Hello everyone! We are Roy and Tammy, representatives of the XLIS resident-student community!
Please watch the following video and join us as we take you on a tour of the XLIS dormitory.
01. Program Introduction
The XLIS residential program was created to model a safe and comfortable ‘home away from home’ for students aged 12 to 18. We offer two options for our resident students: a weekly boarding option for students who reside in Xi’an, as well as full boarding option for students needing to spend their weekends at the campus.
Each student apartment can accommodate from 2 to 4 students and is equipped with modern and attractive furniture. High quality bedding, study tables, ensuite bathrooms, and large closets are carefully designed to ensure our students are comfortable and safe. On the first floor of the dormitory, a study room, an activity room, a cafeteria and a laundry room are available for our boarding students to conduct their daily activities while enhancing their resident experience at XLIS.
The dormitory management team is composed of both foreign and local resident teachers responsible for the safety and well-being of the boarding students. In addition, our students benefit from knowledge-sharing workshops, social and emotional counseling, and on-site health care. Moreover, an enticing weekly menu created under the supervision of professional nutritionists from ADEN CO., is revised weekly and often includes dishes suggested by the students themselves. Finally, 24 security and cleaning services are also provided by ADEN company which hails from France.
