Social events are an essential part of our program. In other words, we make time for play. Outings, get-togethers, dances, barbeques, impromptu gatherings and a range of other social events take place during school time throughout the year.
This long-standing tradition surprises students and faculty with a day-long adventure off campus in lieu of a regular academic school day. Historically planned by student leaders, this day can include hiking, picnics, beach sessions, ice skating, and even scavenger hunts.
Hilarity ensues as faculty perform an original murder mystery playscript on campus, followed by dessert and dancing. Previous titles include "The Science Fair (of Death)" and "BOYEEEE: A Search for America’s Next Top Boyband."
Casino Night is the Upper School’s homecoming equivalent. Faculty convert the Great Hall into a Casino and host a semi-formal evening of Blackjack, Texas Hold-Em, and Roulette. Students use their chip “winnings” to bid on prizes such as limo rides, concert tickets and air hockey sets.
