STUDENT DORM: Pelita Harapan House

Have you ever imagined living in a cozy dormitory surrounded by a green, beautiful, and breezy hill? Pelita Harapan House is just 45 minutes’ drive from Jakarta.

Pelita Harapan House is the student dormitory of SPH Sentul City. Dorm options are available for 5 days or 7 days weekly stays. The dormitory provides a well-balanced life, just a few minutes walk from their classrooms and the amenities of this spacious campus.  The strength and support of the boarding community allow students to grow in ways most of them won’t experience until college.
The community starts with an exceptional team of dorm parents and supervisors who help students help students feel at ‘home’ and support with their homework and studies. Dorm life includes time for fun events at the end of the day helping build friendships and community.

The dorm students’ excellent classroom education extends into the evenings in our residential community. We take great care to assist our students in reaching their full potential in maturity, independence, spirituality, character, social skills, and talent development, while assuring their academic success.

Once a week, students enjoy devotions. They are divided into small groups and led by dorm supervisors to learn more about the Word of God and share about their lives.

Dorm Students don’t want to miss Family Night; every Wednesday the dorm community comes together for special dinners, fun games, and group fellowship.

On weekends students may take advantage of more vigorous activities in the school’s sports facilities or take time to explore their hobbies like cooking & baking.
