APIS Residential Life Program
The Residential Life Program is not just a boarding program but a place where students can learn the skills necessary for life. We advocate : Taking care of ourselves, taking care of each other, taking care of this place/space and having fun!
American Pacific International School on-campus residential facility is for international students in grades 5-12 (ages 10 – 19). We are a small facility and this allows residential advisors to develop close relationships with students as they navigate their way through their pre-teen and teenage years and pursue their educational goals.
The residential facilities consist of two residential houses, Sakthong House for boys, Bundarik Hall for girls. Within the school grounds are: soccer fields, basketball courts, tennis courts and a large swimming pool. Each residence has living quarters for our Residential Advisors, which helps create a family environment. The residences contain a well equipped kitchen, common room for socializing and bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities. Wireless internet service is available for all residential students.
Our Residential Advisors receive on-going professional development and are committed to making the living environment safe, friendly, warm and caring for our students. We consider ourselves a family.
The Residential Advisory Team strive to make American Pacific International School more than just a place to sleep and study; they want it to be a second home for our residential students. We make it our priority to ensure that students feel comfortable interacting with the residential advisors and contributing to make American Pacific International School an ideal community.
The Residential Life expectations and policies are fairly enforced and have been established to promote respect for each person’s welfare and property. Students are expected to put forward their best efforts academically as well as to practice self-discipline, sound judgment, and good manners.
The Residential Life Program is a great stepping stone for senior students who may need more independence from their families, while still being closely supervised, before they take the big leap to the freedoms of college life.
We welcome you to visit American Pacific International School and take a tour of our facilities. Our residence is a place to retreat, study and relax.
We hope your days at American Pacific International School will be a memorable living and learning experience!
Each residential advisor acts as a mentor to a set group of students. The RA is in contact with the teachers at school to ensure that students are performing at their highest level. Each evening students benefit from study hall, a time dedicated to working on assignments and homework with the assistance of one of the teachers and a residential advisor.

Each weekend the students participate in our life skills program which is a program designed to teach the students the skills that they will need to live independently. First aid, cooking, financial management, home care and much more.

Each weekend the students join in our principled action program.
