What do the boarding students do during breaks when the boarding houses are closed?
登机 houses are closed during long breaks (Christmas Break, Thanksgiving Break and Spring Break). 因此, Brook Hill assists boarding students in finding host homes if they opt to not travel home during breaks. 而大多数学生回家过圣诞假期, many of our students take advantage of host homes during Thanksgiving Break and Spring Break. We ask our students to pay their host family $50 for each day that they stay with them. 登机 parents also arrange domestic trips if there is interest that the students can take part in if they choose for a reasonable cost.
Yes, students are allowed to own and drive vehicles while boarding at Brook Hill. 学生必须持有有效的美国签证.S. drivers license, be passing all classes and be in compliance with all residential life policies. This is a privilege and not a right that can be revoked or suspended at any time by the Director of Residential Life. Students must honor all curfew times and sign out with the house parent on-duty before leaving campus. The student will give their car keys to the boarding house parents upon arriving home.
Unless a student already has a bank account that they want to retain and use, 学生可以在Southside银行开设学生银行账户, 这家公司在布拉德有分部吗. 该帐户为学生提供借记卡，但不提供支票, 消除透支他们账户的可能性. At least five trips per week are taken to the bank branch for those students who need to go to the bank that week.
书籍和制服可以在到达布鲁克山后订购. 一旦学生有了课程表, a member of the Residential Life Staff will assist them in ordering their books. 如果学生在到达之前已经有了他的时间表, 他可以上网订购课本, 把他们运到布鲁克山. 书籍的费用粗略估计在300美元到800美元之间.
The Residential Life Staff will also assist students in the purchase of their 制服. 在他们到达的第一周内，学生可以试穿 Landsend 制服. The amount of 制服 students purchase can be determined by how often they do laundry. 例如, the more a student does laundry the less clothing he will need to purchase and vice versa. 制服的成本大约在200美元到500美元之间.
