The Residence Education Program at Mississippi School for the Deaf provides a "home away from home" for residential students. Age-appropriate recreational and educational activities are provided for the students to enjoy, and to help improve their independent living skills.
Resident Education Parents provide student supervision, regularly scheduled study time, and plan constructive and fun activities for students. Field trips, meals, and activities are planned to be age-appropriate, as well as educational and fun for the students. The Resident Education Parents provide guidance and assistance for students as they make the transition from home to the residential setting. Organizations and activities available for students include: FCA, Values for Life, Girl and Boy Scouts, intramural athletics, tennis, Tae Kwon Do, and a variety of other activities. MHSAA sanctioned athletics for junior and senior high students are also a part of the Residence Education Program. High school seniors have an opportunity to participate in a work/study program, and have access to independent living apartments.
The residential program at MSD encompasses 5 residence halls on campus. Saunders Hall (high school and junior high boys) and Dorm 10 (high school girls) and Dorms A (junior high girls) have recently been renovated, and renovations for B (elementary girls), and C (elementary boys) are currently being planned for the future.
