Student Life

Students smile in assembly

The time you spend outside of the classroom with peers will help you build lasting friendships

The only thing more impressive than what happens inside our classrooms is what happens outside of it.

When we talk about educating the whole student, we are talking about giving you new experiences, supporting your health and wellness, and helping you discover more about yourself. To encourage this development, we have a range of options for you so everyone can find a sport, a club or an issue that they have a passion for.

Student life is about building friendships with your classmates – whether that's over a meal in the dining hall, hanging out in the student commons or getting involved in the school community.

We'll teach you skills to find the right balance in your day of academics, extracurriculars and downtime.
