SPIRE’s High School Academy students board at Andrews Osborne Academy (AOA). AOA’s seven dormitories are large homes housing between eight to twenty-four boarders.  Staff members living in the dorms are responsible for the security, health and well being of boarders.  In overseeing the daily life in the dorms, they keep boarders on schedule for camp sessions, account for their whereabouts, and coordinate boarders’ needs with camp staff and parents.  While the majority of rooms house two students, there are a few that hold three or four.  Bathrooms are shared.


Optional English lessons from Monday to Friday.


Campus players can connect their laptops WIFI or use the computers on campus.


The player provides their own insurance. Option to buy a sports insurance plan for an additional charge.
