Prefects are students whose character, dependability, and potential for leadership enable them to maintain positions of responsibility within the school community. They are appointed by the Dean of Students and the Head of Upper School in consultation with other administrators. Prefects are then directed by 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 mail room and are a vital link among students, faculty, and administration.
