Boarding at Keio
There are about three hundred boarders and thirty Commuters. Every student is a member of a House, of which there are six, denominated K E I O N and Y. Each House consists of fifty students across the age range, creating a family of seniors and juniors. Girls are housed separately from boys.
Each House is run by a Head of House, who has complete responsibility for the well-being, academic, co-curricular and social, of the students in his or her House. The Head of House is also the first and main point of contact for parents. The Head of House is assisted by a Boarding Assistant, and also by a team of Faculty Advisors each of whom comes into the House during Study Hall to take an interest in the progress of students. This structure ensures that students have a team of supporters who know them well.
Tables in the Dining Hall are arranged in House configurations to ensure a family atmosphere. There is always an adult at every table to ensure good conversation and good table manners.
