Being a Day Student
At Oldfields, being a day student means having the best of both worlds - all the resources of Oldfields at your fingertips and being able to go home at night. Day students are fully integrated into the school community. Day students are assigned dormitory affiliations and identify with their dorm mates for dormitory dinners, holiday parties, and dorm activities. In an important leadership role, an upper classman is elected Head of Day Students and communicates the social, emotional, and academic needs of days students to the school.
Day students are required to participate fully throughout the academic day including athletics and co-curricular activities, and are also encouraged to partake in all of the evening and weekend events that take place on and off campus.
Many day students stay in a dormitory during the week for evening commitments, and boarders often go home with their day student friends on the weekends. This interaction is an integral part of what makes the Oldfields community feel like a family.
