Students Life:

Although the SKS community loves being On The Mountain, we need to move around a bit, too! Whether it’s personal supplies our students need to purchase—or just a change of scenery—we regularly schedule weekend trips to the Palisades Mall, the Woodbury Commons Outlet Center, and evenings at the local movie theatres. Shorter runs to Target and Wal-Mart are also part of our standard weekend fare.

Our Activities Coordinator also regularly schedules special trips to the Asian Food Markets, ski hills, paint-balling arenas, and even horseback riding.

The clubs often include: The Quarry Yearbook, Community Service, Weightlifting, Theater, Movie Writing, Movie Production, Cooking, Ski/Snowboarding, and Outdoor/Environment.
