Be an explorer.

No more running boring errands with your parents, the weekends here are yours! You get to choose what you want to do, and it could be anything from shopping at Walmart or Target to seeing a performance at the Kennedy Center.

  • Shopping and Dining: We go on shopping trips to Walmart, Target, and the malls in Richmond and Washington DC; we check out international specialty markets in Richmond, and we go out to eat at all sorts of ethnic restaurants.
  • Sightseeing: We explore all the sites and culture DC has to offer including the Newseum, the Smithsonian museums, the Kennedy Center, and annual events like National Book Day and the National Science Convention.
  • Outdoors: We hike the Blue Ridge Mountains, go tubing in the Shenandoah Valley and visit Kings Dominion and other amusement parks in the area twice a year with friends from other boarding schools.
