Tour Guides At Boarding Schools
- There are 16 boarding schools offering tour guides as an extracurricular activity.
The Taft School Photo - More than a century has passed since Mr. Taft founded our school. While the world and the school have changed dramatically, his fundamental values endure: work hard, without regard for public acclaim; develop all your talents: academic, artistic, and athletic; and most importantly, give of yourself to others.
Vermont Academy Photo - Vermont Academy students are curious and adventurous. They are innovators and tinkerers. They feel free to take risks and try new things.
Millbrook School Photo - Millbrook's 800-acre campus is expansive yet intimate, traditional yet contemporary. The tranquil setting inspires life-changing ideas, while the energy and resources of nearby New York City are a natural extension of our classrooms. We are in the midst of the bountiful Hudson Valley, yet the commuter rail to NYC is just 5 miles from campus.
Concord Academy Photo - Elizabeth B. Hall Chapel is a frequent gathering place for the CA community, particularly for Senior Chapel Talks that begin three or four of our mornings every week.
New Hampton School Photo - Energetic, exceptional faculty who drive a customized learning experience.
The Webb Schools Photo - Although community service hours are not required at Webb, many of our students voluntarily choose to participate in one or more of our numerous service activities. In the past few years, our students have traveled to Costa Rica, Thailand, Romania, Australia, Nepal, Fiji and three countries in Africa on service trips.
Saint James School Photo - Saint James' picturesque 689-acre campus is conveniently located only 70 miles from the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area.
