Literary Arts

Teacher and lower school student in libraryStudents are exposed to the literary arts beginning in the Lower School and continuing through the Upper School. While much of this exposure for younger students is through the language arts curriculum, older students have the opportunity to hone their writing skills by working with faculty outside of the classroom and through opportunities such as The Scroll, the Upper School student-run newspaper; InWords, our literary magazine; Archive, the all-school yearbook; and summer writing workshops.

Beyond curricular opportunities to develop creative expression in the Upper School, students are given the chance to take formal writing courses their senior year, including Writing Workshop and The Family in Contemporary Literature. Upper School students have also been recognized locally and nationally for their contributions to the literary arts.
