tHE GREAT BENEFITS OF DORMITORY LIVING

Whether it is as a full-time out-of-town/international student or a 5-day student from the greater Phoenix area, Thunderbird Adventist Academy offers a variety of dormitory options for students wishing to stay on campus.

Already a dorm student or preparing to move-in? Review our Dorm Handbook for dormitory specific rules and requirements.

academics

Learning responsible study habits is an integral part of being a Thunderbird dorm student. In our most recent year 50 percent of dorm students were on the Dean's list all four quarters.

SPIRITUALITY

Daily worship allows students to grow together and support each other as they explore what God means to them; and student speakers use creative exercises to illustrate concepts in ways that will be remembered for a lifetime.

community

Sharing the highs, the lows, and everything in between leads to life-long relationships.

PUBLIC SERVICE

Commitment to public service is a key characteristic of the TAA graduate. Annual trips to harvest food and distribute it to the homeless are the culmination of a dorm student's exploration of civic duty.

HOME

For the better part of the year, the dorm is our home. Cleaning and caring for our extensively renovated dormitories teaches responsibility and a strong work ethic.

LEADERSHIP

Although they make up only 29 percent of our student population, dorm students made up 63 percent of the 2016-2017 graduating class officers.

TRAVEL

Annual dorm student camping trips to the Grand Canyon are a highlight of the school year.
