Justin-Siena High School in Napa, CA, recently announced that it will open a new boarding program beginning in the fall of 2014 to house both international and domestic students.
The school has offered an international program for more than 15 years in which students reside with host families. This year the school has enrolled 27 international students from around the world including Germany, Japan, Poland, Brazil, Korea, China, Italy, and Spain; but it hopes to expand the international program with this on-campus boarding option. The school will also open the program to current families as well as other domestic families looking for a boarding school on the West Coast, confident that it will lead to enhancing the cultural experience and maintaining a diverse student population.
The boarding program will be located in the former convent of the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael, who founded Siena High School and co-sponsored Justin-Siena until 2006. The school is fully sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers who founded Justin High School.
