    The Adventures in Store for the Class of 2017


    Great things are in store for the Class of 2017. Some are headed to New York City to start their business careers the financial capital of the world. Others are bound for medical, dental and veterinary school. Still another is headed to Italy, where she will literally be jumping out of planes as a member of the US Air Force. But wherever they go and whatever they do, this class will forever be bonded together as Dolphins.

    Class of 2021 Common Reading

    A Room of One's Own

    What does it mean to possess a space to think, to create, to question – a space that calls for gigantic courage and strength? Members of the Class of 2021 will be wrestling with that question – and innumerable other ones – as they tackle 20th century British author Virginia Woolf’s rich and complex extended essay A Room of One’s Own. The lessons woven into this challenging reading are meant to be applied throughout life. Yet they represent just the beginning of what these students will learn during their time on the Heights.
