Boarding students at the Miller School of Albemarle live in two dormitories: girls live in Wayland Hall, and boys live in Old Main.
Wayland Hall is home to approximately forty girls in grades 8-12. Each girl has her own room, and all rooms are furnished with a bed, wardrobe, desk, and chair. Many residents customize their rooms with area rugs, lamps, and posters. Personal mini refrigerators are allowed in rooms, and a snack room equipped with a microwave and freezer is available for everyone to use. Two lounge areas give residents a space to relax together, or to gather for scheduled movies and dorm activities. Two study rooms provide quieter space for study groups and collaboration on school projects.
Wayland Hall is maintained by Antoinette Tyler and Jessica and Tommy Landseadel, who live with their families in apartments in the dorm. Ms. Tyler and Ms. Landseadel host weekly dorm meetings, organize special dorm activities, and provide a welcoming atmosphere in the Wayland residents’ “home away from home.”
The boys dorm is located on the ground floor of Old Main, Miller School of Albemarle’s primary building. The spacious rooms accommodate 2-4 boys, each with his own bed, wardrobe, desk, and chair. Personal mini refrigerators are allowed in rooms, and microwaves are available for everyone to use. Multiple lounge areas, some equipped with TV and video equipment, provide space for residents to gather.
Old Main is directed by Danny Manuel and Jonathan Hayden, who host weekly dorm meetings, organize special dorm activities, and provide a welcoming atmosphere in the Old Main residents’ “home away from home.”
