Inside Solebury School: Insights From a Recent Grad

Will, Solebury School alumnus (’10), shares his Solebury life and insights on this summer campus tour.

Will reflects on his relationships with faculty and the Solebury environment that helped him discover what he does best. Along the way he’s learned how to share his thinking and work through his ideas with faculty and classmates.

The new John D. Brown Athletic Center is home to a strong athletic program as well as connected athletic opportunities such as dance. Basketball, soccer, and cross country are strong teams. Students may interchange arts pursuits such as drama for their traditional athletic commitment. Solebury boasts an active drama program- producing three performances annually. The spring production features student directed shorter works.

Solebury features a different and challenging science curriculum. Students start with physics then move into biology and chemistry. Will commented that this sequence is challenging but builds a great foundation for future work. 90% of Solebury students complete three science classes- physics, biology, and chemistry. College guidance takes a connected and involved approach.

Will reserves his greatest praise for the faculty: “I credit all the teachers here at Solebury with everything. They’re tough. There’s no doubt about it. A lot is asked of you…”
