Student Life

For Solebury School’s boarding and day students, each weekday brings a full schedule of classes and activities. Day and boarding students have lunch in the dining hall with their friends, faculty and staff. Boarding students enjoy dinner together with friends and the faculty families who live on campus.

On Wednesdays, both of our Middle School and Upper School students, as well as faculty and administration, attend an all-school assembly at 2:45 pm that often include guest speakers and performers. School concludes every day at 3:30pm. After school, all upper school students participate in sports or activities. Athletic teams meet five days a week for practice, sometimes more for games; activities meet three days per week.

Weekends at Solebury School are busy and fun. We offer activities such as day trips to Philadelphia, Princeton or New York City, shopping at the biggest mall in the Northeast, hiking in a nearby state park, or just quiet time for studying or relaxing. There's something for everyone. Day students are welcome to join us, except during "community weekends," which are designed specifically to strengthen the bonds between boarders.

Check out the Weekend Activities Calendar 2017-2018.


"Solebury School is a place where the math geek is also the jock and the rocker is also the theater kid. It isn't your stereotypical high school by any means, and I am so thankful for that." —CAROL WRIGHT '16
