    @skieurope That list is so old and outdated, we should probably lock this thread and start a new one with accurate information.

    Concord Academy has a few community weekends, where students are expected to spend some weekend time on campus, but it doesn't have any Saturday classes. Removing CA from that list.

    "2. I'm not sure you'd qualify handshaking before vacation as a "group hug" @doschicos ??"

    @GoatMama Plenty of hugging going on when my 2 were there. Perhaps that has changed with #metoo focus? I hope not.

    And yes, SPS is definitely a classes every Saturday school. Sorry to hear seated meal isn't as frequent as it used to be.

    One perk of all the ponds on campus is swimming at the docks and pond hockey. Such a bucolic setting.

    Note: I added "Outdoor Program", "Jobs Program", "Farm" and "Horse Program" as categories, as well as NMH's CMAP program. There's some other cool stuff out there -- that I don't know enough about to add in -- I think Webb School in Cal. has an archaeology museum, and I forget which school has the observatory.

    Adding:
    CA to Senior speeches
    Brooks to weekly Saturday classes,
    LA to no Saturday classes
    Indoor rowing tanks - Brooks and Deerfield (I think there are a few others but I'm not sure who)
    Mod System - CSW
    Alphabetized a bit
    Wasn't sure what @buuzn03's change was so may have dropped it-feel free to add it back in.

    @skieurope That list is so old and outdated, we should probably lock this thread and start a new one with accurate information.
    This is a new thread. I already made my comment that the info was out of date, but I am not taking on the responsibility of updating

    After post #20, contributors reverted to updating the older version of the list. Someone needs to merge the updates from post #20 into the latest post, #29.

    It helps if people list the changes they've made at the top of the post. That way those following can check for changes that didn't make it into later posts due to cross-posting.

    Mercersburg is about 85% boarding, has sit-down meals, uses the Harkness method in many classes, and requires a capstone experience (MAPS and Springboard programs).
