Welcome to South Beattie! Our goal is to provide comfort, structure and responsibility for the boys in our community. In congruence with The Phelps School philosophy, we always want to provide a warm, nurturing, family atmosphere for these young men. Some of the dorm events of the year are pizza parties, Halloween costume and pumpkin carving events, movie trips, food runs, and dinners out — just to name a few. We are excited about this school year and we want you to know that your son is in good hands at The Phelps School.
The Phelps School Student Parent Handbook is an essential resource for information on school policies and procedures. Please take the time to review the handbook, but feel free to contact us with any questions of concerns that remain unanswered or unclear.
Please also review the Parents’ Guide to Residential Life found on the Housing homepage for details about when and how to contact your son, ideal visiting hours, addressing mail, and leaving campus.
Finally, remember that theft can occur anywhere, and even though we are a small community, boys should be responsible with all of their belongings. Each boy must bear the sole responsibility for the safekeeping and care of all personal items kept on campus. Each student is also responsible for damage to his room or other school property. We thank you for your assistance in these matters and for the privilege of working with your son.
