Student Life:

In this small, tight-knit community it is not uncommon to find friends from all walks of life, from all grades, and from around the world. Days are full and busy: classes from 8 a.m. until 2:45 p.m., an athletic or art commitment in the afternoon, dinner, study hall and then, to bed!

But each day brings with it an extraordinary number of opportunities. The opportunity to take Chinese, to take photographs, to take a slap shot from the point. Quite simply, each day offers another safe chance to take a risk, to grow, and to learn -- and another opportunity to succeed.
