Next: an update on our co-curricular activities & field trips...
Each day after lunch, the boys will have the opportunity to participate in a number of fun & exciting activities (every week, we'll give them them the list for the week ahead, and they'll sign up for the ones they want). Afternoons will include activities like: speech & debate, swimming, chess, flag football, hands-on science experiments, and workshops on topics like test-prep strategy (for exams like the Secondary School Admissions Test).
We'll take one big field trip each week. Tonight, I'll tell you a little about the first two:
- Week One: Outdoor Adventure with Outward Bound! We'll spend a full day in the field, learning new skills and testing our limits with the world's premier experiential education program in the .
- Week Two: Camp Hippodrome A day of fun & imagination at Baltimore's historic Hippodrome!
