The Masters School has a tradition of helping each of our students construct a distinctive, holistic and rewarding education both in and out of the classroom. The mission statement of our school promotes not only our students’ individual academic and co-curricular endeavors, but also the culture of respect, responsibility, and integrity inherent in our boarding program. Our residential community embraces the backgrounds and perspectives of each student so that they may participate actively, understand deeply, and connect meaningfully with one another.
SELF THROUGH COMMUNITY, COMMUNITY THROUGH SELF
The Residential Life program at The Masters School emphasizes principles that serve the health and wellness of our community and the individuals that comprise it. Our curriculum is based on the conviction that learning extends beyond the academic day and should include values and skills that are necessary to live in and maintain a strong, productive and ethical society. Through formal and informal programming, we design experiences that allow students to explore and solidify an understanding of our program values:
Each of our values is directly reflected in one or more of our program goals.
As the residential community of The Masters School, we gather to:
A supportive and understanding community is built on active participation, a sense of belonging, and mutual trust. Clear procedures, protocols, and expectations ensure a safe and stable environment. A sense of collective responsibility arises as students form and appreciate healthy relationships with peers and adults.
We – the Dean of Students office and residential faculty – are resources for all of our boarding families. Together, we can encourage students to take advantage of all that our school has to offer: attend events, meet new people, ask questions, explore nearby neighborhoods, and approach new experiences with an open mind, eyes and heart. We look forward to working with our boarding students as they gain a greater sense of maturity and independence.
