Prefects are students whose character, dependability, and potential for leadership enable them to maintain positions of responsibility within the school community. They are selected, following an application process, by the Director of Resident Life and the Dean of Students in consultation with the Head of Upper School. Prefects are then directed by the Director of Resident Life and the Dean of Students.
Prefects are selected based on a written application, an interview, community involvement, academic performance, and demonstrated commitment to school values. They serve as strong role models for their fellow students and assist resident faculty members in fostering a fair and kind environment. They assume responsibilities in the dining room, dormitories, and general campus life and are a vital link among students, faculty, and administration.
