Being our Best Selves in the World 

Everything you do at Exeter – every class, every presentation, every piece of music, every sport and every act of service – is meant to help you discover your interests, your power and your responsibility.

Why do Exonians often say that their years at Exeter were the most formative of their lives? It could be the time, the place. Or the friendships they make. For many, the answer is found in the wholeness of the experience. The knowledge and the goodness. It’s life-changing.

We must reconsider each year what it means to help our students grow in knowledge and goodness and thereby lay the surest foundation for usefulness to humankind. … The urgency of our mission is as great today as ever.
Principal Bill Rawson
Not for Oneself
