Religion at School

Twice each week, we pause to consider the things that matter most. Chapel is the spiritual center of campus life. With roots in the Episcopal faith, students and faculty gather twice each week to attend a broadly inclusive, non-denominational celebration of the human experience. The cornerstone of the Chapel program is the senior chapel talk. Through the telling of stories and the sharing of insights, chapel talks raise our community up, remind us of what it means to be part of the human family, challenge us to be our truest and best selves, and confront a host of realities that call us to action with our minds and hearts, heads and hands, body and spirit.
