A

ll of our Upper School students participate in the Duke of Edinburgh program. This award program encourages youth involvement in extracurricular activities, volunteerism, outdoor pursuits, physical and sports development, and contribution to the community. There are three levels of achievement: Bronze, Silver and Gold; most of our students graduate having earned the Gold award. Students participate in activities in all of the Duke of Edinburgh program’s required categories, track their own progress, and report results. This process develops independence and accountability, as well as fosters a deep level of commitment and involvement with the community.
