If you’re like most of our students, you’ll find that the best way to balance our intense academics is by embracing all sorts of other experiences — from joining a sports team to being in a play to running a student club to volunteering on or off campus.
It adds up to a busy schedule, but we like to take the big-picture view: It's an experience of self-discovery, happening within a incredibly dynamic community.
And don't think for a second that you're going it alone. Our Partnership of 12 ensures that at least a dozen adults — advisors, teachers, coaches, dorm parents — have got your back. They're your own personal support network, helping you figure out and work toward your individual goals. We take on community issues, too, in our bi-weekly “Student Life Seminars” — small-group conversations about health and wellness, diversity and social justice, and other important topics that rise to the surface.
Your home base and social hub — for day students and boarders alike — is the dorm. And they really do feel like home (comfy couches, TV lounges, even outdoor spaces). They're where you’ll study, relax, even find your advisor hanging out after dinner.
