Students who choose to work in the US library agree to study quietly as each of us prepares for mid-term exams.  If you want to relax and play video games, update your fantasy football stats, watch YouTube videos, etc. please use the student commons. The game free zone is in effect during the library operating hours (7:30 am to 5:30 pm)  including lunch, break,and student choice.

Not sure what a GAP Year is?  This is a perfect way to find out!  All upper school students are invited to attend the Lunch and Learn to discover how to plan a semester or year of travel, service, work or adventure prior to attending college.  What do colleges think of GAP years? How to I apply to both college and GAP Year programs?  Where do I find GAP year programs? All of these questions and more will be addressed – Hope to see you there!
