Preparing Boys for Life

Clubs & Activities

With more than 50 clubs and activities to choose from, our Middle and Upper Schools offer myriad opportunities for students to explore extracurricular activities and to develop leadership skills.

Our clubs are student-designed and student-led, with a faculty adviser who offers guidance and mentoring. Our students and faculty are passionate about their interests – and they often extend their club commitments well beyond the boundaries of our schedule and campus.

All of our clubs and activities are active during the full School year. At the beginning of each academic year, students have the opportunity to join or start clubs based on their personal interests, and we enthusiastically encourage them to get involved.
