All Summer Scholars experience the combination of independence and community that makes Lawrenceville a boarding school unlike any other! Scholars live in Houses that feel like homes in every way. Teachers and Prefects care for the Scholars, ensuring that they're healthy, happy, and making the most of their experiences. Scholars enjoy social interaction, fresh air, exercise, a bonding-focused community experience, and lots of fun!
Our House System
Every student, no matter what type of room they receive, has their own extra-long twin bed, as well as a dresser, desk, chair, and closet. Students should bring one (1) set of bed linens, including a blanket(s), a pillow(s), and bath linens. The Summer Scholars administrative team assigns roommates, and we do our best to honor reasonable requests.
Along with their evenings, which are spent in a short study hall and in an evening activity, residential Summer Scholars spend two weekends on campus, and we have many fun events for residential students. These typically include talent shows, dances, volleyball tournaments, movie nights, trivia contests, and our infamous Trashion Show. We also organize off-campus activities such as trips to Philadelphia, sports games, amusement parks, and museums. If space allows, we will open these trips to Day students for an additional fee.
