Extracurriculars and Work Program

Outside of the classroom, our boarding school community is the setting of a program that seeks to develop the whole student. With the end of the class day begins an afternoon busy with sports and clubs. Students choose from a variety of sports, including cross country, archery, football and chess; and a selection of clubs such as first aid, a cappella, debate, and media.

We are a small community, and believe that each member of our community should pitch in to do the work that sustains life at school. In our work program, students are also assigned to tasks such as gardening, cleaning classrooms, or taking out trash and recycling, and do these for several hours each week. In addition, each advising group has two days each week during which they are on duty to do the dishes from lunch and dinner, and clean the cafeteria – with teachers participating alongside.
