After a full day of academics, athletics, and activities, boarders will get together for community time. During this time, students will gather in their assigned houses and reflect with their peers and the Summer School Staff on how their day went. These reflections aren’t written, but rather expressed verbally or through a house activity or competition. The goal of this time is to get students out of their comfort zone so that they grow more confident in their social and emotional abilities when interacting with peers and adults outside of the academic or athletic arenas. This is the summer after all! Here’s a list of some of our most popular evening activities:
At the end of the evening, students have an opportunity to focus on their work and prepare for the day ahead. Study Hall is monitored by our Summer School Staff and students are able to ask questions when needed. The goal is to ensure every student feels supported and confident in his or her ability to excel in the classroom.
At the end of the night, boarding students get together with the Summer School Staff to prepare for the next day, any future house competitions and the upcoming weekend. On occasion, ice cream is involved as the student can finally put their feet up before brushing their teeth and getting into bed.
Every student is assigned to one of the four Raider Houses, a tradition at The Hun School where camaraderie meets competition. Throughout the summer, students participate in a variety of point-earning challenges.
