All Freshmen at Moses Brown begin the school year with a three-day adventure at the Friends Camp in South China, Maine. Students will discover and clarify their personal goals, and begin to develop a shared sense of community that will shape their upper school experience. Under the leadership of the Director of Global Education and the Director of Student Life, they will focus on social entrepreneurship, a theme that will follow them through their upper school experience. Additionally, 16 seniors will travel with the group as peer mentors. With frequent guest speakers and special programming, ninth graders’ classes are often enlivened by outside experts who come to Moses Brown to share their knowledge with the next generation of scholars, artists, athletes, learners, and leaders.
Over spring break, they can work side by side with scientists and ecologists from the conservationist organization Para La Naturaleza in Puerto Rico, exploring mangrove, reef, and blue water ecosystems and the ruins of the Spanish empire and U.S. Cold War installations. They can help staff a series of medical clinics in the Dominican Republic, bringing much-needed services to underserved populations.Inquire
