There are all kinds of weekend activities, including weekly trips to town for lunch and shopping, and frequent outings for dinner and a movie. If you like to be active, there are skating, skiing, and hiking excursions off campus, and fields, courts, and trails — for a walk, a workout, or a game — on campus. We even have a swimming pool that’s open when it’s warm. We visit Washington, DC, often to take in concerts, ball games,and museum exhibits, as well as for other activities suggested by students and faculty.
There are lots of social events with students from other schools as well. BSSAC, a group of boarding schools in Virginia, Maryland, and D.C., organizes dances, trips to amusement parks, malls, and movies, sports activities, and more. Focroft hosts a mixer and a semi-formal dance every year.
