After the classes, seated meals, study halls, and athletic practices are done, the next important part of attending a boarding school is the opportunity to relax and have fun with other students and faculty on the weekends. These shared experiences play a significant role in student development and foster relationships that last a lifetime. Students have the chance to try new things and challenge themselves as individuals through the variety of activities offered.

Location, Location, Location!

Our 130-acre campus, just outside Washington, D.C., affords access to all the artistic and cultural resources of our nation's capital. Old Town Alexandria and Washington, D.C., offer a plethora of museums, theaters, restaurants, shopping, professional sporting events, and festivals and cultural events.

Off-campus activities may include trips to the Kennedy Center, the National Theatre, the Smithsonian, National Zoo, Georgetown shopping district, Washington Nationals and Capitals games, Pentagon City and Tysons Corner shopping malls, Kings Dominion amusement park, movies, restaurants, and outdoor activities and excursions, such as skiing and ice skating. Scroll down to see a list of past activities and cultural events.

While the faculty activities committee plans a full calendar of weekend activities, there are lots of additions throughout the year that are the result of student initiative. The activities committee is always looking for new ideas and is open to suggestions from the community!
