Ashley LeBlanc, Dean of Students
Hebron Academy's residential life program forms the crux of the school community, placing strong emphasis on mutual respect, self-discipline, and concern for others. Faculty work to create a friendly, inclusive atmosphere that nurtures the needs of students, while promoting a healthy environment conducive to learning.

Students learn important skills that help prepare them for living on their own in college. Dorm parents continually advise students on time management, healthy eating and sleep habits, self-care, and inter-personal communication.

Day students are encouraged to participate in dorm activities, including weekend trips, and may stay overnight in the residence halls with permission.

Home and Family in Hebron

The benefits of dorm life are immense and a cornerstone of the Hebron experience. Residential living offers:
  • Unique relationships with peers and dorm parents that establish deep, genuine connections transcending the academic environment
  • Structured study halls to nurture proactive learning and strong academic habits
  • Weekly family style dining that simulates home life for many students
  • Curfew and lights out times that implement structure and encourage appropriate time management skills and healthy sleep habits
  • Dorm activities, such as make-your-own pizza night, fine dining night, birthday celebrations, holiday gatherings, spa nights, games & competitions  
  • Caring for "home" with rotating chores for students to clean and maintain the dorms
  • Periodic programs on health and safety
  • Community service projects
