All students are required to attend sit-down family-style meals together in the Dining Room for lunch, and boarding students attend seated dinners several nights a week. Faculty members and their families join the students in a relaxed, yet formal atmosphere, where they enjoy interaction with one another outside of the classroom.
Many students have the opportunity to participate in university courses on campus and receive both high school and college credits.  We partner with Penn State and Gannon University.
