Activities

As a traditional boarding school, Storm King School students find themselves involved in all kinds of activities. We believe in developing all aspects of our students, including their physical and moral growth. In this regard, SKS requires students to be involved in athletics, outdoor education, the arts, and community service.

AFTERNOON ACTIVITIES

Students participate in a daily afternoon activity in each of the three seasons; fall, winter and spring. Students choose between athletics, outdoor education, or one of several clubs for at least two of the seasons.

WEEKEND ACTIVITIES

SKS provides a robust and diverse array of scheduled weekend activities throughout the year. Students may choose from trips to New York City museums and landmarks, outdoor adventure trips or overnights, community service opportunities, or recreational outings. These trips are planned in advance and coordinated through the dean of students office. See below for a sample of our weekend activity offerings.

THURSDAY NIGHT SPEAKER SERIES

Every Thursday night, the entire SKS community gathers in formal school dress for a special dinner, which is followed by a program in the theatre. Events range from educational presentations to entertainers to community events such as student elections or performing arts productions.

CLUBS

SKS offers a wide and varied group of clubs and organizations. From a student newspaper, to Model UN to hiking and rock climbing clubs, our students organize a variety of clubs centered around special interests. 

… and if you have an interest that’s not represented, you’re welcome to start a club of your own.  Some of Storm King’s clubs include:
