Smith Stearns Student Housing

In contrast to the dormitory housing at many tennis academies, Smith Stearns provides four single-family homes, each with full-time supervision by resident house parents. We aim to promote a family style atmosphere – a true home away from home. House parents provide transportation, do laundry and cook meals – in addition to providing caring supervision and guidance.
