Recently retired Loomis Chaffee faculty member Fred Seebeck has been awarded the inaugural Lena M. Chen M.D. ’87 Faculty Prize for Mentoring.
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.
