Student Life
Life in Upper School


The Upper School Retreats are designed to foster community, build friendships, and create long-lasting memories for students. One of the highlights of the Form I year is the week-long retreat to MO Ranch in Hunt, Texas during the month of August. MO Ranch is an experiential education facility in the Hill Country region of Texas. During their time at the ranch, Form I girls push themselves to conquer physical and mental challenges, develop new friendships, and bond as a class. Students in Forms II and III remain on-campus for their retreats each September. The Form II retreat is focused on exploring their purpose and mission as a Form II class and the Form III retreat is focused on strengthening the sisterhood that already exists. Form IV students complete their retreat experience at Allaso Ranch in Hawkins, Texas, where they have the opportunity to celebrate each other, plan for the year ahead, and reflect on what it means to be leaders in a community.
