Outdoor Adventure At Boarding Schools
- There are 7 boarding schools offering outdoor adventure as an extracurricular activity.
St. Andrew's-Sewanee School Photo - One of the South's Most Beautiful High Schools, as chosen by Southern Living magazine, the school's 550-acre campus, including forests, bluffs and two lakes, offers abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation. A school farm, on-going wetlands study, and LEED Gold science building are just a few of the ways our campus also serves as learning lab.
St. Michaels University School Photo - Learning is hands on, with students often leaving campus to experience real-world examples of what they are studying. An example is this AP Environmental Science field trip to the Bamfield Marine Centre.
St. Margaret's School Photo - BELIEVE IN SOMETHING GREATER. * What kind of person will you be? Honest? Trustworthy? Responsible? * Our honor code inspires a culture of honesty and promotes trust in one another. * We have confidence that you will do the right thing, even when no one is watching. * We believe in you.
Wyoming Seminary Upper School Photo - Sem offers an exciting range and long list of clubs, activities and leadership opportunities. Often student-initiated, these groups provide experiences not found in the classroom or on the playing fields.
