Community Weekend Life Labs

Attending boarding school offers tremendous opportunities outside of the classroom. Our On-Campus Community Weekends are not only a chance for our students to bond with each other, they are also a time for learning and personal growth.

Last Saturday morning, our College Counseling team held introductory information sessions for freshmen and sophomores about the college process. For those juniors and seniors not taking the ACTs, a series of "life labs" took place. These hands-on and practical workshops allowed students to learn about a variety of diverse topics such as car safety, hiking tips, cooking healthy meals, and financial responsibility. There was even a CPR certification session led by our Director of Health Services and (thanks to coordination with Aramark) a seminar on sports nutrition led by a sports medicine nutritionist and a dietitian.
