Whether you are a boarding or day student, you will feel at home at Hoosac. Students quickly bond over common experiences of sharing meals, attending classes, participating in sports and the arts and getting involved in community service.
Who Attends Hoosac?
A great majority of our students currently board at our school. As shown in the About and Admissions pages, these students come from over 30 countries around the world. Along with our international students, our boarding program houses students from all over the New England area, as well other states like California, Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina.
Extracurricular activities are designed to meet the varied interests of the School's diverse student body. Students make friends from all walks of life and end up supporting each other at various events on campus like athletic events, musical concerts, talent shows and plays. Many join clubs and spend time outside of class together. Qualified students nominated by classmates serve as prefects and proctors. These student leaders maintain order in the dorms, monitor and correct student behavior as needed and oversee the workjob program. All students are assigned routine tasks involved with the upkeep of the buildings and grounds and the general operation of the School.
Weekends At Hoosac
On weekends, students have the opportunity to stay on campus for events like dances or faculty open-house, or they can leave campus on school trips to NYC, Boston, or other closer cities for cultural events such as lectures, concerts, and plays. In the winter, there are trips to local ski resorts, ice skating rinks, bowling alleys, and every weekend there are trips to the movie theatre as well as shopping excursions. If students want to do something more ambitious and exciting like attend a Yankees game, the faculty will organize the trip. We truly operate as a big family.
