Schools with seated meals and chapel/assemblies
We are researching schools for our oldest son. I attended SPS and loved that we had daily mandatory chapel and occasional seated meals. These schoolwide activities helped build a close-knit community. My son has narrowed down his list to St. Paul's, Deerfield, Hotchkiss, Andover, Exeter, Groton, Peddie, St. Andrew's, and Mercersburg. We have researched these schools and found some information on chapel and/or seated meals. However, several of the schools' websites are vague regarding schoolwide activites. Which of these schools offer seated meals and/or daily assemblies/chapel? What do these activities look like at each school (frequency, organization, etc.)? Thank you for any information that you can provide!8 replies
