1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
Choate encourages every student to strive for self actualization within a challenging yet nurturing environment. Throughout my four years here, I received through instruction in literary classics, as well ancient and modern languages. I believe that this foundation in language and literature has helped me to become a better writer and storyteller, a skill I hope to exercise in college and beyond.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
Choate has helped me grow into the woman I am today. I owe so many of my personal and career goals to what I discovered at Choate, and intend to remain involved with the school as an alumni long after I graduate.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
I would have made an effort to be more outgoing. Moving to a new place can be frightening, but having friends to talk to makes it much easier.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
I had fantastic teachers, caring friends, and a fantastic academic environment to explore. I am so grateful for my time here.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
Choate is a fantastic school with so much to offer. Though adjusting to being away from home can be difficult, make an effort to reach out to the students around you!
1.) Describe the extracurriculars offered at your school - what did you like most about it?
The array of clubs offered may seem dizzying at first, but there is truly a club for everyone at Choate. I forged so many great friendships through these clubs, and found that they were a great way to meet new people.
1.) Describe the school's town and surrounding area.
Wallingford is a great town, with parks, restaurants, and a movie theater all within walking distance.
2.) Describe the social life at your school - what did you like most about it?
I feel that living in the dorms really helped me to develop long lasting and close relationships with my advisers (adult resident assistants who supervise the dorms) and still look up to them as mentors and friends.
