THE CAMPUS

The Cabrini College is located in Lower Merion Township, one of Philadelphia’s loveliest, safest suburbs. A bank, post office, library, restaurants, movie theater, and many shops are available to students on a regular weekly basis through a shuttle service that will be provided.

RESIDENCE HALLS

West Residence Hall, is a three-story dormitory with a traditional layout (long corridors with rooms on either side) with a lower level. The main lounge, kitchenette, and soda machine are all on the first floor.  A laundy room is provided on every floor.  

RELIGIOUS SERVICES

When possible The School assists with arrangements for your child to attend services at a local church, synagogue, and/or other places of worship if she/he wishes. Further information will be provided at orientation.

CHAPERONES 

Under the direction of the Rock School Residence Director, a team of adult chaperones, headed by the experienced Rock School Summer Residence Director, provides all supervision at Cabrini College.  Parents can also apply to become a Chaperone for our Summer Ballet Intensive.  Click below for more info!

If you have any questions about routines and activities for Cabrini College residents, please call The Rock School at (215) 551-7010 ext. 1100. 

SIGNING OUT/ESCORTS

Every dancer must sign out when leaving his/her dorm, even if he/she is going no farther than the lawn in front of the dorm. We encourage students who leave the dorm to be in the company of at least one other dancer or a chaperone.

Students (13 years old and younger) affected by the early curfew (see Cabrini rules & regulations) must be accompanied by a chaperone when going to town. It is crucial that chaperones know each student’s whereabouts at all times.

All rules are designed to ensure that every student is safe at all times.

ROOM CHECK

Chaperones will periodically check student rooms to make sure that sanitary conditions are maintained. Chaperones will respect students’ privacy and will not, by any means, expect extreme tidiness; however, we are under a contractual obligation to the College to ensure rooms and common areas are kept reasonably clean and undamaged.

VISITORS

Please notify a Summer Chaperone, 24 hours in advance if your dancer will be receiving visitors.

KEYS 

The outside doors to both dorms are always locked. Each student will be given a keycard, which unlocks both the exterior door and his/her room door. Cabrini charges $100 for lost keys and will not replace the key until this fee is paid. Dancers must carry their keys with them at all times. Please be aware The Rock School makes no exception to its key replacement rule.

TELEPHONES

There are emergency telephones only. We will provide you with the phone numbers of all chaperones and the Residence Director’s office upon arrival at registration. There are also two pay phones in the Cabrini College Dining Center.

 

MEALS AND DINING

Meals are included in the fees for residence students. Students staying at Cabrini College will be served breakfast and dinner on the college campus, while lunch is provided at The Rock School's Ballet Bistro. Meals are healthy and nutritious to keep your ballerina/ ballerino energized to dance.

MONEY

We strongly recommend that students have a debit card from a bank near home. This will allow parents to deposit money in the student’s account and have no worries about arrival of funds or excessive service charges. An ATM is available on Cabrini’s campus.

When deciding how much spending money to give your child, please consider that she/he may wish to buy snacks (the studios are equipped with water fountains and the Ballet Bistro offering daily lunches and treats; the dorm has a soda machine), toiletries, souvenirs from The Rock Shop, ballet supplies, transportation between the airport and Cabrini, souvenirs and/or snacks purchased on outings.  Cabrini College also opens their on-campus bookstore once a week for students to purchase books, college supplies, and souvenirs. 

ACTIVITIES

Weekend outings to various places of interest (i.e. local amusement parks, New Jersey beaches, historic Philadelphia and the incredible King of Prussia Shopping Mall) are planned for our summer residents. These trips are optional and are not included in your tution/residence fee. Enclosed is detailed information and sign up sheets for optional off-campus outings.

Many additional weekend and evening activities, as well as smaller group outings are being planned. Students will have the opportunity to attend dances, movies, small group trips, arts and crafts workshops, board game nights, scavenger hunts, swimming, KMart shuttles, photoshoots and more. These activities will be offered to Cabrini residents at minimal or no charge.

Note:  At least one chaperone is on duty at Cabrini College at all times. Any resident who chooses not to participate in an off-campus activity may stay at the college.

AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION

Please fill out the form below for assisted transportation to or from the Philadelphia International Airport. Transportation is available to Summer Residence students only. 

The Rock School will be offering airport transportation service for students age 8-17 who are traveling with an "unaccompanied minor" status through their respective airline ONLY. Please check with your airline for specific details regarding this service prior to contacting The Rock School.

RESIDENTIAL PROGRAM RULES & REGULATIONS

The Residential Program provides:

1) Living accommodations that are clean, comfortable, and safe. 

2) A supportive, nurturing learning environment that promotes responsibility, citizenship, and independence while students pursue their goals in dance at The Rock School.

3) A food service program that provides a variety of nutritious and high quality meals in pleasant surroundings. 

PLEASE NOTE: Students are provided with a meal plan that includes breakfast, lunch and dinner Mondays through Sundays.

The Residence Life staff lives on the floor with the students. The Residence Director keeps the line of communication open between the students, School Directors, and parents and helps to provide a healthy, comfortable, and above all, supportive living environment for all students living in the Residence. This comprehensive handbook explains the rules of residence life. It is mandatory for all students to abide by these rules and curfews. Failure to follow these rules may be grounds for discipline, up to and including immediate expulsion.

Living in a residential environment requires a balance between preservation of the individual’s rights and privileges and those of the total community. In order to maintain this balance, individuals violating the rights of others, or Rock School policies will be subject to disciplinary action and/or dismissal from The Rock School.

Every effort will be made to ensure that the disciplinary sanctions imposed are fair, consistent, and in line with this program’s role to complement the educational process at the Rock School. The rules will be enforced firmly to protect the health and safety as well as the rights and privileges of ALL residents.

Residence Requirements

Rock School students are responsible for the facilities and equipment rented or loaned to them. They are required to accept individual responsibility for their actions as an important adjunct of group living. Consideration for others is the basic principle that needs to be followed by all students.

Each resident possesses individual rights, which roommate(s) and other residents are responsible for respecting. These rights carry a reciprocal responsibility. 

Every Rock School student is required to be disciplined, responsible, and courteous at all times. The School Directors reserve the right to suspend and/or expel any student at any time whose attitude, class attendance, work habits, overall conduct, or physical fitness for classical dance training is judged unsatisfactory.  

In order for your child to leave the program for a non school related event or outing the Residence Director must have confirmation – faxed, mailed, or emailed from the person escorting my child before permission is approved.  Resident activities typically occur during the weekend; therefore, we request that you submit this permission form by 5pm on the Wednesday prior to the weekend of the event.  Thank you.
