creative when we are not stressed. The courses are preparing me for university, and I am doing well in school.”- Runzhao, boarding student from China

"Compared to other schools I’ve been in, everyone here is more high level. They cooperate and stay on the same level. If someone needs assistance, the teachers and kids help them. The meditation helps me focus a lot. Everyone needs meditation." - Rashaan, boarding student from New York

“The people here are good people, very helpful and friendly, and the kids respect each other. The school looked like a safe place to live and learn a new language, but I was surprised how safe it is. The teachers really care about us. And with the TM technique, I’m more relaxed and positive.” - Brendan, boarding student from Korea, pictured at left with other boarding students: Samira (North Carolina), BoonGin (Malaysia) and Christian (Argentina)

“My parents chose Maharishi School because it is a safe place for me to live and improve my English language skills before college. I like it here very much and love my American family. They are a lot like my family in China. We laugh and have fun together.”
