A two-hour period each evening is allotted for study purposes. Evening Study Hall runs from 8:00-10:00 p.m., Sundays through Thursdays, and from 8:30-10:00 p.m. on Fridays. Athletic practices must be completely finished by 5:30 p.m. in the fall and spring and 5:45 p.m. in the winter. On Wednesdays in the fall and spring, practices end at 5:00 p.m.
During study hall students are responsible for controlling their own time and study habits, subject to the rules particular to each Form and dormitory, and are accountable for their behavior. In particular, during the evening students should minimize travel from one place of study to another and should not encourage or initiate telephone calls.
Playing computer games and using a cell phone for any purpose are not allowed during study time.
By mid-October after the first set of teacher reports, a Supervised Evening Study Hall (ESH) is available for students who, on recommendation of their teachers, advisor or academic advisor, would benefit from a more structured study environment. ESH provides a quiet, supervised place for students to work away from the dormitory during evening study hours. Students may choose to study in this more focused and structured environment as needed, notifying dormitory faculty of their desire to do so before study hall begins; they may also be assigned for an interval of the year by Academic Advisors in consultation with teachers, faculty advisors, and dormitory faculty to help provide greater structure and supervision for their academic work. Further rules for ESH are discussed with students upon their arrival.
