Daily Schedule

Note for New day students

* New day students will join the Orientation Program as boarders (Please bring a sleeping bag and pillow, casual, comfortable clothing- enough for two days, swim wear, sports clothing and shoes, toiletries, and an adventurous spirit). All new day students will stay at the School on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and all day Thursday. Since re-enrolling students return to the School on Thursday, day students typically return home on Thursday night (pick-up around 9:30pm), returning to school on Friday for a full program of events including classes for Grades 8-11, beginning with an assembly at 8:15am.
