5-day boarding at EF Academy Pasadena


Our 5-day boarders typically head home on Friday evenings or Saturday afternoons, returning to school either on Sunday evenings or Monday mornings. This arrangement provides many students with the ideal balance: they can fully engage in school activities during the week, dedicate themselves to academics and socializing with friends, and then unwind at home with their parents over the weekends.
