US Students: The Academic Center is now open in Room 610. This 100% quiet space is used for making up a missed test or quiz and for personal general study time. The Academic Center is proctored every block on Day 1, 2, and 3.

Please know that in order to be admitted for the block, you must arrive in the first 5 minutes of a block time. If you do so later than that, you will not be allowed to enter. This minimizes the number of interruptions for those in the Academic Center due to the opening and closing of the door.

Do not enter or use the Academic Center without a proctor present.


If any of the items left behind in the Upper School pictured above belongs to you, please see Dean Booker to retrieve them.
