Life at Loomis
Whether you live on campus or in a nearby town, Loomis is a 24-hour a day, seven-day a week experience — in the classrooms, on the playing fields and stages, in the dorms and dining halls, and all the spaces in between.
“There is never a dull moment on campus. With a variety of people with varying interests, there is always something happening.”
All students have at least one faculty member who is their champion.
For many, that person is their faculty advisor. Advisors have three main roles:
- to help you have a positive experience academically and socially;
- to oversee your academic program;
- and to communicate with your parents, working with them to serve your best interests.
You can expect to meet with your advisor on a regular basis — they will celebrate your successes and help you to address any challenges. Ninth grade advisors only have freshman advisees and have special insight into the first-year experience to help guide you and your family.
It’s all about community.
Serving the common good — both on campus and off — is part of the ethos of the school and dates back to our Founders’ vision more than 100 years ago.
Community Engagement offers students the opportunity to contribute time to a variety of public and private organizations in the Windsor and Greater Hartford communities. Community Engagement which includes the after-school volunteering program, the Pelican Service Organization (PSO), and a variety of student-led service-focused clubs, allows interested students, no matter how busy they may be, to share their time and talents with others.
Community Work Program
The mission of the Community Work Program (CWP), which operates as part of the Norton Family Center for the Common Good, is to engage students in productive and meaningful work that teaches responsibility, develops leadership, and sustains community. In serving the school community, each student and faculty member has an opportunity to contribute to our common good. Work assignments range from routine tidying of academic spaces to working in the school bookstore to serving as a tour guide or a dormitory prefect.
