Alum from various classes reflect on their MELP experiences. Whether in March or May, students eagerly anticipate the start of the annual Experiential Learning Program (MELP). Providing students with hands-on learning experiences outside of the traditional classroom, each MELP course offers students and teachers alike a chance to study an interest or a passion.It’s all about nurturing our natural curiosities and realizing that learning is all around us. 


Adopting a way of life

Legendary Learning Specialist Fran Morano reflects on the start of her career at Rectory. "It is a privilege to work in an environment where one has the camaraderie and support of so many dedicated people. But perhaps the greatest reward of all is the feeling of making a contribution to the learning experience of so many young people."
