TOUR OF THE BOARDING HALL

The Hill is truly a home to approximately 60 boarders, who live in the same halls that FSHA’s first students inhabited in 1931. Check out photos of the boarding hall, including the rooms, common areas, dining room and more! You can also read about important details like the dining schedule, how laundry works and where you'll get to hang out with your new friends.

Living & Gathering Spaces in the Boarding Hall

Rooms

Rooms are furnished with a bed, desk, dresser, bookshelf, nightstand for each student. While we expect each student to keep her space neat, that doesn’t mean it needs to be boring! We encourage students to make their space unique with decorations and pictures. Rooms also come complete with a trashcan, power strip and locker for each student.

Bathrooms

Each room has its own bathroom, so there's no need to walk down the hall to shower in the boarding hall.

Roommates 
When you move in, you'll have either one or two roommates. We'll carefully assign roomates based on interests, background and hobbies. We won't be surprised if your roommate becomes your trusted best friend!

Laundry Room

We have a laundry room just for boarding students. We schedule days for each grade during the week so everyone gets a chance to wash their clothes and linens. Weekends are open to any grade level.

Dining Room

Did you know that FSHA originally was a hotel? Meals are served in our Dining Room, which is the same space hotel guests dined in when the hotel opened in 1931. We love getting together for dinner, so we eat together each night, Monday through Thursday. We also celebrate birthdays with monthly, themed birthday dinners. On school days, lunches are served at the Student Activities Center.

The Pool

With the warm Southern California temperatures, a pool is a must. Our boarding students get to take advantage of FSHA's pool, also home to water polo and swim practices.

The View

We call our campus the Hill for a reason— we have an amazing view! Pictures hardly do it justice, so hopefully you'll be able to schedule a visit to see for yourself. With sweeping views of Pasadena, La Cañada and other surrounding areas, you'll also spot a range of wildlife on campus, including deer.
