*** NEW TEXT TBD *** One of the hardest things at Exeter may be trying to choose from amongst all the opportunities available outside of the classroom. From Grammy Award-winner performances to slam poetry events and Pulitzer Prize-winning speakers, Exonians have regular access to thought leaders and entertainers from around the globe.

Factor in dozens of student-led clubs and outings, up to eight athletic events on Saturdays, and more than 15 performance groups to join, and you begin to see the potential. On campus, or off, we’ve got your interests covered.

Our greatest strengths are the people who are here — both the students and the adults. It is a community of hard workers who share an incredible passion for education, a commitment to excellence, boldness of thinking, and an openness to solving problems."
Principal Bill Rawson
Community is the core of everything we do
