The residential community at TMI consists of a diverse collection of students with varied backgrounds, ethnicities, nationalities, and spiritual beliefs. This diversity is celebrated not only in the boarding program, but across the entire TMI community. Most recently TMI has welcomed international students from Mexico, Haiti, Nigeria, Russia, China, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore. The boarding community also welcomes students from across Texas and the United States. International students are encouraged to become involved in the numerous on-campus clubs, organizations, and athletic teams. Community involvement is critical in ensuring that our students’ boarding experience is fulfilling and meaningful. We invite international students to contact us with any questions they may have about one of Texas’ top college-preparatory boarding programs.
We are continuing to closely monitor the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and the implications it has on our boarding students. We understand how stressful the uncertainty brought on by the COVID-19 outbreak has been for families that have their children looking to attend school internationally. We want to assure you that we are taking every precaution to keep our boarding students safe during this time.The administrative team at TMI has developed a plan that is designed for the safety of your child while providing a learning continuity plan that will do the following:
- Address the safety and well-being of our boarding community.
- Facilitate a learning model that will include online classes.
- Provide a sense of community and support in the dorms during a time of social distancing.
Our plan is based on the latest guidance and information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other organizations, including local health officials and schools. TMI’s Health Center has been monitoring the health of all the residential life staff and students on campus.
Looking ahead, TMI plans to offer a residential life program throughout the summer. Summer boarding will host a variety of activities while considering the need to keep our boarding students safe and engaged during this break. Programming for our boarding students will include SAT prep classes, writing workshops, and other skill-building opportunities, all while adhering to CDC and social distancing guidelines.
