Dormitory Living

Our goal is to build positive and productive relationships with our students while supporting and guiding them through life at Valley View.  Teachers and residential staff are assigned to specific dormitories to supervise and help students with their daily routines. Our awake overnight staff observes the boys throughout the night and are available when needed to comfort and assist any students who may be struggling.

When selecting a dorm room and roommate for a new student, we consider a student’s age, interests and specific needs as we decide what living situation will be the most therapeutically supportive for him. There are three separate dormitory buildings on campus. They are Doane House, Long & Short Hall and East Dorm. Each dormitory has a mix of single, double and triple dorm rooms. Sharing a private space can be challenging for students who have never shared a bedroom or bathroom with a family member; therefore, we teach our students how to navigate these difficulties with the expectation that the new living skills will prepare them for returning home or to a traditional boarding school.


Valley View is situated on 215
acres of forests and rolling hills in
