Rectory School

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



Electives offer our students an opportunity to explore their interests and passions These classes give our students an exploratory experience in a broad range of content areas. Offerings include topics such as robotics, nature writing, chess, yearbook, orchestra, student newspaper, chorus, and drama. Students take an elective each trimester.


Enrichment provides a time when students meet with a teacher or tutor based on their individual needs and/or current workload. For example, a student might opt to meet with a math teacher to explore a current topic in greater depth, a history teacher in preparation for the upcoming class assessment, or a science teacher to review the lab report due the following week.

Make Up Study Hall (MUSH)

MUSH supports students as they learn to manage their time, organize their thinking, and assume increasing responsibility for their academic work. Meeting at the end of each academic day, MUSH provides an opportunity to complete unfinished assignments or continue work on long-term projects, all under the direction of a learning support professional.

Skill Block

Skill Block helps students develop the skills that support success in the classroom. These skills include, but are not limited to, organization, planning and prioritizing, self-advocacy, and communication. Skill Block is also a time that supports our Project Read program.
