Admission Quicklinks

Peak Week may be the most beloved signature program of the Upper Campus. Every year, Middle and Upper School students choose from dozens of local, domestic, and international experiences that take their learning beyond the classroom and into new territory.

An Adventure of a Lifetime… Every Year


Peak Week introduces unique learning opportunities beyond the confines of the traditional curriculum. It allows faculty and staff to provide immersive experiences for our Trailblazers, enabling them to explore and pursue what captures their interest. These unique adventures also facilitate interactions and relationship-building among students, faculty, and experts in various fields of study while enhancing their adaptability skills—a valuable asset in today's ever-changing world.


No matter which journey our students select, they will come back overflowing with fresh ideas, skills, and confidence—propelling them through the rest of the school year and into their future.
