In the Middle School, experiences focus on the outdoors where each trip complements the academic curriculum. These experiences in the great outdoors challenge, examine, and cultivate teamwork, leadership, and character development, all while having fun. Whether through individual or group pursuits, students are actively problem solving and overcoming challenges. Students experience what true leadership feels like while traversing and directing team members on a ropes course or through a group biological inquiry kayak trip.
The Upper School program aims to continuously strengthen connections and build a foundation of dignity in relationships amongst students, faculty, community and the environment. Students develop personal strength through experiential challenges; understand social responsibility locally and in the global community; and are inspired to lead lives of intellectual development with purpose and compassion. The outdoor leadership approach continues through the sophomore year after which the focus shifts to college exploration and readiness.
