Freeman Academy’s on-campus housing is conveniently located on the west end of the school’s campus in recently renovated, Frontier Hall. Our on-campus housing overlooks the soccer fields and the beautiful arboretum area.
The dorm can house a maximum of 16 students in our two-bedroom suites. Our student suites are made up of two bedrooms that share a private shower and toilet. Three suites have an additional living space. The bedrooms include built in desks, closets with ample storage space, beds, bedding and a sink with vanity. Each suite can accommodate two to four students of the same sex. As space allows, students often have a bedroom to themselves.
In addition to the private suites, there is a large community dining area with a kitchenette and computers available for student use. The facility is equipped with Wi-Fi access. There is a living room area with comfortable seating, cable TV, and games. Laundry facilitates are available for the student’s use at no charge and are conveniently located on the same level as the living space.
The on-campus housing is supervised by the resident dorm supervisors who live on site in an apartment located adjacent to the students’ community areas. The resident dorm supervisors have dedicated their time and energy to creating a family-like atmosphere in the dorm. Evenings include a sit-down, home-cooked family meal, assistance with homework as needed, and planned as well as spontaneous games and conversations. Weekend activities vary based on school-sponsored events but include attendance at local churches, trips to Sioux Falls, Yankton, and other area cities. In short, the dorm experience is a home away from home.
Freeman Academy’s on-campus housing is small enough that it can be considered very similar to a private host family experience with the camaraderie of having classmates and friends just down the hall. Being located directly on campus allows the students easy access to all of the school’s facilities and allows for convenient participation in extra curricular activities or spontaneous games of basketball or soccer.
