Traditions and Trips

20172319262

We’re relatively young as an institution, but some of our traditions are already timeless.

We pepper the term with all kinds of celebrations, commemorations, and diversions. At the beginning of every school year, all ninth and tenth grade students participate in Camp Burgess, an overnight program designed to build confidence, improve communication, and strengthen our community. Other events range from running the Tufts 10K for Women to an in-school sleepover, from Fall Festival (bounce house included!) to ski trips, to the Classics Declamation Contest. What great things to look forward to!
