An independent co-ed day school for grades Pre K-12

Upper School

Community Service

Led by a student Community Service Board, the Upper School participates in both annual and immediate activities to help local, national, and international people in need. All projects are student-initiated, and all students spend at least 25 hours a year in community service. Ninth graders focus on activities to learn about and alleviate poverty, visiting shelters, organizing food drives, and volunteering on their own time in Fairfield County shelters. Tenth graders focus on education in the inner city by tutoring and mentoring in Bridgeport schools. Eleventh graders focus on homelessness, and start by spending a weekend in New York City helping in a homeless shelter. Seniors decide on their focus each year, raising money and organizing activities for a project of their choosing. 


This English Department tradition gives students the opportunity to share an original written piece (poem or short story) or perform a musical selection for parents, faculty, and peers in a casual and supportive setting. While students are often celebrated on the athletic fields, in performing arts concerts, and in academic settings, the Coffeehouse tradition gives emerging writers a chance to share their creative talents in an evening that celebrates the written word.
