Loomis Chaffee students and faculty gathered in the Hubbard Music Center on Friday, May 6, for the annual English Honors Tea to recognize outstanding student writing during this academic year.
The Loomis English curriculum is rich with the study of literature and places a distinct focus on writing. The English Department provides you with the skills to be an effective and independent thinker while putting emphasis on the historical development behind the ideas and literature that are studied. Our teachers strive to create an environment in which you are able to participate actively in creating a classroom atmosphere where you and your classmates develop as scholars.
