The Chapel is not merely a building on campus, but rather an important element in our commitment to promote the ideals of community, service, moral development, and spiritual growth. As a non-sectarian school, we seek to develop an atmosphere of free and open inquiry into the various aspects of faith and knowledge. Our goal is to assist students to clarify their beliefs, assess their values, and learn to act responsibly on the basis of their convictions.
The challenge of a non-sectarian chapel program is to provide spiritual and moral direction while exhibiting respect for the varieties of faiths which are espoused by our students. Thus, Chapel services held twice each week in the Lower and Middle Schools and once per week in the Upper School aim at raising questions, sharing information about different religions, and giving instruction on how to live a life of responsibility.
The chaplain, who serves as a teacher and coach in addition to his duties as director of the chapel program, is available to provide boys with pastoral counseling and advice.
