Activities aren't just about fun and relaxation with friends—although, they are both fun and relaxing. They also provide opportunities to discover passions, develop strengths, apply academic knowledge in a practical way, develop self-knowledge, and learn to make the choices necessary to manage a busy schedule independently. Students start slowly and work with teachers over the years in developing the insights they need to be self-sufficient college students.
The Priory's co-curricular program includes class retreats, service learning projects, athletics, theater, music, and a broad range of activities made available during the school day.
For Middle School students, most activities are experienced within their curriculum and with their classmates.
More than 30 club and activity choices are available to High School students during "H Block," a class period devoted to these choices, or to tutoring. All activities have faculty advisors, but in most, students take the lead. One purpose of these choices is to provide a realistic way for students to try out new interests all through their school years. Grades are minimized or absent, and students learn to create an inclusive atmosphere.
