Nature is a powerful teacher. Whether it’s a hike in a nearby ravine, a team-building camp, or an overnight expedition into the wilderness, the BSS Outdoor and Environmental Education program introduces students to the wonders of the natural world. It also teaches them the responsibility to protect it.
The Statten-Northway Award, unique to BSS, inspires Middle School students to be involved in service, skills development and physical recreation. In the Senior School, it’s the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (Duke of Ed), a renowned program that fosters positive lifestyle habits and skills. At any time, more than 100 BSS girls are working on levels for the Duke of Ed.
