The Rectory School

An Independent, Coed, Junior Boarding (5-9) and Day School (Early Childhood-9)

March Experiential Learning Program

MELP is Rectory's signature program that takes place the first week of the spring term. Students eagerly anticipate MELP throughout the year for exploring a topic in depth through hands-on experiences, sometimes off campus and out of town. The program encourages alternative learning styles, creativity, and problem solving.

Students on MELP's Fantasy of Flight “It was a great opportunity to explore and learn about space and what the future may hold."
