Welcome back! While we are not able to return to our home-away-from-home at Flintridge Sacred Heart, we are safer together as a residential life family by staying apart, for now.
The Residential Life staff is planning for our students’ return; we have some new room furniture arriving soon, some fun and colorful paint to spruce up the halls, and decorating with the 2020-21 theme, “Pokemon!”
We are also planning a safe reopening for all in order for us to stay safe and healthy. We are meeting as a community several times each month in groups; new student, Boarding Council, and our full residential life family. The focus of our meetings will be orientation, teambuilding and leadership development under our new social-emotional learning curriculum.
In this home away from home, boarders develop strong bonds during monthly birthday dinners, retreats and so much more, while also taking advantage of all that Southern California has to offer.
