New Facility

In 2010 construction began on a new dormitory and will be complete for the start of the 2010 Fall semester. This state of the art facility combines comfort and a secure lifestyle for our students, while having all the modern conveniences for to help our students achieve.

This facility is located just 5 miles from the Erie First Christian Academy in the historic Township of Waterford PA. Close enough to Erie for shopping and activities, yet in a private country setting.  In the winter students will be able to walk to a snow tubing hill and ice skating ponds and, in the summer, to a state-of-the-art wave pool, soccer fields and basketball courts– all located within our property! With construction completing in August 2010, this multi-million dollar facility has all great amenities including an activities center with modern game room, multi-media room with wireless high speed internet access, excellent dining facilities and a fitness center membership with pool, plus a fitness center equipped right in our dorm.

Modern Boarding Rooms and Exceptional Care

Our dorms offer a traditional residential setting. There are shared common areas for relaxation and recreation, and the buildings are staffed by full-time employees and live in families.

Your dorm rooms are spacious and have private bathrooms and shower facility for each room. Laundry facilities are located within each dorm building and are free to the boarding students. Wireless high speed internet is available within our entire campus.

Each boarding student will also have access to a local fitness center with modern weight equipment, exercise machines and swimming pools. See also our activities page listing the wide variety of activities offered to our boarding students.

We feed our students well too! We take pride in our exceptional menu and we have events like international night where a student features the cuisine from their country. We offer a healthy menu with a wide variety of entrees for any diet and appetite!

Dorm staff works hard to maintain an atmosphere that supports learning and fun. Residential staff are generous with their time and are deeply concerned with the well-being of each student.

Students may have cell phones along with access to high speed internet.
