Last month, eight of our students travelled to the United Kingdom to experience a week-in-the-life at Christ’s Hospital, one of the world’s oldest and most esteemed boarding schools. Founded in 1552, and located in the countryside just beyond London, the school develops students from all around the globe for a life of deep intellectual thought and meaningful social leadership. Click on the links below to learn more about our student’s weeklong exchange!

ODA staff reflections

Our 8 students (4 ninth graders, and 4 tenth graders), were accompanied by 5 members of the ODA staff. Our team lived in residence with Christ’s Hospital faculty, and explored ways of drawing their methods and practices into our own. The reflection below shares out some of those insights.
