Weekend & Evening Activities

The Student Activities Committee, composed of Upper School students and faculty members, plans a variety of activities for Upper School students throughout the year including dances, sporting events, and movies; trips to museums, malls, and restaurants in Nashville and Chattanooga; and caving, canoeing and camping trips. Mountain biking and hiking is popular on school trails and on the hundreds of miles of nearby trails.

Transportation is provided into Sewanee, where students may shop and attend movies, performances and lectures. All Upper School students may participate in the weekend activities although boarding students are given first access to activities with limited spaces.
