1. Upper School Retreat

A centerpiece of the retreat is the Full Value Contract. Almost immediately upon arrival at camp the students begin to work on how they will make the most out of the experience. Students work in small groups with their faculty advisor to create written guidelines taking personal responsibility for how they will contribute to and make the most positive impact on the retreat. As Retreat comes to a close students are reminded that the Full Value Contract is not just for Retreat, but is guide for positive expectations for behavior and reinforcing the pillars of our mission statement – Excellence, Civility, Integrity, Respect & Service – for the rest of the school year.
