Weekend Activities

There are many activities for our students on the weekends. For example, boys have opportunities to attend social events with girls’ schools, visit shopping malls, or go to the movies. Phelps also organizes field trips to museums, theaters, concerts and sporting events. Fortunately, the Greater Philadelphia area is particularly rich in these resources. In addition, our proximity to New York, Baltimore and Washington DC makes trips to these cities easy.
