Co-Curriculum & Residential Life

Living in a boarding school community provides a unique opportunity for our students and a great deal of learning happens outside the classroom. With this in mind, we have crafted a Co-Curriculum Program that challenges our students to become confident, responsible, and self-aware individuals. By meeting students where they are socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically, and intellectually, the components of the program work collectively to establish connections between individuals and promote a sense of community.

Residential Life Meetings & Activities

Residential Life is geared to our boarding students, offering a structured and nurturing environment for students to grow. Boarding students live in three residence halls and each residence mirrors the greater school population by combining a mix of both domestic and international students, new and returning students, and students of different grade levels. The boarding community gathers every Monday night to inform, promote awareness, and promote a strong community. During this time, students participate in forums, presentations, games, and activities.


A new co-curriculum program launched this year, #YOLOSMS that encourages the entire student community to explore topics and issues that contribute to well-being. The first in a series of afternoon events gave us the opportunity to consider how we are showing up as individuals online. We discussed the advantages and risks of social media, discussed cyber security, how to connect in positive, safe ways, and navigate relationships in a world that is increasingly dependent on virtual communities.
