Activities & Weekend Adventures
After school, students have a wide variety of sports, clubs, and extracurricular activities available to them here on campus. For those not engaged in these activities, Residential Life students have open gym and weight room time. In the evening, students have study hall or quiet hours, depending on which program they are in. During this time, our faculty House Parents and student tutors are available to assist the students with their work.
Weekends kick off with a Community Night on Friday evening (and again on Saturday), which are student-led evenings that provide an opportunity for our students to come together as a community and enjoy a night of laughter, fun, and games. Planned activities for Community Night include events such as outdoor movies, fire and s’mores, games, birthday celebrations, karaoke, and more. Every Saturday, the residential life community takes a trip off campus to local attractions and entertainment (kayaking, hiking, museums, go-karts, etc.). On Sundays, we provide students with a shuttle that takes them to and from local shopping areas.
A Home Away From Home
The residential life students, faculty, and staff at TMI make up a small, close-knit community on our campus. With three houses and approximately 50 students, the program has a 1 to 8 House Parent-to-student ratio. Our House Parents are the primary mentors for students and give guidance in dealing with social, emotional, academic, and overall student-life challenges. Serving as a House Parent is not just a job, it is a lifestyle choice and our House Parents are willing to go the extra mile to help our students.
Safety is also a top priority for our students and families living on campus. Our over-80 acre campus is gated and TMI Safety & Security Officers provide 24-hour security on campus. All of our Residential Life staff are also full time employees at TMI with other responsibilities so they go through local and federal background checks during their time of hire.
