An Episcopal, co-educational 100% boarding school in Middletown, Delaware for grades 9 – 12

Senior Tutorial Program

VI Form students with a demonstrated commitment to independent work have the option of taking a spring tutorial. Comprised of three students or fewer, tutorials are offered in all disciplines, and provide a culminating academic experience for seniors as they work closely with a faculty member on a topic of their particular interest. Tutorials meet slightly less frequently than regular classes, but are reading and writing-intensive. Students are required to write weekly essays which they read aloud, critique, and debate with their teachers and classmates, in the spirit of the Oxford tutorial system. The tutorial framework allows students a degree of academic independence that more closely approximates the collegiate experience, and an opportunity to further hone their analytical, problem-solving, and written and oral argumentation skills. More than 15 tutorials are offered each spring.
