Student Life

Activities

All Day and After Dark

Throughout the week, our students find ways to make use of every moment of their day. From athletics to co-curriculars, off-campus activities to all-school events, there is a little something for everyone. And, if they find something we don’t offer, our Student Activities Council facilitated by the Director of Student Activities, devote their efforts to making it happen with the goal providing creative and engaging activities during free times in the evenings and on weekends.

Weekends and Activities

In the evenings and on weekends, schedules are full of activities to participate in right here on campus. S'mores by the fire, friendly athletic competitions, McEvoy Theater performances, cooking and baking in the dining hall and relaxing crafting opportunities are just a few of the offerings.


Traditions
