Sustainability at Exeter

With 16 student environmental clubs and a mission statement that demands thoughtful stewardship, outreach and education, Exeter’s commitment to sustainability is manifold and present in every aspect of school life.

From the elimination of plastic water bottles on campus to Climate Action Day, opportunities to engage with peers and adults on environmental issues, enact change, and reflect on the importance of the natural world is an important part of life here at Exeter.
